Which A/C unit do I buy?

I have a 25 foot '72 Tradewind Land Yacht with a Coleman Mach EL series a/c unit. After numerous phone calls, Airstream says it is not the original and Coleman says this unit it at least 40 years old. I find it curious that the original a/c was replaced within approximately 5 years of being new...

This has been an unusually hot summer and like clockwork, when the outdoor temp is 92+ degrees my compressor will shut off within 4 hours and just blow hot air. Coleman says that the motor is overheating.

I have had my Airstream for 8 years and have never had the a/c serviced.
According to Coleman, they don't make them like this anymore and cleaning the filters and outdoor screen are really all the service this unit requires.

So now to my there a unit out there which will easily replace my Coleman and be as self contained? Found someone to install for me but they charge $100 per hour so I want to know what I'm committing to financially. Thanks for any feedback.
