The front corner shows what looks like a vent without an A/C unit... So are you saying don't get it?
Or is that the bathroom? [emoticon] I assume the ladder is on the rear but maybe that is the front of a TH?

After a week of 100+ temps at a VA campground 2 summers ago I added a second air. Took forever to cool the 5er down when we got there and was slightly miserable the whole time. Don't leave home without it.
Side note. Have your buddy put the front end loader in the shade before lifting you and the new AC to the roof. Those buckets get hot [emoticon].

I wouldn't buy any rig 27 foot or over without a second AC. The RV industry does have a standard for AC and it's 27 foot and over. You'll be glad you got it. There's a lot on this forum who have traded their one AC rig for that very reason.

My new 5er has 2 AC's. Cant wait to try it out in 100+ degree weather. With one AC your lucky if you can get a 12 deg difference i.E. 110 outside 98 inside which sucks. Now if you can park in the shade you might get 18 deg diff

What industry standard are you referring too? Never heard or seen anothing like that.
Lots of people on this forum have traded their rigs in that reason? Never read one single post about how someone traded their rig in just because it didn't have a 2nd AC.

Get it with the factory installed 2nd AC with thermostat control. My dealership talked me into installing the AC after delivery which in retrospect was a mistake.
