What AC unit came on these trailers

I have been looking at some late 70's early 80's Airstreams and I was wondering who made the factory AC unit on these things. I have seen Duotherms and Colemans on them.

Armstrong AC's were used up to and including the 79 models.

After that, then Coleman AC's were used for a few years.

Ok that makes sense. I looked at an 81 Excella II and it had a coleman on it with a shroud that was falling apart. Do they make replacement shrouds for the Coleman units? I bet they are not cheap if they do.

Perry,
They aren't cheap, but you sometimes get what you pay for.
Here is a Coleman shroud.
