Default Roadtrek CS Adventurous Being Built

If you look closely at 1:23 in video you can see what looks like the evaporator under the hitch (it's silver colored) with dual electric fans that look like black plastic. So it looks like most of the A/C is under van behind the rear axel.

Correction on my last post. That was probably the condenser on the video at 1:23 shown under the van. It looks like one of these.

Interesting on the split system AC. It may be one of the few ways that they can get the AC off the roof and stay within the no cut rules of the unibodies, which will soon be all there is to upfit.

We have looked at nearly all the floor installs in the small trailers as we have contemplated a small trailer to go with the Roadtrek. The newer and better installs seem to be using the Coolcat and mounting it totally within the trailer, compared to older styles like Aliner that have a wall AC hanging out the side of the trailer. Most don't use ducts on them for the air into the trailer and just blow out the grates like in the current Coolcat builtins in the B's like Roadtrek Chevies. They do often duct the condenser air from separate points in the exterior to prevent the dreaded looping of air that the Coolcats can get. I like the idea of the floormounts as it puts the weight lower and makes for a very stable mounting.

I wonder how much trouble, or not, they have with road crud plugging up a condenser and fans hanging under the van with the split systems.
