1997 Widebody Ducted AC added roof conversion

So lot's of discussions on ducted AC conversions. I have a 97 Classic 30' that I have decimated down to the bones and am putting back together. Right now waiting on the delivery of the 8 gage Ancor Marine wire to re-wire it from 30 amp to 50 amp for the extra AC I will be adding. Actually will be replacing the existing original AC with a 13,500 and High Capacity Dometic Penguin II AC system.

I want ducted and although I am a short 5'10" I really don't want to cut down on interior height. So here is what I have been looking to do, want to see if it is impossible or doable. I have found 2"high square HVAC ducting, since I am in a wide body 1997 similar shape to the new models could I run the ductwork on the top and then place a layer of aluminum over to top to mimic the hump on the 16+ models? Would have to run supports vertically as to satisfy the ductwork as well as attacking to the existing horizontal frame bars. Possible?

You're going to have to draw it up. Anything is possible.. but somethings that are possible, shouldn't be done.
