Any trailer 30 ft and longer will need 2 a/c's south of Canada in my opinion during summertime. Remember that one a/c can't cool down from 100 to comfortable 72 - 75.

I have only one. I have never wished i had two. We have been to Florida and out west on the dessert. I guess it is all a matter of preference. But if your debating when ordering the silverback comes with the prep for the second a/c anyways. Do adding one later is easy and a little cheaper.

29RE here in Mi wished we had two last summer. It was either freeze out our son on the sofa or cook in the bedroom. I may still add another air unit to the bedroom.

Camper 1999, how do you like the Silverback? Have you had any issues with it as far as the quality and structure?

We keep going back and forth....get a new 5th wheel or bite the bullet and buy a motorhome. They are just so dang expensive and it's a lot cheaper to fix a 5th wheel.

If you only have one A/C hereís a little trick to help cool the bedroom area at night. Open the bedroom ceiling vent a couple of inches. Warm air rises and collects in the bedroom. By opening the bedroom vent the air circulates better drawing cool air up to the bedroom while pushing the warmer air out the vent.

I have tried that didn't work very well or as well as I would have liked. I saw where someone mounted a fan on the wall I feel that would move more air and make it more comfortable.

We picked up our 29RE last September and love it. One A/C only. We leave the AZ "dry heat" in June and try to "camp" where we need neither heater or air. Thats why they have wheels. The Rocky Mountain west is ideal for summer camping!

We are picking ours up tomorrow. Michigan weather said let it snow today so ended up having to snow blow out the driveway and part of the backyard so I can bring it home and park it. I hope the weather tomorrow is more cooperating than today was.
