I have the standard height 13.5. I can't imagine the low profile being any louder. I have been told the 13.5 low profile Coleman is much quieter than the Dometic unit. If I had it to do over again I'd go low profile... height can get you in trouble. Just MHO.

I am not sure what Columbus used for a low profile unit but my bedroom a/c is a Dometic Quiet Zone. It is quiet.

Is your rig sitting nose high?
Brochure said "12' 6" but that was without the front low-profile A/C. I measured 13' 6" when attached. The 2015 GMC 2500 sits very high and at best I am nose high 1" to 2" depending on how I adjust my hitch height for bed rail clearance. I can go from 6" to 3" clearance. At 13' 6" that is with 6" clearance and the trailer almost 2" nose high.

On a long flat Interstate route, I'll run with 4" clearance, but to be safe I always look for bridge and overhang clearance of at least 13' 6".

Just a question is your Dometic Quiet zone connected to your duct work in the coach? I wish mine was. That would keep the noise level at a much lower level

Yes in my Columbus 295 both units are tied to the same ductwork.

As HBILLSMITH said., you better measure when hooked up and ready to go.
