    Does anyone have any experience of the "Cool my Camper" air con unit, the one that can be fixed to a window?? Do they work ie are they effective.

    Thanks in advance.:Cool:

    i dont doubt they do work but at 350watts (1.52amps @230vac) i cant see it being very efficient.

    The business end (compressor) hangs outside your window which MAY mean the window cant be fully secured and the unit is vulnerable to theft or vandalism.

    £540 is a lot of money to find the unit is crap

    From the website it is a proper air con system. Might be noisy but otherwise if you want air con it looks a cheaper alternative. However, it looks bulky so you need space to stow it. Interesting product on the face of it so thanks for posting. http://www.coolmycamper.com/default.htm

    ac

    We have a "Cool my Camper ac" (as does my brother) used in Salou June/July 2013 at the La Siesta site,
    Agree it is quite bulky but it is easy to store under our front lounge seats. I found it very easy to mount on the window frame and was very efficient, cooled the van down no problem. in the evening/overnight used the timer to switch it on/off to keep us cool when in bed.
    I did manage to close the windows on to the first catch and having made friends with our neighbours felt it safe enough to be able to leave the van, also kept our dog cool too.
    When we purchased them I managed to get a deal on them which worked out at £425 each !! bonus is that unlike roof mount ones it can be transferred to another van plus it can be used at home !!
    More than a few "visitors" to our van wished that they had one when the temperatures hit 37c !! :Cool::Cool:

    I have one, it is effective but not really big enough for our current vehicle
    I could be persuaded to part with it, it has only been used in anger once.

    pm if you are interested.

    I had one running next to me on a site in France last year in a caravan window.
    The guy had x2 EHU running , one for the caravan one for the AC.
    It buzzed on and on all day and night:Angry:

    When they went out for the day I accidentally:Blush: pulled the AC plug off the EHU box, it would not run again unless it was reset inside .
    --I found peace.:thumb:

    We had two roof mounted in the RV and the cool air ducted to roof vents, all very posh.. but only ever ran it to test and keep the seals lubricated .. otherwise.. too noisy :Doh:

    they are very unsociable.. almost as bad as a genny.

    If the heat bothers you.. take time to acclimatize, .. or stay in the UK .
