I don't know about a roof top AC but... I just saw at our local Home Depot the smallest "in the window" type AC for $89.00!! I'm tempted to rig something up.

I can't help specifically with a Trillium Roof A/C either...and I agree with Gina D. HI

However, you may want to read this topic...it's about a Scamp. It appears older molded fiberglass trailers, of all brands, have a hard time carrying the weight of a roof A/C.
1982 Scamp 13' AC Question, Install new Air Conditioner. It may give you some other ideas.

Oh no, don't jump to conclusions....hopefully someone with the exact trailer you have will chime in and give a definitive answer. I just wanted you to read the link for the info. And like Kevin's A/C, a window A/C is hundreds $$ cheaper than a roof model...if that's important to you.

I have done that with a trillium 76. It's just perfect. I installed the AC in the front windows. I connect it directly by the outside . It s cheap, works perfectly only when you need it. I used to put it under the table when I dont use it...

The following Link shows how I did mine:
My removable window air conditioner.
A Trillium has louvered windows, so with some modification, this might work as a permanent installation. You'd have to remove the glass louvers; but try to keep the window frame intact. Make the vertical "L" brackets long enough to attach to the window frame with screws or nuts & bolts. You probably won't have to radius cut the corners...

Mine is NOT a permanent installation. Also, I have discovered that 5000 BTU's is not adequate in a 16' uninsulated egg when you are in Palm Springs in June where it is [b]113* and no shade in sight.
