I don’t, so the answer is no and can’t talk about brands.

However, when we purchased out tent, a Southern Cross four peg with centre pole, it was because it allowed good cross ventilation.

Whenever we use it, or our TVAN, we look at the environment to work out where it might be best situated to ensure a ‘good comfort level’ with regards to temperature.

And there are times, not too many, where the temperature gives us some discomfort but never to the point where we considered an air conditioner is needed.

So whilst I can’t give any recommendation on portable air conditioning for a tent, I’d encourage you to look at other factors you can influence. After all, how often would you need to use it and it adds another complexity when it comes to power.

Camping for us is about reducing complexity.

But good luck in your search...

And perhaps there’ll come a time that me and Mrs Landy are wishing we had that air conditioner!

I don’t know of one either but if you find one do you have a power source to run it?

Like Baz said, tent selection has a lot to do with it, we have camped in 50 plus degrees and you can be comfortable if it is not stuffy
A mozzey dome tent is a good thing to carry for hot nights or some use those little battery fans to create some airflow
