Ironically, the best RV's for the cold are also the best for the heat. Check out 4 season rated RV's, a good place to start is Arctic Fox.

I'm thinking something like this would work well. At least untill it melted.

Anything big enough to carry 3 A/Cs. Have lived and RVed the desert south west and traveled to and from deep east Texas since '88. Had 3 RVs with one A/C and two with two units. Here in Vegas we are actually beginning to see some few high end units with 3 to 4 A/C units.

Generally class B and C's are not that well insulated. Lots of heat gain due to the large glass areas and on a C the back wall is pretty thin.

If you are really after a smaller RV with goof insulation, look at the Arctic Fox line of trailers by Northwood.
