Good to hear that there appears to be sucess in using Mimi-splits.
What brand of unit have each of you been using?
Are any of them heat pumps that would provide both heating and cooling?
Nick, looks as if you've been installing a lot of residential units. If you were to do and install in a bus, what unit would you use? Would it be a heat pump?
Looking forward to some feedback.

Hate to say but I went for the deal $ bought all three of mine in a package delivered for 1450.  2ea 9,000 and a 12,000 heat and cool. Soleus Brand. After talking to others there is just not enough difference in occasional use in my case to make a difference. Just selected the features I wanted and went from there.  bought direct from distrib.  Talked to many members and professional installers and their main concern if any was condensate spillage and 2 suggested mount a little off level and make sure bus is level when parked. really only concern expressed.   Bob     minnisplits@evergreenproducts.com

Mine are both heat pumps.  One Sanyo 12K BTU with an inverter compressor (variable speed compressor, no power spike when coming on).  The other is a Kilimaire 12K BTU, half the price of the Sanyo. (I kind of wish I'd gotten another Sanyo)  Both work just fine.  As far as the condensate issue I used both drains (one at each end of the tray) and have had no issue.
