1988 Casita

I'm looking at a 1988 Casita in the days to come. It does not come with air conditioning. Can a 1988 16' Casita have an aftermarket air conditioner installed? If so, how?

Thanks in advance for any help or advice.

Unless you plan on fiber glassing in some additional support inside to the ceiling, I don't think that putting an A/C unit on your non-reinforced roof would be a good idea. Back then, the 16's didn't come with an A/C option, and so the older model trailers weren't built with adequate reinforcement of the roof areas to support an A/C up there.

Casita has never installed roof A/C on the 16’ers, instead opting for a window unit on the floor in the right front corner (deluxe) or center front (standard). You could probably duplicate that installation, but there are three things you have to deal with: (1) two large holes in the fiberglass for air intake and exhaust, (2) baffling Inside the compartment to separate intake and exhaust, and (3) drainage for excess condensation. It’s not particularly efficient for air flow down on the floor.
