We use our motorhome to commute to and from Spain, we dont have cab aircon so I have decided to fit a roof mounted aircon unit with DC kit so that it can be used on the move. I am concerned about two things.

Firstly, noise, I would like any advice people have from experience about which manufacturers make the quitest units.

Secondly, Is there a marked effect on vehicle handeling?

Auto sleeper have recommended that any roof mounted unit should be mounted in-between the wardrobe and near side cupboards.

As always any advice or past experience greatly welcomed. Does anyone have a roof mounted unit already fitted to a Nuevo-ES.?
Thanks in advance

Hi Flynn
I maybe not much of a help to you, however have you thought about retro fitting a A/C unit onto your engine?
I have seen 240 volt A/C hab units fitted to Marquis A/S coachbuilts, but no 12 volt units.
Just had a look on the web, Dometic have a range of units to fit motorhomes, Dometic CA 1000,B1600plus, B2200, it looks like they have fitting kits for 12 volts.
DC Airco have a unit, but its big, DC9000 12/24 volt.
Some of the forum members may be able to provide better technical advice than I can.

HI,

Thanks for your comment, after fully exploring roof top mounted units with 12v inverter and labour to fit costs were becoming prohibitive, £2700+, so I have now decided to go back to my original plan to have engine driven aircon. I thing I managed to track down the main companies that retrofit aircon. Quoutes to do the work ranged from £1550 to £2500 plus VAT. Needless to say I have selected the lowest quote which was from a company called Alpinair. Work is due to be done shortly so I will post some further feed back then.

Aircon for Autosleeper Nuevo ES Empty Further update

Aircon now fitted, fully integrated with normal heating controls, given the current weather can't verify how efficient it is.

They needed the Motorhome for about 4 days and for scheduling purposes needed about two weeks notice for booking.


Friendly specialist company.

Hi Flynn
What a time of the year to get aircon fitted, we have had 8ins of snow and minus 6. Not as bad as last year. You will feel the benefits later when the weather gets hot, your mpg will reduce abit.
do you have a wee chill locker on the passenger side, at the front, very handy for chilled drinks.

take care in the snow. Boaby
