I appreciate the information. I settled on the Coleman 9200 Mach 8 Polar Cub, with the ceiling unit with the controls in it. Finding one is another story. Getting it before the end of summer, another. Trying to get some information from Big Daddy's Parts. It would be nice if ETrailer sold them. Thank you again for the responses.

I just ordered a 9200BTU unit from RecPro, made by Houghton. What few reviews I have seen have been positive. It is supposed to be here next week. After I get it in, I will post an update, or have more installation questions[emoticon] Thank you.

My Coleman will freeze up if I'm not careful. Does the Houghton have a freeze sensor?

I use evaporative coolers in my Las Vegas house and top-end $1500 unit does work well, but even in dry Las Vegas we do have higher humidity seasons when it will loose the efficiency.
Considering risk of water splashes and limited use, I vote against putting it on RV.
For my latest conversion I order low-profile AC From Rec Pro
It really is low-profile unit, although not small and is having good referrals. I did not use it yet, but for me typical AC with their high profile are looking like balloons on TC.
Notice that I order 13.5k for smaller Sprinter van.
We had 12.5k on our Lance camper and in 120F heat it was barely making it. Opening any cabinet was like opening an oven.
