AC was an option on the 15, just as it is on current models. They also had an "AC ready" option which I believe consisted of some roof reinforcement and prewiring. Not sure how you'd determine whether or not yours has that, but Escape should know. The roof mounted AC is heavy, so the roof needs to have the reinforcement either when it's built, or you have the much more difficult task of retrofitting it after the fact.
If it were me, I'd strongly consider a window mounted AC unit you can simply put in place using the emergency exit window once you set up camp. They're cheap, pretty easy to haul, they cool well (especially for the small interior of a 15) and they are far quieter than the roaring roof mounted Dometic Penguin II that we have. I would think a 5K to 6K BTU unit would work fine.
