I would like to install an AirConditioning unit into my Coromal 475 poptop. I am aware that a roof top unit is not appropriate given the somewhat weak roof system. I have seen the more conventional units, and a mate has one but is very dissappointed with the noise level. Another friend has one, and has found the positioning it critical. His " is better than none " in his words. I have seen other types displayed that have a number of individual small outlets that I assume are positioned around the van. Something like the face level outlets in the dash of our vehicles I assume.

Is there a "perfect" installation that someone has found ? IE, Minimal noise, Great performance etc etc . I realise that in a poptop this is a big ask, but I am looking for something that is better than what my friends and contacts seem to have.

Hoping someone can help, Barry.

G/day barry, I have a 16ft poptop with Heron 3 split system, works well and is quiet. Positioning is important. You possibly could mount a roof system if you placed 2 pieces of RHS externally from wall to wall to support weight.
I have seen new Jayco PTs with roof mounted systems, might pay to check out how they do it.

In 2005 we bought a reverse cycle split system from good guys for $500 for our 16ft jayco had the rear window removed & the head unit installed their the compressor mounted on the rear bar professionally fitted just over$500. Herron A/C about $2200 then, we leftPerth went to Darwin at home to Mackay best investment ever
