Smile AC on '72-31ft (TX Hill Country)

Well I've sat here for about a half hour now trying to typing and deleting in an attempt to ask a concise question to ask but frankly there are so many AC options I have no clue where to even begin so I'll just out with our objectives and hope you guys can help me out to understand all this.

Trailer: 1972 31 Foot Sovereign
Dominant Location: Kerrville, TX
Environment: parked in direct sunlight, no tinted windows
Current AC: Armstrong, blowing but not cold
Current Furnace: Suburban, status unknown

Substantial Cooling in the TX heat. Not barely adequate
Quiet Operation
Utilize the interior condensate drain tube, no water streaks down the side
Unit should not exceed the height of the armstrong
Do Not Have to cut a bigger hole
Automatic Operation (not sure how to word this but we just want to set it to X degrees and have the AC turn on and off on its own without having to fiddle with it)

Heating. (I understand the duo therm AC units don't do a huge job of this but we may not be able to replace the furnace for a while so if it gets us through 1 mild texas winter it would be adequate)

It seems everybody recommends penguin but they are all low profile and my understanding is that the taller units have some advantages? (namely power and quiet operation) Is this correct? I'm not sure if the armstrong is considered low profile but if there was a more appropriate unit that matched the height of the armstrong we would be ok with using it as opposed to penguin.

Sorry I know this is a bunch of questions we are just total newbies and it's about to get really hot down here so any time you veteran 'streamers can save us with suggestions and insight is greatly appreciated.

I am not opposed to fixing the armstrong but is it really adequate for our application of full timing in Tx?
