I think part of the noise generated is because of the wood framing, instead of the metal framing as Airstream recommends.

Why did Carrier drop out ?
I'm looking to try a newer roof top AC from my orginal Colemans after the last few weeks in super hot Florida.
What is the best ACs today and why?
I have vacuumed and recharged these orginals a few years ago, but think they need more than just a recharge.


Would like to here anyones opion on these.

Your opinion is valued, please not your opinion of someones else's opinion.

Glad to hear that someone else finds the AC units a bit noisy. I thought i was going deaf on vacation. Had to keep asking DW to repeat everything because couldn't hear much over the AC on high. Just one more reason for non summer camping here in Texas I guess. Can't wait for Fall.

Dometic=Duotherm. So your choice is Dometic or AirExcell (Coleman). If you want to use a drain pan and drain the condensate through the drain tube, rather than over the side, you will have to use the Dometic Penguin.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Goal 15.

It is especially bad when our last airstream was so much quieter. I know dometic can make them quieter if they want.
