I would do it! prices having a second ac unit added recently, anywhere from $1500 to $1900. A grand is a steal in my eyes, plus you can roll it into your loan if you have one.

We like our second AC and even tho we have never had both running at the same time. If we need AC at night we run the one in the living room and we don't have to listen to the noise. When we are in the living area we use the one in the bedroom and all we get is quiet cool air. It will mean that you will have 50 amp service but you can use a 50 to 30 adapter and your trailer will work just fine.

We have a 2013 28BHBE with the thermal pkg , we have the 15K AC option, but not dual AC. I would have to say no to the second unit, unless you have money to burn.

Ours stays plenty cool with the fan set to low or high. There is an AC outlet in the ceiling over the master bed, and it blows hard, right on you. There is another right by the bunks, that I aimed towards the bunks, and the kids were cold and made me point it away. There is another in the bathroom, so it's plenty cool.

The only advantage I see is perhaps if one fails, you have a backup. Or if you camp where it gets really hot.

We have an 351 RLTS Eagle with 2 AC units. The dealer actually tried to talk us out of the 2nd unit. We are really happy that we went with 2 units especially for the reasons listed by Clutch. When we are in the living room we run the bedroom unit and don't have to listen to the unit. When in the bedroom we run the living room unit. We also use a 50 amp to 30 amp adapter when 50 is not available.

You can never have too much A/C. BEtter to have and not need then to need and not have. I wish my Greyhawk motorhome had two A/C units...

Make sure to get a low profile unit up front. It will give you a few less inches of height. It is the highest thing on the roof.

Another benefit of two AC's is that you can cool a hot trailer much faster.

Our previous trailer had one AC. It would take hours to cool the trailer after towing in hot weather.

Our current trailer has two AC's. It cools down in a fraction of the time.

No question about it, I would get it added. It will never be less expensive than from the factory. It makes roughing it even more comfortable and quiet.

Should we get the 2nd air conditioner in bedroom?

I can see the benefits of reducing sound by running one or the other depending whether or not you're in the bedroom, but we have a 32TSBH with a thermal package and 15k a/c and it gets and stays plenty cool during our hot Iowa summers. I have no reservations other than I seriously question the logic of putting a second a/c in the front bedroom instead of the back bunk area.
