We have an option to buy a Grand Design Reflection 295RL with or without a 2nd AC in the front bedroom for the same price.

We often camp without electricity and were originally thinking that the vent in the bedroom plus the cross ventilation with two windows will be great when we are not hooked up. I am concerned that losing the vent in the bedroom will reduce our circulation too much.

However, sometimes we do have electricity and now I am concerned that the bedroom will be warm with only one AC in the main living space.

Anybody have any thoughts on what they would do in this situation with the same camping style?

We have 2 AC units and use the bedroom AC right up to bed time and then switch to a free standing fan. The AC in the bedroom, even on low fan, is very loud for sleeping. Cooling the space down and then having the air movement of the free standing fan works well for us while camping in 80 - 90 degree temps.

Same price, no question. Get the a/c and a 12 volt shelf fan.

Yes, both units are wired for 50 amp. The one without 2nd AC is pre-wired etc. for 2nd AC.

As for price, probably the same price. We got show pricing plus a little sweetener but the one at the show did not have 2nd unit. I might be able to get a discount if I point out the error and go without 2nd unit.

For the same price it really is a no-brainer. You may only need it occasionally but much better to have it and not need than to be miserable on those days/nights when you really need it but don't have it.
