Awesome Lance Truck Camper Set-Up

This awesome rig rolled through the other day! I believe it was a Lance 1181 on a Chevrolet 5500 Kodiak!

How do keep the heat load of the dark exterior from overpowering the climate control? In large rigs, they have to use multiple oversized cooling units to compensate for their selection of darker colors.

I would not want that dark color in Arizona, Texas or Florida.

Other than that, it is a super good looking rig.

What does something like that weigh? I would guess 5,500lbs or so. That is a semi-educated guess as I was just looking a truck campers and the biggest I saw was around that.
