Unfortunately both of the product lines you linked to are suitable only for marine use. They both pump in water as part of their cooling system. They are not going to work in a land based RV.

Hi mounted mine in the closer and it works very well. It does require quite a bit of modifications to the closer but c
It can look and work well.

I have seen some older Scamps with ac units near the floor at the front of the trailer (vs mounted on the rooftop like Casitas). I think was a great idea but it seems most of the fiberglass trailer manufacturers are prone to go with the flow and copy one another these days. I would prefer to keep the prime real estate of my rooftop clear for future modifications that are not currently offered as an add-on (such as solar panels). With an ac unit installed on top one has to be concerned with height restrictions for indoor storage...as well as the unsightly "wart" sticking out the top.

My 2010 13'er came with the rooftop and I wouldnt back up. It's up out of the way...the cool air "drops" to the floor like it should, it has the heat strip...nice!

I'm not wasting closet space and it's a small platform to view inside on the ceiling. The "wart" on top is WELL worth it and wouldnt be without it. Without A/C, I would put my Scamp on the market TODAY! You'd have to live in the hot/humid south to understand that.

I DID install a Hunter digital thermostat to control it and it's more comfy in the Scamp with the 1 deg capability (at night) than my house.
