Not that ruling the market makes them a best choice, unfortunately. Still made in China as fast and cheaply as possible. Frustrating.

There are a few manufacturers of RV ACs, Dometic and Coleman probably being the most common. You might have a look at a site like https://www.pplmotorhomes.com/rv-parts-rv-accessories and look to see what is being sold, and the various features that you might prioritize. For example folks with short trailers typically like the look of a low profile AC, whereas for someone with a long trailer, they may not care as much. Similarly, if you are going to spend a lot of time in the trailer listening to the AC, you might prioritize quietness.

At any rate, on the topic of what is made where, with the combination of the trade war and the pandemic, you may find that anything made abroad is in short supply (meaning practically everything). Your decision might be made for you based on what you can buy, especially if you are in a hurry to replace your AC.

good luck!

We have a 2007 20ft. Safari AS. We want to upgrade our AC unit. We plan to do this ourselves. Our local trailer dealer(not AS) that we have dealt with for 35 years recommends a Fusion 1500 BTU. We are concerned about the proper sealing to avoid leakage.

In the first inquiry we discussed replacing the AC on our 2007 AS (20ft). The installation and painting the top of the trailer recommendations are needed. Does anyone have ideas about the best product(s) when we replace the AC unit? Thanks
