Got premium "buddy sites" at the KOA. Neither of us have been there so it was all sort of a guess.

I became intrigued with this idea, and have a couple other spaces where an occasional a/c unit might be handy. Target had a Haier unit that would show up on sale. In store price right now is 293, online is 252 plus 15% off if you pick it up at your local target! I also have a Target Debit card that's good for 5% off any purchases… I usually avoid such things but since (a) we shop there a lot and (b) it's cheaper than cash, I use it. Got the unit down to $222 with tax and I can pick it up today (I assume they went and got one of the $292 models off the shelf.)

I don't anticipate carrying this unless I know we're going to be staying somewhere hot, but I'll have it if I want it. Also finally went to the bus barn and did a practice install of the solar screen I bought from Phil57.

Anyway, wanted to pass this pricing along. Won't get to try the unit until later this week
