They tuck up under the vehicle quite well. I doubt there would be any problems unless there isn't a space for it under the van due to other items like black/gray water tanks, batteries etc.

If you go to Danhard web site you'll find that many of their AC condensors designed for underbody installation start at 6 inches of depth. Some go up to 8 inches or so. In any case, since the van's loading height at rear is reportedly around 21 inches (when empty) it should allow plenty of room.

I'm quite interested in ProMaster also and I'm wondering how Winnebago got a 2.8KW generator installed on Travato. Generators are much taller by comparison so I'm wondering if they built some form of interior doghouse or if the ground clearance below generator is well under a foot.

The Danhard AC got my attention because it may allow a low-roof ProMaster with Penthouse to park in a home garage with 8-ft-high door.

I agree that vertical under-floor clearance is going to be the main issue with ProMasters. Since the fuel tank and exhaust is mostly under driver and passenger seats, and there is no drivetrain under rest of van, there should be plenty of horizontal space for tanks, batteries, generators, etc.... Vertical space, maybe not so much.

Re: promaster and danhard AC

A front wheel drive van? On these forums? What are you some kind of "Pinko Commi freak " ? Just kidding. I 'm kind of interested myself but not until the diesel becomes available and then after years of other people using them successfully. I don 't trust anything American car companies put out to be bug free off the bat. I understand these vans are used a lot in Europe but they will be using US drive trains designed for I think Jeep Liberty 's. If you go lowroof with poptop,you might consider Colorado Camper Van. They just did a Sprinter and it is on youtube and the top looks great. Van,not so much.
