    What are you guys using to keep your enclosed trailers cool other than the typical roof vent? Anyone used one of those MaxxAir vent covers?

    I order all my trailers with these great little side pop out vents. I open the front one facing towards the front of the truck and the one in the back opens towards the rear. As the truck drives, air is forced into the front vent, through the trailer and out the back vent. Works great, and keep the trailer very comfortable. If you dont have these vents, than I dont know what you can do. Look to see if the pop outs can be added.

    They make a heat reflective coating for buildings. You can also use some insulating foam sheets on the inside of the trailer, with both those two modifications I bet you will cut down the temps in your trailer substantially.

    For me I just keep the back ramp down the whole time I'm at a property and that's enough ventilation.

    ask obama he has plenty of alternative ideas. I only know what will cool a trailer. Seriously look at any fiber splicing truck that phone and cable companys have they all have a/c.
