coleman mach 15000 btu air conditionerOne step closer to revealing the winner, RV Products’ has sold its 5 millionth Coleman-Mach air conditioner, the company announced today.

This months-long contest will finally reveal its consumer winner soon, while Apache Camper Center in Lincoln, Neb., is the winning dealership. Both consumer and dealer will receive a prize package.

Starting this spring, RV Products announced it would be holding a contest based on the news that it recently manufactured is 5 millionth Coleman-Mach A/C unit. The Coleman-Mach Mach 15, 15,000-Btu unit was packaged in an unmarked box and treated as regular inventory. It was shipped to an unknown distributor and then sent to an unknown dealer who sold it to one lucky customer.

The consumer prize package includes arrangements for the winner to visit RV Products’ Wichita, Kansas factory. The retail owner will also receive a free Coleman-Mach air conditioner of their choice in exchange for the gold shroud unit as it will be sent to the RV Hall of Fame. This milestone unit’s gold shroud is also signed by the RV Products associates who had a hand in manufacturing the unit.

Low clearance overpasses can be a real concern for RVers as the video below illustrates. Despite the warning signs and flashing “Overheight” lights at this Durham, NC, 11-foot-8 clearance railroad trestle, the driver tows his fifth wheel under and cleanly scrapes the air conditioner off the roof. Not sure if he even knew what happened.
