-Example: a long wheelbase, high roof transit is 411 cubic feet.  Theoretically that would be 205.5cfm, but additional challenges of vanlife (direct sun, less insulation) make 411cfm a safer bet. For purposes of numbers only, [[https://​amzn.to/​2WrUzPA|a unit with those specs]] would cost $300 and use 150w of power on HIGH.  [[https://​amzn.to/​2WrUzPA|A smaller spot cooler]] might be 150cfm, $100, and use 50w.  ​+Example: a long wheelbase, high roof transit is 411 cubic feet.  Theoretically that would be 205.5cfm, but additional challenges of vanlife (direct sun, less insulation) make 411cfm a safer bet.
