Adding air to bunks

Our camper has bunk beds which gets no air flow. I would like to see or hear what others have done to add fans.
We camp where there is always electric. So we use our AC but it still is hot in bunks.
I looked at the Endless Breeze but they have 12 volt plug in. By the bunks I only have 2 electrical outlets.

We had that problem in our previous 184BH. The easiest solution for us was a small oscilating fan on the counter. I found that as long as the air inside the camper moved the bunks cooled down.

I bought the cordless ryobi fans and hung a zip tie from the overhead vent. Then hung the fan from the zip tie to suck in the cold air and push it more forcefully around the room. Tacky, but efficient.

We have a 28bhbe and I was thinking about this today. Top bunk you can hang meat in if you want, bottom not so much. My oldest son mounted a fan inside his bunk but it just moves air, still not as cool. He says he wants to mount it on the ladder case at the entrance which will draw air in. I bet that will make all the difference. Curious if there is a way to tap in to the duct somehow and run something down the wall inside there???
