I am looking at the Hannigan GTL sidecar or the Astro 2+2. I am wondering how hot it may get in the tub while traveling in the heat. My concern would be for my little lady, a neo mastiff.

My wife said it got pretty hot, so I added a air cope to the hood.

It had a small vent on the left side but not big enough for much air to get in.

We were concerned about that as well, particularly since we traverse the desert several times a year. We had the "factory" air installed in our Hannigan GTL. It is an ice cooled condenser system, not a swamp cooler, and it seems to work well. I say seems to because we haven't had warm enough days to be able to actually use it.

Regards,

Jeff

Many sidecars have circular floor vent that they can open and close as needed.
Here is a $40 vent on eBay

No need to pay $40. For $10 you can do similar from black sewer pipes from hardware store.
An ice cooled condenser system works well. Just add ice every 2-3 hrs.

After reading the entire description, I think I'd pass on that. Opening the vent would bring heat up from the asphalt quite likely making it warmer inside. Most of Hannigan's and Champions sidecar have a forward facing vent that allows air in from the front. I'll stick with our AC.

That looks pretty good vent. We'll be working on the side car right after we finished installing the new tires and atv plows on the Kawi Brute. We'll take a look at that floor vent.

I have a Hannigan Astro 2+2 and I live here in Florda. They get pretty “toasty” in the warm weather, I am finishing up the DIY install of ice cooled condenser unit and will try to do a write up with pics and parts I am using.

The stock Hannigan AC is a Water condenser system. I knew my wife would need it so we had it installed as an option.
