I just don't like A/C. We spend 3 months each year down in the CA/AZ deserts with temps reaching 40C and higher and we used the A/C on our 2008 5.0 precisely twice - when there was high heat and a sandstorm and Leslie insisted on cooking inside!
We opted for two Maxx fans, the hatch, and a vent plus solar this time instead.
And I have a special word for people who run generators in campgrounds just so they can run A/C or power numerous gadgets - Hookups
