Harley -

The AC units are universal in thier application, therefore any brand will fit. The only criteria is it has to be the non-ducted type and as a result you typically have to buy the enterior control/faceplate separately.

You have additional options on whether to go with a standard height or low profile. We have the keystone factory AC standard height which increases our overall height to 13ft-3in. You can keep this down to 13ft-0in with a "low-profile" unit. As an opinion only, I believe the standard height units are quieter than the low profile units, but I have no scientific evidence to base my decision on. Our old Monty had a low profile, and our new one has standard height in front and the new one "seems" quieter, however I am older and everything "seems" quieter - blurry too!

Happy shopping!

We have the low profile Dometic Penguin AC in the bedroom. It works fine but is noisy, even on low speed. But not a problem for us even when we are sleeping--works like a white noise machine.

Based on the advice others provided to us on this forum, we had the optional heat strip installed in the unit so that we can use the AC in cooler temps to circulate some warm air in the bedroom.

My Big Sky has a 13500 Brisk-Air put on at the factory, works fine. I am going to install a heat strip. Kerry

I also have the Penguin Duo-therm lo profile. I believe thought that I am still 13'3" Brad. I need to get a good measurement on this height figure, though. I now also have a vent cover now, too, for my bathroom vent.
