Ceiling fan in a Georgetown XL 378

I am in the market for a motorhome for fulltiming and the 378 is a front runner. Has anyone ever installed a ceiling fan in a bedroom? Is it possible? I have no idea about the ceiling structure and if it could support a fan. Any advice will be grateful.

With the 2nd AC installed in the bedroom there is no room for a ceiling fan.

Thanks for the reply, ramair. I was afraid of that but still wanted to know before I bought. Thanks again.

My experience with ceiling fans in RV's isn't good. The constant vibration underway causes the pot metal brackets to brake.

We secure a small fan on the bedroom door and leave on... Set bedroom lower. Set front higher and have another small fan to increase circulation
Sound was a big issue... Added a/c sound board to reduce noise and improves cooling.
We are in middle of Missouri... Hot and humid. No problems so far with not keeping comfortable.
