Posts: 14
we have purchased a 81 13ft Scamp but it has not got here yet but i am already looking for an air conditioner i can put in the bottom of the closet. Could anyone who is not snowed in measure the width of the closet door opening for me, as i have found a nice 5500 btu unit but want to be sure its not too wide,i dont want to have to cut the opening if i can avoid it. TIA Don

Overall inside closet width is right at 18", the closet opening in my '83 Scamp was just at 14"...I had to notch my opening 1/4" on each side to get my 5000BTU unit to fit. BTW, its easier to work from the outside than in. You will be cutting a hole, maybe two, on the outside wall to allow intake and exhaust.

Check out my A/C Closet install if you'd like...

Be SURE you have allowed for excess moisture to drain out of the trailer and can inspect the flooring under the a/c easily -- Something like this is a prime way to put moisture on the floor over a long period of time, even if just condensate from cool parts, not just that removed from the air normally.

Don, as a newbie to FiberglassRV you perhaps haven't had a chance to view Lance MacArthur's installation in his (used to be) Blue Boler. I've looked at these picture a bunch of times and think it's great. The best part, is the A/C is removable and you won't need to haul the weight around when you don't need it...you could then (probably) use the space for other things.
