Re: Too hot to sail...

And how fast does your van heat up again when in direct sunlight?

I think your idea would work(especially if you limit the areas you are cooling) but it would warm up pretty quickly once shut down. Just about any boat with an enclosed cabin is going to have significantly more volume than your van. We have 2 AC units built into our boat that run off shore power or engine driven generator. The temp goes up pretty quickly when the AC is shut off.
