Hello again, what do you all have for Air Conditioners in your campers? I started this journey simply looking at campers with the 15K AC and have found several around with the second AC in the bedroom.

On hand if the Eagle line of campers is what they say they are and the AC's being brand new I would think the 15K size AC would suit just fine.

I think the second AC would be a really nice option and in my opinion if financing for ever any way.... why not have it.

So what are people's thoughts and experiences with either the 1 or two AC campers?

thanks once again!

We have 1 ac unit and it works fine. But we are in Michigan. I'm sure it makes a difference in what your weather is like.

I have 1 AC unit and it works fine for me,plus you can zone it.If your hanging out watching tv you can open vents wide in kitchen area. When you go to sleep if it's warm in the bedrooms you can close off kitchen area and send it all to bedrooms.I am usually hot all the time and run my home AC from April til Nov,and the AC unit in the trailer kept me nice and cool.However the bedroom is already fitted with everything for a second AC unit if you chose but as of now I see no point for it

I see you were also looking at the Triple Slide bunk house,we also looked at it but having the second door for the bathroom was a must for us,plus the bathroom seemed to have more legroom than the TS.The bunk set up is a little nicer but ours worked great for my kids and 2 friends to hang out in.I liked not having a slideout on the side we hang out also,1 less thing to have to walk around

Thanks Merril and BHDS.

So the both of you have the one AC and are doing fine. I didn't finish my thought before about the Eagle build but I am sure it is way better than my 2008 camper with only the 13500 AC in it. New build, way better insulated, new AC should equate to a way better system all together. We camped on 4th of July this last summer in Nebraska and with 4 kids in and out the AC seemed to slip a few degrees during the day. So again my camper versus a new Eagle should see a huge difference.

I have not seen any campers local to me in Nebraska with a second AC already in them but several on the East coast and South where heat is more of a factor.
Thanks for the responses, 1 AC and is available here may save me some cash too which is good.

we have the 338 rets and I did have the prep for 2nd a/c standard but we figured we would go with just one .... after this first summer in it I think I am going to go on and have the bedroom one installed, ... first reason is because the one runs quite a bit to keep it cool, the second is because even though at night we close the vents off in the living area the kids say they still freeze out there and our room is just cool. I found a complete unit new on one websight for 495 dollars with the inner vent assy included and the dealer said they would install it for 1 hour labor so it still ends up cheaper than we would have paid for the 2nd a/c option on our order of the unit

Thanks Paint! The two I am of course looking at are not setup for 50 AMP or the second AC. All of the others outside of my area are.
