Our first TT a single slide-out Puma ..and our first 5th wheel both had the "grill work" in the ceiling..for the A/C.. which worked ok ..but when it turned on..TOO NOISEY !!! you would have to turn the volume up on the television to hear that..then if you needed to talk to someone at the same time... things get louder ...Our new Crusader 5th wheel...only small round vents for the air in the ceiling....very nice ..is see this as a trend setting design for the future

This is very true I had both, and you can still open the slides in the grill for cooling an area faster, but it is alot quieter and you still get high and low fan, I just keep my fan speed on low so you can still carry on a conversation without yelling to be heard.......

I currently have both, ducked in the kitchen/living area 15,000 btu and not ducked in the bedroom 13,500 btu. The ducked is better even distribution and less noise. The non-ducked in the bedroom is noisy and it has settings vs controler. Good Luck with your new unit.

Ours is both. We can run it either way by opening and closing a valve.
Sometimes we use the roof only for cold air in the main living area quickly, then flip a valve to get it going central ducted to cool the rest.
