Since you already have the AC w/o heat pump I don't think it's worth the cost and effort to change it out. Just buy a space heater which will be a lot quieter.
If you really want the heat pump why not put in the bedroom vent and have both AC units. I am considering adding another unit because the operating noise is bothersome to me. Thus at night I'd run the front unit and during the day I'd run the rear.
The 30 amp electrical system can't run both at the same time but it wouldn't take much extra effort set it up with a selector switch to operate one at a time. If I were to do it I would probably set it up as a 50 amp feed with 30 on one side and a separate 20 on the other side for the extra AC so I could run both if I wanted to on really hot days. You could also have two plugs, the normal 30 amp and another separate 20 amp just for the extra AC depending on what the campsite setup has for plugins. Just my thoughts.
