Ya gotta love the CC Silverback

Welcome to the forum. Which floorplan are you getting?

We are getting the 29RE. It was a choice between this and Jayco, but we liked the Silverback better.

Oakman, do y'all have one air unit or two? Have seen some comments that say a second one is necessary for the bedroom. We are in the humid south. The dealer wants $1,000 to add another one.

I have two on mine. It can get quite hot and humid in MO. Our last trailer had two slideouts and was just 32 feet long, the single 15k A/C was just barely adequate.

The bedroom A/C can be noisy so at night when the sun goes down we turn off the bedroom unit and the main unit can keep the trailer cool at night.

That 29RE is an awesome floorplan. When the slides are open, the cathedral ceilings and no center island make the main living room look HUGE compared to other trailers that length.

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 here’s 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.
