This Resourceful Camper Added Air Conditioning To His Family’s Pop Up Trailer

Pop up campers are some of the least expensive RVs on the market. They’re highly regarded for short trips and weekend excursions. One downside to camping in a pop up trailer might be that they often lack an air conditioning unit.

What to do? Add a cheap window-mounted unit yourself!

We got this pop up cheap. It is in almost perfect condition inside, but no air. I almost passed it up. It was expensive to have rooftop installed. We came up with this idea , and it’s perfect.

Total cost? $150.

With an air conditioner of that size cooling just a single pop up camper, you can bet they have no trouble staying comfortable on even the hottest of days.
