My understanding is the roof won't support an AC unit.

Thanks for the response. I was told that same thing by the Camping World service rep. I am leaving on a on month trip in just over a week so I will be taking the trailer back to Camping World and several other rv dealers in my area when I return and see if any of them can figure out a solution or a way to add support to the roof structure to cure this problem. I am sure that won't be cheap. Will update with a post if a solution is found.

We've found the 5000BTU unit, when properly ducted in the back, can cool the 16' (we're #407) with the help of a fan to circulate the air. Still, the cooling is merely "okay."

The better option is install an 8000BTU unit in the same location. Here's the one many have used:

Here's the fan we use:
