On our bus conversion the engine and AC pump are in the rear , the cold air is at the dash , so 35+ ft of piping is no hassle.

A delight is that an engine driven unit will operate at most any engine speed , so no thought like a belted cruise generator would require is needed .

You might contemplate a std RV rooftop unit $500-600 to purchase and far easier install.

They do operate with a sine wave inverter (not cheap) and large alternator.

The Delco DN 50 would be a wise investment as they can put out massive DV on an almost forever basis.

Probably 3 belts will be required to drive it , but running a belt for the AC compressor will also require a special set of brackets.
