I have a pair of these (' not sure which) picked up in store from Target.  They're a little heavy but comfortable and fold to a pretty thin cross-section:
Check weight limits on all chairs.

It's just bolted. When removed Dicor works great. Won't leak.

While backing up I caught a limb on the luggage rack almost dead center. It bent the horizontal bar forward about six inches ripping the vertical support from the roof.  (the one left of centerline) with slight damage to one on the right.  My intentions are to remove entirely the rack upon return from my trip leaving 28 April.  The silver lining in this dark cloud is there was no damage to camera or the fiberglass house, only the rack itself with roof damage where it broke loose from roof.  I plan to apply dicor or appropriate sealant to the damaged areas.  I can check with factory, but does anyone know how the rack is attached/removed to/from roof?  I am also open to suggestions on how to do temporary repair to prevent leakage for the time being.  I don't have time remove prior to departure.  Thanks

Keelhauler, your idea is exactly what we decided on talking to Earl today! Great minds think alike, I hope. BTW, we lived in Avon, Ohio 2003-2008 before moving back south.
Thank you for the input everyone. Planning on finalizing this tomorrow so I can move on and worry about other things. 😬

Just for the record for people who wonder about the 2350 with no slide-out.  The standard a/c unit works great in over 100 degree temps, but you have to do well at blocking out the sun in the cab area, and use your awnings to keep the sun off the thermal pane windows.  Depending on how bad the heat is, you may have to sacrifice the bathroom.  Keep that door closed and let it cook in there.

And don't be opening the entry door all the time.   Smile

On the 2552 you could have 2 A/C units 10' apart. Use front where the vent is now and the back where the Fantastic fan is.
The Fantastic fan could go where A/C is now.

Plenty of room as long as you don't need roof for anything else.

I only camp in the winter and almost never run our A/C at all, but I like it hot.

As far as location of two units on the 2552 I believe one is along the centerline and between the microwave and pantry, the other along the centerline between both beds close to the bathroom door.  Not a huge distance apart, but the two different 'rooms' they serve would provide some noise baffling between the two.

I've tried researching noise levels of different models from different companies and found precious little regarding technical specs or advertised sound levels (actual decibels) Different designs of different brands at different times can have significant impact on noise.  Noise can emanate from motors, fan blades, etc.  On the Coleman Mach 8 15,000 BTU unit, which I have, there were changes made to the fan blades over the recent years which reduced noise.  On other companies units, the diffusers were recently redesigned to reduce noise.  Personally, I think the diffuser makes a huge impact on noise.  Trying to disperse and divert air by pushing it over fins and flaps creates a racket (remove your ceiling diffuser and see the difference)

Knowing as much (or as little) as I do now, I would have specified two non-heatpump units (one 13.5k and one 15k btu) with high CFM rates (they apparently range from 275-350 or so), multiple fan speeds and well engineered diffuser/motor/blade designs.  For us, very low roof profiles (like our Mach 8) or savings of a couple hundred dollars (Dometic) are not as important as good performance and reduced noise.  We like nice sunny weather but aren't terribly comfortable at temps over 100 degrees or at very high humidity levels, so two units would have made us much happier.

We've settled on the Kamp-Rite Director's Chairs, available at many places.  They are comfortable, can be used as table seating, fairly lightweight, easy to fold/unfold, have a great flip-up side table, can be hung upside down from a ladder rack (like this one:, can be stored in tow vehicle, or stores temporarily behind drivers or passengers seat in our 2552 while underway.

The Strongback chairs are very comfortable.  Two of them fit in the slide out drawer with a patio mat.
