Scamp 16' - AC install?

Hi, all,
Today we sold our beloved 13' scamp in order to upgrade to a 16' size. AC will be necessary. I see a nice 2005 trailer available without AC but with the following picture. Does this mean it would be fairly easy to install an AC unit? It appears as though the front square in the ceiling may be the approximate size of the opening needed for an AC unit. Thanks in advance!!!
Lisa

Q. Can roof air conditioners be added to older Scamp trailers?

A. All 5th wheel Scamps can use roof air conditioners. Older 5th wheels may require the oak reinforcement supports (can be purchased from the Scamp parts department). On most 16 foot Scamps from the year 2000 the roof has been supported for the roof air. On 16 foot Scamps prior to this year most didn't have the roof air support. To check for support find the 120 volt wire tucked behind the fabric strip. This wire will be on the same side of the trailer as the 120 panel with the circuit breakers. Any trailers with the wire and support in the roof can have the roof air added. Thirteen foot Scamp trailers don't have the roof air support unless there is already a roof air installed or if the original buyer requested that the trailer be built that way. Also most trailers with a power vent in the roof air spot won't have supported roofs. Most 16 and 13 foot trailers prior to 2000 used a side air conditioner in the lower part of the closet by the door. This air conditioner is no longer available.

Scamp (Evelands) might be able to tell from the VIN number if you have trouble finding the wire.
