    Rough ball park figure I'd guess at around 2-3 grand.

    i last saw self fit air-con kits in the kit-car mags and the like, cost about a grand,

    there was a stand at motorhome shows a few years ago that offered a fitted price of cab air-con for about 1500 quid, (the proper job of an engine driven compressor etc, not just a roof top electric unit)

    and people have got the bits from a scrapped van and fitted it to their own vehicle, but it is a lot of money either route,

    if your traveling around europe a lot in summer, then it's worth it, but if in england, once this brief hot spell has gone, you'll soon think of better things to spend that kind of cash on.

    Hello ,

    It cost £2000 on my van and was fitted when the van was new I would not buy a campervan for continental touring without.

    Either way...Electric or engine-driven compressor unit....it will have an effect on your fuel economy....

    Definitely worthwhile on the continent as others have said.

    Not a cheap retrofit though.

    Take a look here for unit costs....

    These are 240 volt units....Trying to find 12v ones....It would take some inverter to power the 240 volts....

    Plus fitting of course
