Very nice camper! Ducted A/C is the way to go, for sure. It will allow you to shut the door to the bathroom and still get it cooled. With a 25 foot TT, I'd go with the 15k unit (it's what I have in mine), but your floorplan is so open that a 13.5k unit would work as well. It really comes down to where you intend to be most of the time. In fact, the usefulness of most of those options would be determined by where you intend to camp most often. Of course, if you got all the options available, you'd have quite the four seasons camper, too. Keep in mind that many options add weight. The specs indicate this is easily towed with a half ton, but you can quickly reach the limits if you aren't paying attention. Heated tanks can go a long way to relieving stress if you are camping in freezing weather.

Purchase in haste and repent at leisure.

Now is the time to get the facts and buy the best trailer you can afford rather than not get something and want to add it later. In order to get meaningful advice you need to tell more about what your intended usage is and where you expect to camp. One sage piece of advice l have seen on these Internet fora is to buy your second RV first.

Regarding size of a/c, consider whether or not you will be camping in 95F and high humidity and if so then get the larger unit. Ducted a/c is both quieter and more efficient. l live and frequently camp in Texas where it can get below freezing. for me heated holding tanks is a must and is easier to get from the factory than installed after.

Each person's needs are different and what would work for you may not work for someone else to remember that when considering the responses. 😊
