When my wife and I bought our aged camper, the two of us had no plan how hard it would be to keep cool.
It’s only 22 feet long, which is short in terms of campers.
There is a big A/C device on the ceiling, which works just fine. Whenever the two of us set the A/C to cool and put the fan on high, it doesn’t take long for the cool air to come through the several vents affixed to the A/C unitâ€¦ However, the A/C device doesn’t do a good job at spreading the cool air, because there are no floor vents prefer the new campers. The cool air can only be felt coming directly from the air vents on the A/C device itself. To make matters worse, there are big windows on both ends of the camper, however my wife and I like how much light this lets in, but with the sun comes intense heat. In fact, the A/C device can run and run all day long at max capacity, but it will never cool the camper if the sun is beating through the windows. The people I was with and I couldn’t substitute the A/C unit, and there was no sense in adding air vents throughout the floor because it would cost just as much as we’d spent on the aged camper. Instead, the two of us took a risk and bought a roll of reflectix for the windows. The people I was with and I cut each piece to fit each window perfectly, and the two of us velcroed each piece onto the window frames, then after putting each piece of reflectix onto the windows, it took only 30 hours for our camper to think cool again!
