Air conditioner mod

Hey All, Will be putting an air conditioner in my 13'scamp. How much cooling will I need? I'm looking at a 2500 BTU Climate Right unit. Thanks for your input. Dennis.

You may not believe this, but I would not go smaller than a 5K (5000) btu. The reason? Lack of insulation in the Scamps (and Casitas, etc). I have the roofmount 9200 BTU and on the hottest days in the southern sun, it will almost run continuously! What you're suggesting may be ok for night-only use when the sun is gone. Just keep all of this in mind.

I have a 5000 BTU under the front bench in my CT13. I'm going to upgrade to am 8000 BTU because it really isn't enough in South Florida summer. It really comes down to when and where you camp.

Did not expect so much but really makes sense
