Maybe you could put a honda 2000 generator on there for the AC?
I've just researched roof a/c's for an upcoming replacement. My first to I read all the specs and youtube videos. The answer to your question is yes. 14" x 14" is the standard opening for both roof vent fans and a/c's. They even seal to your roof with a foam gasket (no messy caulk to apply, but you'd need to remove any left from the original vent). Not a difficult install process.
But . . .
Just be sure your roof area can support the approximate 90 lbs. which will be bouncing on top as you go down the road. Also, a 10ga. 110/115v power cord will be needed as well as a 20-30 amp breaker. So if your okanagan doesn't already have existing 30A service, you'll need to have that professionally installed.
If you install a small enough and high efficiency unit, you may get by with 20A electric service to the a/c, but only a knowledgeable electrician can tell you for sure.
Is the okanagan a large box-top class b rv?
