This is supposed to be one of the finest air conditioners that Coleman has made over the years. It comes in 4 model color designs, textured and polished in both black and white.

What makes it so special is that it uses a large evaporator and large coils to cool the air down in your trailer or RV. Then if you like cool weather camping, there is an optional heater assembly that produces roughly 5,000 BTUs.

When cooling, the unit uses 12.8 amps, and when heating that amp use goes up to 16. Plus, it weighs about 80 pounds. The AC unit has been given a medium profile so it should not get in the way when you are going under lower overpasses or into smaller tunnels.

Does Coleman Still Make RV Air Conditioners?

It seems that the company still makes their own air conditioners but, and it is an important but, while the brand name says Coleman on the AC unit, the company may have created another unit and called it either RV Products or Airxcel.

If you go to this link, you will land at Airxcel which lists a brief history of the Coleman AC units and it also lists the different Coleman air conditioners for sale.

When you go to the Coleman Mach web page from that landing page, you will find that Coleman Mach is a brand name for Airxcel. What is not sure is if Coleman owns this company or if it is own bed by Airxcel. The website does not say.

According to the Coleman/RV Products website, these air conditioners come in three different BTU levels. There is the smaller 11,000 version, then there is the 13,500 option, and finally the 15,000 BTU level.

The Mach 3 or Mach 3+ comes in the 13,500 BTU range and provides up to 320 CFM when cooling your RV or trailer. The Mach 3+ fan motor is said to be the largest in the industry at 1/3 HP.
