Haven't got any experience with this method, but you might be able to mount it under the roof at the rear. You chould then run a roof-vent to cool it. the only downside is that you'd lose a fair bit of headroom in the rear, and I'm not sure if the water pump even has enough guts to pump it up there!!

OK, that site that zenjoe posted is of Dan's bus (aka danzin). You can catch him on this forum along with Col who also has a Suby powered bus

my rad sits directly behind the engine with a big hole in the rear hatch for flo-thru and 2 fans to help it!

Dan's set-up is loads smoother, with no obvious add-on's seen from the outside of the bus....Stealth or what. The guy lives in Queensland, which get very hot and humid. If it can live there, it can live anywhere!
