Ac ?

We are trying to decide between a Jay Flight 28BHBE or the White Hawk 28DSBH. One of the big reasons I like the Jay Flight is the option for the 2nd AC. A couple of years ago we had a 34' 5th wheel with only one 15k AC. Living in Texas with summer temps of ~100 the coolest we could keep it was in the mid-high 80's inside the trailer. I want to avoid that situation again which is why I was leaning towards the 2 AC model.

Does anyone have any experience with either trailer in summer temps like that??

I have the 32BHDS with the 15K AC. While it only has 1 ac unit it does a great job of cooling the entire TT. Our front bedroom has sliding doors and one ceiling ac vent. Our back bunk roof has a sliding door and one ac ceiling vent. The main area has 2 ac ceiling vnts and the bathroom has one.
We camped in July at Disneys Fort Wilderness for 11 days, the temps were in the high 90's. The ac unit kept the TT very cold.
I do wish we had a seperate ac for the bunk room since the kids do not like the TT as cold as I do.
I would buy the 2 AC model just for the option to have different parts of the TT cooled differently.

We've camped in places where the temps were 111 to 114 degrees. My DW wouldn't even take the first step up into one without 2 ACs ......

Being from and camping in West Texas, I can tell you my next Jayco will definitely have 2 a/c's. I keep comfortable at 100+ degrees with one a/c and two medium size box fans but only if I crank them all up before noon. If I set up in the afternoon, it takes till evening to cool down to where it is tolerable. Opt for the 2nd a/c in Texas.

Well being you know how brutal our Texas heat and humidity can be, you should make sure and have two a/c's.
I have a 07 314 bhds that does fine with just one a/c as long as the temps stay below 100.
It is those long summer days when we have a heat index over 100 that get you. I added a second a/c over the spring and couldn't be happier. It really makes a Big difference in how comfortable it feels on the really hot days. Hope this helps.

These campers are just moneypits anyway. We might as well be comfortable in them for a few dollars more. Sure wish we had two ACs.
