I've been waiting to pull the trigger on the air conditioning unit for the teardrop, as ClimateRight was going to be releasing a model with heat in addition to A/C. I pre-ordered my CR-5000 ACH today, and it should arrive in late May! Perfect timing as I plan on ramping my build back up after a long winter. This combination heater / A/C unit will be housed in the tongue box in front of the teardrop.

As you can see, there is plenty of room in the design of the tongue box to accommodate the ClimateRight. I plan on adding a removable shelf right above the top of the AC unit for additional storage.
Here is the box staged with the AC unit, possible battery location, and hoses.
