Looking for a quieter ac unit

Does anybody know of a quiet ac unit? The one in the bedroom of my fifth wheel is so loud if you are watching tv you have to turn it all the way up and still questionable on hearing it. I had a dometic brisk II and now have the dometic penguin II. Both are ridiculously loud.

Have you tried it on low fan speed. Never heard of a quiet RV a/c unit.

I'm sitting here with real world experience as I type.
I installed an Atwood Air Command in our 5er, and right now both it and the Dometic Brisk Air OEM unit is running. There is a ton of difference between the noise each makes. I wouldn't say that the Atwood is quieter than the Dometic (though I think it is), but the sound profile difference is amazing. The Dometic makes a highly irritating noise. The Atwood even on high can be talked over and it's easy to hear the radio and TV over.

When I replace the Dometic it will be with an Atwood.
