If you plan on spending summers in Florida, the second AC would be
a good option.

Get the second AC when you order the motor home. Save some money that way.

Get them have it ducted in now if you can. You will need and want the second AC unless you want to sweat.

Especially if you leave pets in your rig while absent, a second A/C would be good protection for them.

We have a 24' Solera with the 15K and medium to dark full body paint, and removable insulation panels for windows and sky lights. Last summer in Arizona (we visited Yuma) we ended up going to Home Depot for a portable A/C which sits between the front seats and is ducted out the drivers door window as the best our single A/C could do was mid 90's. (And yes we had the roof air and duct work checked.)

Yes for 2 AC.

We have a new 2016 Flagstaff 8329 IKWS.

If you are going to be in a warm area it will make more more comfortable living and sleeping. 1 AC would not keep up.

We have 2 air conditioners in our Cardinal. I say get two if it is possible. No regrets. Too many benefits to explain in a sentence.

From a fellow Floridian.....don't even think about not getting the second unit. You'll only regret it later if you don't. Even if you like it warm I the RV, it's nice to have a backup if one unit goes down. We have the heat pump on our main unit, too, and it takes care of all our heating needs.

If camping during summer in FL sure! We are there Jan/Feb & Mar and do not need it. During summer here in NC we do not use the 5er much ~~ that is the time to get the boat on the Atlantic. I prefer FL in winter and other places during the months school is in session during spring and fall.
