Recommended Slim A/C ?

I've been searching for a super slim A/C. I'm looking for something that's ultra low power and it doesn't have to cool all that much... I'm wondering if there's anything I can fit between my roof and my roof rack.

Recommendations?

This is about all I've found thus far:

Alternatively, I was thinking of looking for or building an evap.

PS: I searched... I swear I did... and didn't find anything... Still, someone I know someone will do a search string that's way obvious and point me to what I'm looking for and I will feel the dumb.

Nope... but I was considering a small generator.. Right now my uninstalled battery bank consists of 1 extra battery... so I'll have to change a lot of plans if I follow through with a/c.

It's been hot here lately so I filled the tank full of ice to see if it would make a difference. I was surprised, 30 minutes later the room was noticeably cooler. Been thinking of coming up with something like that for the van.
