Are you saying there is no existing vent of any kind in the bedroom?

What model unit do you have? I know it's in your profile, but it's nice to put it in your sig or the post so everyone will know what we're dealing with.

Having said that. Get a good ultrasonic stud finder and you may be surprised to find the framework already there. Then it would be just the matter of cutting the ceiling and the roof and installing the unit.

Following this

I am looking to install a second A/C in the front bedroom. Mine has no vent as well, just ceiling.

There are larger models in the Wildwood line that have the same dimensions, except longer length and a front A/C comes with those.

Try looking at the trailers in your line and see if they have the front A/C from the factory.

There are videos on youtube showing installation of A/C where no hole existed. Looks like some wood bracing is required to create a box between the horizontal roof beams. Other than that, seems straight forward.

With just a fan, you could probably just tie into 12v from the ceiling light.

I would need to run a dedicated separate 20 amp service to an extra A/C as my camper is only 30 amp.
