Thanks guys for the info. I work in the heat all day so when we are traveling I want to be cool. Guess I'll just have to spend 3k more to get down in the 70s.

Heat blockers

Aim for big btu's because adding 8k btu's did not produce a large differential in temperature... For me in southwest. Aim higher than me to stay cool.

Silver - How did you attach a shade to the shower dome inside. I find a lot of heat coming in that dome, especially when parked in the sun. I'd like to put some insulation material, but the sides of the dome slope and nothing there to hold it in.

As well as this I also painted the top of the AC and vent covers and shower skylight white. This will also help.

I believe this is what Silver said. I have heard of people painting the outside of the skylight white. It makes since and there is a lot of heat coming in from it.
