2nd AC needed on Cougar 26RBS?

New to forum and I have searched but have not found any specifics to this floor plan. Interested in a 26RBS and have found one but it has one AC unit. Any feedback on performance with one AC? Like at 100 degrees?

Obviously 2 is better but right now things are hard to get.

Thanks in advance for any feedback on the 26RBS or similar.

If you plan on camping in Texas (assume you are a Texan by the username you used) and assuming you refer to a Cougar that is 30' long, you need to make sure you have 2 A/C units for camping in triple digit temps. If it only has one, which will not get the job done in the summer, see if the camper is 50A or 30A service. If 50A, likely has the wiring and bracing in the bedroom for a 2nd A/C. Don't be shy about getting the VIN and calling Keystone to confirm. They will have to build info to tell you if it s wired/braced for that A/C you need. In my old camper we use a 14K btu portable in conjunction with the 15K btu roof top A/C and it is comfortable. Before we used the portable, couldn't get temps much under 80F.

From what I read that unit is wired for 50A and prepped for the 2nd AC. With that closed door to the bedroom on the end I figure the center AC is going to have a very hard time keeping you cool in 100+ temps.

If you want it I would get it with the understanding the 2nd AC is installed. Things are hard to get but not impossible. A front 13.5 up front would be fine.

I believe this is a bumper pull so I think a standard height A/C would be less expensive and no higher than the rear A/C. Both Dometic and Coleman make low profile units but these tend to be quite a bit more expensive. Wish my camper had been set up 50A and wired/braced.

We have two on our 27SAB.

Wouldn’t be without two in the Florida sun.
