This is exactly what I did except mine is a 12K BTU that I picked up at Sam's club for under $300 last year. Works great.

I picked up my rooftop RV unit off CL for about $250. As long as there are cross beams to support the weight, it is easy to install and wire to a breaker box. I removed the roof vent and mounted the unit in about 45 minutes.

Have them run the wires and put in the roof supports if needed, and you do the rest.

Not too much tilt though. Some are designed to hold condensate. The water runs out into the condenser section and a ring on the condenser fan blade scoops the water and slings it onto the condenser coil to help cool it and lower the head pressure, thus making it more efficient. If there is no ring on the fan of the unit you end up with then drain away!

If you decide to mount this on the side of your trailer, please remember that the maximum width allowed on public roads or highways is 102" or 8.5 feet, excluding required safty equipment (mirrors, etc.). Also, you must be able to see around, over or under the unit to have an unobstructed view.Any wider than that can get you a very costly ticket.
