Does the AC Actually Work in a Popup Camper? Essential Guide

A common question among popup camper enthusiasts is whether air conditioning units work effectively in these mobile havens. As summer camping trips become increasingly popular, it is crucial to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience while spending time outdoors. In this article, we will explore the functionality of air conditioning in a popup camper and discuss factors that may influence its performance.

An a/c unit will cool a popup camper and help maintain a comfortable temperature, but they will run a lot due to the lack of insulation. Weather, shade, insulation, how much canvas is on your popup, and the type of a/c unit will dictate how effective your a/c unit will be at cooling your camper.

Understanding these factors and considering practical solutions will help campers make informed decisions about integrating air conditioning effectively within their popup campers. Stay tuned as we delve further into the functionalities and benefits of incorporating air conditioners in popup campers to guarantee cool, relaxing vacations for all.

Do A/C Units Actually Keep Popup Campers Cool?

The ac actually works in Popup Campers

AC units in popup campers can work well, but their effectiveness may vary depending on various factors such as the size of the camper, insulation, ambient temperature, and the AC unit’s capacity. Here are some considerations:

  1. Cooling Capacity: The cooling capacity of the AC unit should match the size of the popup camper. If the AC unit is undersized for the camper, it may struggle to cool the space adequately. It’s important to choose an AC unit with an appropriate cooling capacity for optimal performance.
  2. Insulation: Proper insulation plays a crucial role in maintaining the cooling efficiency of the AC unit. Well-insulated popup campers can help retain the cool air generated by the AC unit, making it more effective in hot weather conditions.
  3. Ambient Temperature: AC units have limitations in extremely hot and humid conditions. If the ambient temperature is excessively high, the AC unit may have to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature inside the camper. In such cases, the cooling performance may be affected.
  4. Power Source: Popup campers typically have limited power resources, and AC units require a significant amount of electricity to operate. It’s essential to ensure that the camper has an adequate power supply, such as a reliable electrical hookup or a generator, to power the AC unit effectively.
  5. Maintenance: Regular maintenance, such as cleaning the filters, checking the refrigerant levels, and ensuring proper airflow, is crucial for the efficient functioning of the AC unit. Neglected maintenance can lead to reduced cooling performance.

A/C units are inefficient in Popup Campers

If you are used to the way the a/c works in your house or have been in a hard sided camper, the a/c in a popup will be less cold and less efficient.

If you do have a popup camper with an a/c unit you already know that it probably runs most of the time, this is due to the poor insulation that pop-up campers have as much of the unit is canvas.

The a/c unit on popup campers is meant to keep the area cool and take the edge off of a hot day.

For example, it it is 88 degrees out, a a/c unit on a popup camper may cool the unit down to 77 degrees, but once you turn the unit off you will quickly go back up to 88 degrees in the camper. You will find that you will be running your cooling 100% of the time to keep it cool.

Canvas and vinyl for windows is fairly breathable and won’t retain the cool temperatures and will allow the heat to sneak in your camper.

If you are considering adding a/c to your camper, keep in mind it won’t really hold temperature, but will constantly be on. But, this may be OK for you as if it does take the heat down a bit then you are achieving your goal of being cooler.

How to Maximize A/C in Your Popup Camper

Keeping the air conditioning at its peak performance in a popup camper is crucial for maintaining a comfortable temperature during your camping trip. Here are a few tips to ensure that your A/C unit is functioning efficiently:

  1. Ensure Proper Intake Ventilation: Attach an extra vent to the intake side of the A/C unit to ensure proper air circulation. This will prevent the unit from recirculating warm air inside the camper, leading to better cooling efficiency.
  2. Seal the Camper: Make sure that all windows, doors, and openings are tightly sealed to avoid cool air from escaping and warm air from entering. Use weatherstripping to seal any gaps between the camper and the windows or doors. Close any folds or pop up areas if you can. A smaller space will be easier to keep cool.
  3. Insulate the Camper: Adding insulation material such as reflective bubble wrap or foam insulation can help keep the inside of the camper cooler. Cover the windows, walls, and the roof to minimize heat transfer through these surfaces. Install reflective insulation over pop up canvas areas. This will provide added insulation and prevent heat from entering the thin canvas material of the popouts.
  4. Use Energy-Efficient Lighting: Replace traditional incandescent light bulbs with energy-efficient LED bulbs to reduce the heat output generated by illumination. LED bulbs emit less heat and consume less power, which helps to keep the camper cooler.
  5. Park Strategically: Select a camping site that offers ample shade during the hottest parts of the day. Parking under trees or using an awning can significantly reduce the amount of heat entering your camper, lessening the demand on your A/C unit.
  6. Use Ventilation Fans: Installing ventilation fans can improve air circulation within the camper, helping to distribute cool air evenly and prevent any hot spots from forming.
  7. If your air conditioner has a filter: Clean it regularly. This will ensure that your a/c unit is running as efficiently as possible.
  8. Adjust your system’s ducts: To make sure the maximum amount of cool air is flowing out to the areas you need it.

