Keeping cool in a x23b

Any ideas of how to stay cooler in the x23b? Sitting here in 97 plus degree heat in Maryland. Now, we are in the sun with no shade.... I do use the gizmos and have shaded the sides of the ends. I also have the bathroom door shut. Any more ideas out there to stay cooler ? Thanks!

Did you do the Reflectix Insulation install?

Reflectix Insulation | Popup Camping 101

I put it on the floors of the bunk end and cut them to fit the window openings to include the glass and skylight/fans and they really helped with my 21 SSO.

Have you cleaned the AC filters?

I've been in 105 temp with no issues. Bunk ends are warmer than the rest of the unit. But still reasonable.

Easy..... Just stay home when it's that hot!! (Kidding)

We have found closing the curtains on the bunk ends helps a lot with cooling.

I just measured the window openings and went to Home Depot and bought the width/length needed.

Reflectix 48 in. x 25 ft. Double Reflective Insulation-BP48025 - The Home Depot

I had some thin white table cloth material from an outdoor party store that I used to make the templates. The front and back were the same and the sides were just mirrored so there was only two templates. I cleaned-up the lines and cut them out and then overlaid them on the Reflectix and traced around the outside edges and then cut out the Reflectix.

They slip in between the screen and the tent material and I carried them in between the mattress pads when traveling.

For the windows I traced the outside of the windows with the same table cloth material and then when I was finished I lined them up on the inside of the trailer to get an idea of where to cut the slots for the handles. I use Velcro to tick them to the windows in unobtrusive areas.

Make sure your A/C filters are clean so your A/C is working at maximum efficiency, close your curtains or even better close the bunk end that is facing the sun.

The company you got your pop-up gizmos from also sell the liners. All you have to do is measure and they do the rest...

I can see where this would help in the winter to keep warm air in, but not sure it would work well in the summer where it might trap warm air in?
