We normally use window ac's but leaving them on is not an option really. I'm moving my film archive to a place that has ac, but there's no room for the gear there. Mainly I'm worried about the lube in my Hasselblad and Schneider lenses I guess. I would also not like to find all the leatherette peeling off or stupid cosmetic stuff that would be a pain to deal with. I know it's not like locked-in-a-car heat, but still, is 90-100F for two weeks a big deal?

That's not too bad. Wrap them up in something which will insulate them, and stick them under the bed or in a closet. Their average temp. will remain pretty reasonable. After all, we run at 99 degrees or so for years with no ill effect.
