We camped over the 4th in our HTT and the AC didn't kick off very often but it kept it plenty cool. We too use fans to move the cool air around, especially in the bunk ends.

We often boondock, where A/C isn't a viable option (unless you want to run a generator continually), so this is something that I may try...
We wrapped cardboard with foil and taped them inside across the vents. It isn't pretty, but it sure helps in this heat!

Yeah, we already have all the windows and "sky lights" covered in the foily bubble wrap type stuff. We're bringing the generator just in case. And I'm praying for some sort of weather miracle! Please, God, let the weather cooperate!!!
