Alternative to RV AC Unit?

Last week while traveling on business, my hotel room was equipped with a Mitsubishi ductless AC unit that kept the room like a meat locker, but more importantly to me, I could not heat it running. The circulation of air was far superior to anything I have seen. Just beginning to research, but it appears that the primary manufacturers are LG and Mitsubishi. The AC units come with or without heat pumps which means with or without the outside unit. Below are links to ceiling mounted 2.0 ton (24,000 Btu) and 2.5 (30,000 Btu) Mitsubishiís. They make a wall mounted unit, like my hotel room, but probably not a good fit for a fifth wheel.

Standard AC and Heat Pumps both require an outside Condensing Unit.


Started Out With Nothing,
Still Have Most Of It Left!

Unless they are different from the ones I installed, you need an outside condenser. These are just the air handlers.

Problem would be the larger ones are 220v. Wouldn't work in an RV.

This is an example of a ductless system. The condenser, air handler and thermostat. You supply the copper lines.

Thanks, and I did see these combinations, however, website for the "P" series, Mistsubishi site gives you the impression that the outside unit is not necessary. Again, just starting to look and don't need one just yet...they sure are nice...
