Your dealer has given you incorrect information. Advent is manufactured by a very large CHINESE
firm that also makes Voyager and Jensen brand electronics. THEY ARE NOTHING LIKE A CARRIER, and from what I have been told, they bear a striking resemblance to a Dometic Brisk Air unit right down to the shape and size of the shroud. There are currently no low profile units being produced.
For what it's worth, I would stick with the known, proven RV air conditioner manufacturers like RVP (Coleman) and Dometic. Both companies manufacture their units in the USA!
THE ONLY WAY TO REDUCE THE TRADE DEFICIT WITH CHINA IS TO STOP BUYING THEIR PRODUCTS AND RETURN OUR MANUFACTURING BASE BACK HERE!!!!!
