Best location for the A/C cabinet?

I'm planning on "Cabinet HA" for the frig, microwave, and the A/C. I'm also planning a gaucho on the driver's side.

My questions: where's the best location for the A/C unit? Is there a "best" location, or just wherever I want it?

I've seen it placed right behind the driver's seat, driver's side next to the rear door, over the wheel wells (either side), etc....

Should it be across from the gaucho? Next to it? Does it really matter where it goes?

Thanks for anyone's opinions and/or experience.

Don't know if the best, but I like having mine at the end of the gaucho. AC hits the folks sitting on the gaucho. Beer is never too far out of reach (for the passengers). My gallery has a couple of shots. My micro, however, is in a different cabinet.

Thanks! I saw your gallery. That's similar to what I want mine to be like, only fewer cabinets in the rear.

I was wondering where the best location for that one tall cabinet would be to provide the LEAST interference w/ using the rearview mirror and looking behind you.

I guess there's no position for Cabinet HA to be more advantageous over other positions.

Angled to the back dinette, over the top of the tv, behind the shower cabinet. again, blows directly on the hot people in the back, and beverages are near at hand.



It also blows on the not so hot people in the back. but with enough beverages we don't have any of those
