The Best And Easiest To Install RV Camper Trailer Rooftop AC Air Conditioner
Getting the Best Deal On the Best RV AC Unit
The rooftop air conditioner in your motor home or camper trailer is one of the most necessary items in your RV. Since the majority of owners use their campers in the summer season, keeping the rooftop unit in tip top working order is a must.
Even assuming you have maintained and repaired your RV AC unit for several years, there comes a time when replacing it is unavoidable.

The Rooftop RV AC unit pictured in the installation is a Coleman 8333 13.5 BTU air conditioner. This model is perhaps the most popular unit for most applications. It comes complete with everything needed including the ceiling assembly.
Every one of these units I am aware of being ordered through the ads on this page was shipped in less than 3 days and arrived in less than a week. My personal favorite of all rooftop AC’s.
Coleman units are now more energy efficient than ever, allowing the use of a bigger unit because of the lesser electrical amperage once needed to run the older AC units.
The Coleman 8335 Mach 15 air conditioner, with its 15,000 BTU cooling performance, is just such a model. This rooftop unit will cool many size RVs whether camper trailer or motorhome. A great unit for big rigs! It's better to have to large a unit than to overwork a smaller one trying to cool a large camper on those hot summer days.
