I'm going a slightly different direction. We looked at an SLX model in the same floor plan as ours, for about $1500 less. But there are a few nice little extras with the Flight. I don't know if this was our dealer or the Flight, but our 26BH was standard with the 15K unit.

My 26BH has a 15k air conditioner, and it's probably overkill. I was in Death Valley in September, and it had no problem keeping the inside temp at 78 degrees. It was 110 outside, with the TT sitting in the full sun. But then the 26BH is just a box with no slides, so it's sealed up pretty well.

This is a valid point that should be considered. The more slides and large windows you have the harder to heat/cool the unit.

This floor plan has no slide but has 3 large windows at the back which is why we like it.

Question. The unit a local dealer is getting in is having it with 13.5 air. If I get them to swap it out for a 15k unit in the deal how can I tell it truly was swapped out? Is this the type of thing the only way you will know is to get up on the roof, remove the covers and read the id label?

Is there any concerns having the dealer swap out a unit?

With all the given info my opinion is you would be OK with the 13.5K AC in a 25' no slide unit. But if they will do the upgrade go for it.

There should be a label on the underside of the AC unit that can be accessed by removing the ceiling panel. The model number can be searched on the manufacturer's site, and will tell whether it's a 13.5k or 15k model. That's how I finally figured out mine had the 15k unit.

I've got a 32BHDS and I sure wish they had the option for a second A/C back in 2011. I've got a 15k unit and it struggles to keep the inside of the trailer cooler than 80 in the Texas summers. I've contemplated adding a second unit myself, but haven't gotten around to it. We try and avoid camping in the dog days anyway, but it would still be nice to have the cooling capacity. The dealers around here don't even order trailers with the smaller A/C; as a percentage of the whole, it's chump change for the upgrade.
