There's usually a sticker on the side of the AC unit that will say how many watts it is. I used a 5050 BTU window in my bus & ran it off a Honda EU2000 (2,000 watts) and it ran it fine. I was also running a mini fridge and some misc lights and whatnot.
It was a hot summer day (probably 85-90) and the AC had a hard time cooling off the bus, maybe a pair of these A/Cs or a larger one would work better.
