those ac are expensive but i have one in a pop up and it will freeze your balls!  i prefer the cool night breeze, these teardrops are sweet! you can go from cheap to fancy and everything in between.   looks like you could have a nice camper for 1000 bucks or less! especially if you improvised and used alot of used stuff.  a coleman stove for cooking in the rear, and an overhead water tank for dish washing. heck you could buy a junk camper for like 200 bucks and swap alot fo stuff over. you can even get gas powered fridges!

No A/C in this one. Gonna have a small slider window in the door and one on the opposite side for venting. I'm heading down to Asheville N.C. this weekend to meet up with a guy that salvages old campers, so gonna pick up windows for this camper and probably some extras for future projects.

nothing like that fresh wood and glue!!!! whats the plans for color? paint or stain on the insides? paint would be easy.   ive stained some treated lumber before with a real dark cherry and it came out great.
