PigPen and Chris are correct in suggesting you follow up with ALL your future posts on this thread. Old guys like me have a hard time following more than one thought at a time
Ok. I'll try my best

The current trend is to buy a mini-split system to air condition your bus. You will probably need to install insulation is you want to the AC to be effective.

how do you want to A/C? when parked and the engine off or when driving? the 2 are very distinctly different..

if you are plannin on super-insulating your bus and really working around getting rid of engine heat sources, then 2 mini splits can make you somewhat comfortable driving in hot weather in a full size bus.. thats assuming you have a way to run them when driving, ie a generator running..

being parked, 2 mini splits (24,000 BTU total) will keep you nice N cool as long as you have done some decent insulation in the walls and ceiling...

what is your plan of driving vs being parked? and how do ytou plan to power your bus when parked? generator? solar? plugged into shorepower outlet?

in my case i drive all the time so I have busses with regular road (engine driven) A/C.. basically like a car system only much larger.. and just a portable A/C that works off a large battery bank for the short times I want to run air while parked.
