Domestic reverse cycle a/c system

hi from down under. bought a 3.5kw Fujitsu reverse cycle a/c system today to put in out 32bhds.
the roof top unit just doesn't cut the mustard in the hot days down here, so we've decided to go this way. i'll be mounting the head on the rear wall and building a rubber mounted bracket off the rear bumper for the compressor unit.
over time I will build a fibreglass scoop/duct that will direct all the air from the head to the inbuilt roof channelled ducting system already there.

has anyone else used a domestic a/c unit in their rig?

I know they are not made for the viabrations of caravans (trailers, 5th wheelers etc...) but they are becoming very popular down here now for such RV's.

they are heaps cheaper than RV rooftop style systems and work many times better in extreme weather situations.

the compressor unit needs to be rubber mounted for the longevity of the unit.

just hope I get it all installed before the end of summer!