By following these tips, you can ensure that the A/C in your popup camper performs at its best, providing a comfortable and enjoyable camping experience.

Types of Air Conditioning Units in Popup Campers

When deciding the best way to cool your popup camper, it’s essential to know the advantages and disadvantages of each approach. Knowing your options can save you money and ensure the highest level of comfort for you and your camping companions. The four cooling methods we will look at today are a wall mount air conditioner, a roof mount air conditioner, a portable household air conditioner, and a household fan.

Wall Mount A/C

A wall mount a/c like this one(I would buy one without digital controls as it is just something else to go wrong) is an air conditioning unit that you can mount into the wall or window of your camper. You can either install the unit into a window, or a hole that has been cut into the wall of your camper. This can be a cost-effective and efficient option for cooling your camper. Wall mount a/c units can be found from the factory on some units, or installed by the end user. A benefit is that these are self contained and simply require to be plugged in.


  • A wall mount air conditioner has the benefit of being very easy to install. You can install it yourself, which saves money on installation fees.
  • The system itself is often cheaper than a roof mount air conditioning system, which makes it an affordable option for cooling your camper.
  • Since wall mount a/c units often fit in a hole or window within a wall of the camper, the noisier elements of the system will be outside of the vehicle. If you’re worried about your air conditioner making noise, this method will help keep the noise to a minimum.
  • This system will typically be more powerful than a portable a/c unit or a fan, so it’s a good option in between these and the stronger roof mount a/c units.


  • A wall mount a/c is not as powerful as a roof mount air conditioning unit. If you need a stronger a/c, it might be best to consider a rooftop model.
  • Wall mount a/c’s are not ducted so will only work in the area it is installed in.
  • If you install the unit into a window, you will have to remove and store it for travel, which some may consider inconvenient compared to other methods.
  • Won’t run on battery.

Roof Mount A/C

A roof mount air conditioner system is a large box unit that you mount to the top of your popup camper. This is the most powerful method of cooling your camper, and for this reason, it is one of the most popular options. Typically these come preinstalled from the factory, but can be simple to install as they are fairly self contained. To install yourself, you would need to mount to the roof, run power, and thermostat wires.


  • Due to its higher btu output, a roof mount air conditioner will be able to keep your camper cool even on a summer’s day or in a hotter climate. If you enjoy using your camper in these conditions, this system is your best bet for staying cool in your camper.
  • Unlike many window mounted a/c units, a rooftop a/c will not need to be removed for travel. This makes this system one of the most convenient options as well.
  • Due to its location outside of the camper, this system may be one of the quietest options. If you are a light sleeper, noise is important to consider when making an a/c purchase.
  • These can be ducted to get into other areas of the camper for better cooling.


  • Roof mount a/c units are the most expensive option for cooling your popup camper. It might be worth exploring other options before investing in this method unless it comes preinstalled form the factory.
  • This is also the most challenging system to install. You will likely need to pay an installation fee, and any repairs can be costly as well.
  • These units will use more power than other methods. The energy required is an extra expense to consider when making this decision. You will need to make sure you have a circuit for it in your power distribution pannel prior to install.
  • Won’t run on battery.

Portable Household A/C

A portable air conditioner is a convenient way to keep your camper comfortable on a summer’s day. The unit is a machine, usually on wheels, that you can place almost anywhere throughout your camper. It will often have a built-in fan to keep the cold air circulating throughout the camper.


