Earthbound trailer air condioner

Hi folks, this summer I saw a earthbound tt, I talked with the owner just for few mins, I notice his a\c was wall mounted and was under the dinette table, not on the roof. does any one know anything about this type of a\c? , I would like to find more info, thinking of that style for my bus, I did lots of internet searches so far no luck, and earthbound is no longer around.
thank you

The units I have seen in use on the litewight tt's are just a small home window unit, 110 volt.

I have used a small window home unit AC in a TT before and it can work well if installed correctly. After all the over head AC found in most TT is really just a window unit modified to be mounted on the roof. That being said, I once had a TT with a window unit mounted underneath the dinette by a pervious owner. That didn't work very well at all. Cold air sinks. Hot air rises. The Window unit ;home installed; underneath the dinette couldn't push the cold air up high enough in the TT. I had to set a fan underneath the dinette blowing upward to give it some help. The factory may have taken this into account and have made it work but, I don't know.

from what I could find out, they didn't use that method to long, and started to use roof mount a\c,.
Ill just keep using my portable a\c as my front a/c, was just looking for something a little more neater,
thank you

Pretty late but the first Earthbounds had a heat pump. Didn't work very well and they replaced some of them with rooftop units.
