I removed one of the side windows near the sleeping area, cut a piece of foam insulation board to fit the window frame, and cut a circular hole in the foam board to fit the airpipe from the bucket cooler. I also built a very simple table to elevate the swamp cooler to the height of the window and bungeed the whole thing to the trailer keep it from blowing over. Hung a spare sheet as a curtain around the bed to keep the cool air. Best playa project I've ever done. Just keep the roof vent open when the swamp cooler is running.
Also, we found the old incandescent light bulbs to be the biggest power draw in the trailer, consider swapping for LED bulbs or using alternative lighting to preserve your trailer's battery power. This year I will string up a solar Xmas light inside the trailer and not use the built in interior lights.

What vehicle will you be towing with?
