"The trailer utilizes a small window unit AC under the bed that slides out the streetside trunk door. It is then circulated by a barrel fan that blows it out into the trailer from the under bed storage door."
What exactly is a barrel fan? And would you say that he means it actually slides out from the storage compartment on the outside? Like sitting on a slide out drawer type? I wonder how he seals it on the outside so cold air doesn't escape.
I asked the seller some questions on the set up, but waiting to see if he replies.

Ok, I got a reply from the seller (YEAH!) He wrote:
"Start with an ac that is small enough in height to slide out the storage door but not all the way through with the bracket on the top of the unit. It will need to hang at an angle to drain. Create an intake out of foil over bubble wrap. I got mine at lowes. Isolate the intake vents and attach the bubble wrap to the unit and coming accross at an ange attach to the underbed wall with velcro. You will need to fashion this with duct tapeand make like a vent box to isolate the warm air into the unit from the cool air going out. You will also need to cut a vent into the wall under the bed. I also raised my bed 1.5 inches to accomodate the height of the unit. Then I put a partition down the center of the storage trunk under the bed so half of the bed is storage to the door side of the trailer and the ac hangs out the street side. The cool air is circulated into the cabin by a barrel type Stanley fan from walmart. (looks like a small version of what youwould rent to dry floors) This can be directed up or down on the fan and also by attaching a chain and hook to the underbed door. Hope that helps."
