I think that most put it in the rear of the storage area, and arrange the rest of the storage to accommodate. Putting it in the rear will lessen the tongue weight, in your case not a real big issue, but a good balanced trailer will also give best economy while pulling also.
We have a 5000 btu that we got at Wall Mart, It fits just right on top of the axle. He have room for a small piece of foam on top and bottom. This works out very well with the weight.ANY IDEAS on how to carry the AC unit on an Apsen camper. I would like to but it in a try on the trailer tounge between the camper and the cooler. I ride a trike, so the tounge weight should not cause a problem.
ANY IDEAS??? BIG THANKS:bow:
This is the second post I have read where people are hauling their AC units on top of a piece of foam. I was just going to set mine on the bottom of my roll a home cargo area floor. What is the reason for placing it on foam? Are they prone to damage from road vibrations?
We didn't want to install the factory AC duct in the tent. Instead we bought a "nylon rain fly" at a camping store that was large enough to cover the entire door area. DW sewed velcro to match the factory velcro around the door, the put the duct into the rain fly. We also installed a full height zipper to allow access into the left side of the door while the AC is directed into the right side.Haven't figured How to modify canvass to accommodate ac unit, but try to hold tongue weight 41-45#s with my Ambassador. The ac unit will probly sit over axle during transport. Ride 2 wheels solo.
