It took some time to design, but once finished it would simply clip into the passenger window and it worked flawlessly. Of course, we need 110v to plug it in, but it kept us cool many hot nights, even with the canvas top popped open. I am sure we looked like the Beverly Hillbillies, but being cool on a hot night was priceless and no one seemed to mind. Just a trip down memory lane, but it can be done...
Safari Condo offers them for GMC Savana at $794. Canadian + taxes, that is $589, US BUT you need to pick up in Quebec, if you do take your invoice(s) and stop at the border to get the 15% taxes reimbursed for non Canadians
