That is a pretty interesting option. According to their estimations 5,000 BTU should service a 10'x16' room, which is bigger than my bus will be. I could install this in the bulkhead over the emergency door.

If you're installing anything, just install a normal window unit. The biggest benefit of something like this is its portability. Put it in the window when you want it, take it out when you don't.

A big consideration, too, is size. I can install this up above the emergency door, whereas I don't think I'd be able to do the same with a standard window unit (though I'll admit, I haven't measured for that).

I can't confirm for yours, but we had initially thought of putting one above the emergency door in our short chevy, but decided against it since it will be by the bed. If it look similar to mine, you would have about 3' x 2' to work with without issue. The AC we almost got for free was a big 13,500 btu unit, and it was 26.5" x 18". I would assume your is similar, so you'd have plenty of space for a large unit back there.

You didn't miss it, it wasn't on the Noria website, surprisingly.

Now under FAQ:

Can Noria run on batteries or solar power?

Noria is a 480 W, 110-120 V AC appliance. It can be powered by an appropriately sized solar and/or energy storage system with an inverter and appropriate electronics. Please contact us at contact@noriahome.com if you require further details.

This makes more sense but contradicts what it said on the front page.
I'm liking this as an option but would obviously only work for the smallest of buses.

I put this up for discussion a few years ago --

For buses with TWO roof E-hatches, install a shrouded radiator fan (reversible) on the forward hatch. These fans REALLY move the air if the rear hatch is cracked.