  • Due to this system’s mobility, it can be placed almost anywhere you need to keep cool. If you only need to cool one particular part of your camper, this can be a simple and energy-efficient way of doing so.
  • When not using your camper you can move this to your house or a shed and use it for multiple rooms if you would like.
  • This system is easy to use and will not require any complicated assembly or costly maintenance and repairs. This is truly plug and play.
  • Newer technology allows these machines to be programmable, and they often come with a remote control for convenient use.


  • You will need to place the a/c relatively close to a window to allow the exhaust pipe to drain outside of the camper.
  • Unlike the other a/c units, this one will take up space on the floor of your camper. This can be inconvenient for two reasons. One, because floor space is limited in a popup camper to begin with, and two, because cool air tends to stay low to the ground. A system located on the roof or an elevated location will be more likely to cool the entire camper effectively.
  • Since the entire unit will sit inside your camper, this may be one of the noisier options for cooling the vehicle.
  • As a popup camper folds down, this will need to be stored in a vehicle or sideways (this may damage the unit) for driving.
  • Won’t run on battery.

Pop-Up Camper-Specific Concerns When Installing a/c Yourself

Weight and Roof Support

One key consideration when selecting an A/C type for a pop-up camper is weight. Specific A/C units can be relatively heavy, surpassing the weight limitations of some camper roofs. Popular options like portable A/C units and built-in floor-standing units are usually lighter, making them suitable for lightweight campers without compromising roof support.

On the other hand, rooftop A/C units offer an efficient cooling solution that frees up floor space within the camper. These units are designed to be aerodynamic, reducing wind resistance as the camper is towed. However, they can be more challenging to install, especially on older pop-up camper models, as they require sufficient roof support and added reinforcement.

In conclusion, when deciding which A/C type to use for a pop-up camper, campers should consider factors like portability, heating and cooling options, and weight, keeping in mind the unique advantages and disadvantages of each option. Ultimately, the choice will depend on individual needs, preferences, and the specific characteristics of the camper being used.

Insulation and Shade

Insulation and shade are also crucial in maintaining a comfortable temperature inside a popup camper. To achieve this, try to park the camper in a shaded area, preferably under trees or an awning. This will protect it from direct sunlight, which can cause the interior to heat up rapidly. Additionally, you can use reflective window covers or shades to further decrease heat absorption.

For better insulation, it may be beneficial to look into popup camper models that feature insulated walls or ceilings. Proper insulation can help counteract temperature fluctuations and make your camper more energy-efficient by decreasing the need to use a heater or an air-conditioning unit.

While heaters may not come equipped in many popup campers, opting for a portable propane or electric heater can be an excellent solution during colder weather. These heaters should be used with caution and always ensure proper ventilation to prevent the build-up of harmful gases, such as carbon monoxide.

Overall, by utilizing fans, natural ventilation, insulation, and shade, popup camper owners can maintain their desired sleep environment without depending solely on air-conditioning or heating units. This approach is not only eco-friendly but can also reduce energy consumption and costs.

Compatibility with Different Camper Styles

Pop-up campers, also known as tent trailers, are a popular type of recreational vehicle (RV) that feature collapsible canvas or fabric walls. They provide a lightweight and affordable alternative to full-sized campers. However, not all pop-up campers are built the same, and the presence and effectiveness of an AC unit can vary depending on factors such as the material and construction.

In general, pop-up campers with solid walls may retain warm air better than those with primarily canvas walls. Canvas wall campers, while more susceptible to heat loss, generally have lower roof support weight capacity, which may be unable to accommodate a traditional roof-mounted AC unit. As a result, owners of canvas wall campers may need to explore alternative cooling solutions like portable or window-mounted air conditioning units.

How to Manage Water Runoff

Pop-up campers may come equipped with an AC unit, but managing water runoff is a concern to keep in mind. The condensed water produced by the AC unit during operation has to go somewhere, and if not properly managed, it can lead to damp conditions in the camper, thus compromising the integrity of the canvas or fabric walls.

A proper drainage system can prevent water runoff issues, and there are several ways to achieve this in pop-up campers. One solution is installing an AC unit with a built-in drain pan where the condensate water gets collected and redirected away from the camper. Another option is to use a hose that guides the water away from the camper’s interior, preventing dampness and potential damage to the fabric.


Along with temperature control, managing humidity inside a pop-up camper can be a challenge. High humidity levels can lead to condensation on the canvas walls, which can contribute to mold and mildew growth and a less comfortable camping experience. Due to their design, pop-up campers may not be as airtight as their hard-sided counterparts, which can make it tricky to maintain ideal humidity levels.

