This is a great mod and I'm very glad you've shared it! A/C is a must for my husband, so this is one of the first things we'll do to our new Burro. I've been concerned about the integrity of the roof with regards to a roof mounted unit, and I don't personally care for the look of a window unit. This seems like the perfect solution! Thanks!

George and I have used the deck 6 inch deck plates and have had no problems at all. Exhaust thru the front towards the back of the car:. Intake from the side. We both put on the side below the seat on the right of the door. You will need to seal. Greg

This is a great mod. I've been looking for options on installing a/c in my scamp and this is moving to the top of the list. I think it would work great under the front bunk. Thanks for the detailed information.

HI I JUST GOT A 1985 U-HAUL CT-13 and I would like to put an a/c unit and I was wondering were you put the water drain for the a/c . And what did you use to cut the hole in front.

I like the finish in the ceiling rib, hope he'll come back and tell us about THAT.

Eddie, a multi tool works great for cutting FG.

The pics are great, but can you list the steps for a woman doing the work with little help? 😁 I really like the placement, but don't understand each pic. The two round covers on the outside, Do you just open those up, or is there a tube to attached at some point? Thanks!

From what I can see, it looks like the OP didn't use tubes, but instead isolated the back and side exterior vents using a piece of some kind of board and some aluminum tape. I'm planning a similar mod in my LiteHouse, installing it in the cabinet that used to hold the icebox. I hope to have it ready for a music festival on 23 May.

Just like JHayter stated, I used rigid insulation board sealed at the seams with aluminum tape. The insulation board separates the intake from the exhaust. The covers come off, one for the air intake and the other for the exhaust. No tubes are used. This was by far the best mod ever done to the uhaul. The camper is very comfortable at night with the ac on.

Rob - Which AC unit are you using (manufacture and model)? Did you have any difficulty with the condensate drain?

I am back

I have not logged on for a long time but I am back. I had the chance to camp during hot days and the AC mod is wirking like a charm. The interior is cool even in very hot days with direct sun over the top. I can confirm that a small 5000 BTU is enough for the size of the cabin.
