Mounted AC Solutions for Cargo Area?

I have been looking all over for a cargo area AC solution and can't seem to find a suitable product. I have the rear molle panels and wanted to mount a small AC/fan unit on the passenger side panel to utilize the cargo power outlet. We love taking our dog on trips or when we head up to the cabin. She used to be in the back seat with all our stuff in the cargo area. Now that we have a kid, our stuff is in the back seat and our doggo is in the cargo area. It just gets so dang hot back there, especially in AZ, I wanted to install a cooling solution for her back there. Also, I occasionally sleep in my truck when I am up hunting, would be nice to circulate some air on those occasions too.

Anybody retrofit something or know of a product? Thanks in advance.

Seems like all I could ever find were those 12v fans that you could clip on to one of the overheard handles. Please post your solution if you find one.

I have one of those 120V squirrel cage fans back in the cargo area. Plugged into my outlet. I keep it on low and whenever I want circulation, I tap the button on the dashboard. Does a decent job of circulating some air to keep the entire cabin closer to uniform temperature.

They make simple fans you can mount and power in a few ways.
Car Camping Fan – The Van Mart

Just a thought on the sleeping solution, If you install a remote start some of them will run and cut off after 20mins of idling. Most activate from your keys and you can run the vehicle heat or A/C during the time before cutoff. Its not a perfect solution but its simple and can be run intermittently at the cost of gas without getting out of bed.

The Eco flow Wave 2 also exists but after you add a battery its $2200. Just remember that real A/C units are essentially heat pumps. The require ducting and use large amounts of power to accomplish this. Alternatively, Swamp coolers work under some climate conditions but not everywhere.

I think I can make a bracket for something like this https://www.amazon.com/Vornado-TRANS...1&sr=8-58&th=1

It could only be ran while the engine is running, but could do the trick for the dog. Does anyone see a reason why this would not work (assuming I make a bracket to mount it to the molle panels)?

If a fan will suffice and your dog is in a kennel, there's a variety of fans that hang off the door or side of a wire kennel.

Some are corded but most are battery operated.