An AC unit with built-in dehumidification functionality can help reduce indoor humidity in pop-up campers. Other methods to manage humidity include leaving windows or vents slightly open during the day and using a separate portable dehumidifier inside the camper.

Power Requirements (Wiring, Generator, Amps)

Powering an A/C unit in a pop-up camper involves understanding the A/C unit’s power requirements and ensuring the camper’s electrical system is up to the task. This typically means reviewing the unit’s power consumption in watts, amps, and voltage requirements.

Depending on the unit’s power requirements and the camper’s existing electrical system, upgrading the wiring and circuitry might be necessary if it didn’t come with the A/C from the factory. Additionally, running an A/C unit on a generator is a common option, but it’s essential to ensure the generator produces sufficient power to support the A/C – this may require calculating the generator’s output and considering a higher capacity model.

Maintenance and Repair

Routine maintenance of an A/C unit in a pop-up camper should not be overlooked, as it prolongs the unit’s lifespan and ensures efficient functioning. Common maintenance tasks include:

  • Cleaning or replacing air filters
  • Inspecting and cleaning the evaporator and condenser coils
  • Checking the refrigerant levels and addressing any leaks

If issues arise beyond regular maintenance, such as electrical or mechanical problems, seeking professional help is recommended.

Performance Considerations for Adding A/C Units in Popup Campers

Cooling Capacity (BTU)

When selecting an AC unit for a popup camper, it’s essential to consider the cooling capacity, which is measured in British Thermal Units (BTUs). The higher the BTUs, the more powerful the cooling system will be. For a popup camper, an AC unit with a minimum of 5,000 BTUs is generally recommended to maintain a comfortable temperature during summer months. Keep in mind that larger campers may require a unit with more BTUs for adequate cooling.

Efficiency and Energy Consumption

Another critical factor to consider is the AC unit’s efficiency and energy consumption. A more efficient unit will consume less energy, helping to reduce overall costs while keeping the camper cool. Look for a model with a high Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating, which will indicate better efficiency levels.

  • High EER (above 10) or SEER (above 14) ratings denote excellent performance.
  • Moderate EER (7-10) or SEER (11-14) ratings indicate average performance.
  • Low EER (below 7) or SEER (below 11) ratings suggest poor performance.

Noise Level

Noise levels are another important consideration for the comfort of campers. A quiet AC unit, typically measuring between 50-60 decibels, will not disturb sleep or conversations. While shopping for an a/c unit, evaluate the noise output, and consider options with a quiet or “whisper” mode for more peaceful operation.

Temperature Control

The ability to control the camper’s temperature is crucial for a comfortable environment. An AC unit with adjustable settings, such as fan speed and cooling levels, will provide greater flexibility in achieving the desired level of comfort. Additionally, a thermostat function can help maintain consistent temperatures by automatically adjusting the cooling output based on the camper’s internal temperature. This feature will not only improve camper comfort but also contribute to the AC unit’s overall efficiency.

How to Power an A/C Unit on Your Pop-Up Camper

There are several ways to power the air conditioning unit in a pop-up camper. To ensure efficiency and reliability, it’s essential to select the method that best suits your needs. In this section, we’ll discuss four common power sources: generator, solar, batteries, and RV park power.

Generator: A portable generator is a popular option for powering an A/C unit in a pop-up camper. A generator can provide the necessary electricity to run not only the air conditioner but also other appliances. It’s essential to choose a generator with sufficient wattage to power the A/C unit you intend to use, which usually requires around 2,000 to 3,000 watts for most units. Make sure to refuel the generator appropriately and exercise proper safety measures when operating it.

Connected to RV Park Power: When camping at an RV park, you may have access to electric hookups, allowing you to power your A/C unit using the park’s provided electricity. Before connecting to the RV park’s power supply, it’s critical to ensure the site offers the correct voltage and amperage required for your A/C unit. Using a surge protector and power management system can help protect your air conditioner and other electric appliances from potential damage.

Battery or Solar will not power your A/C unit for long, so it really isn’t an option unless you just need a quick burst of cool air.

In summary, powering your pop-up camper’s A/C unit depends on the availability and reliability of resources like generators and RV park connections. Evaluating your specific needs and preferences can help you choose the most appropriate method for your pop-up camper experience.
