Aside from A/C, how do you keep your PuP cool?
With the Gismos, I also use Reflectex in the windows and under the bunks.

Google is your friend.
Even though I had a good idea what a PU Gizmo was based on some descriptions I also Googled it just to be sure.
Basically it is a quality solar blanket that is cut to fit over your bunk ends. Shining side up and it reflects heat, turn it over and it retains heat.
Its not what we take with us that matters but what we leave behind that counts.
Other - my first choice for cooling is shade. We try to book campsites with shade. We prefer a shade cooled camper with the windows open (but no hesitation to use the A/C for heat, humidity or rain!).

I voted other. A combination of a shady site with a fan and all windows open during the day and AC at night (especially when it is still 90 degrees at 10 p.m.!)

We use the emergency blankets from Cabella, but I should have checked other. We start out by finding a shady spot, always use the emergency blankets, we have a fan that lives in the pup and all windows are left open.
Because of my COPD we really don't camp when the humidity is high, but my DH has found a way to set up a window unit A/C and we bring it along if we feel the temps will be hot into the night.

We use the better Emergency Solar Blankets because they fit just right and the price is right. We also use fans inside.
