Which AC to get

Hello im a new Hybrid owner and really need some help. This is the first travel trailer I have owned or worked on, I am pretty handy and can disassemble something and put it back together. My unit did not come with an AC, it does have the 120v lines in the ceiling and the braced frame for mounting. From what I have seen it dosnt look to complicated to install a unit in a prewired setting, just ensure it seats correctly for water tight seal.
My question is I'm trying to decide which unit to go with, there are a lot of options out there. any and all suggestions would be helpful or maybe your experience with a particular model. Thanks for the help!

Just my opinion but brand doesn't really matter But being your in Texas I would go with the 15k BTU rather than the 13.5k btu units

I would recommend Coleman. I have 3 friends with Fairley new rv's and all 3 have had issues with Dometic.

I have the 13.5K on our htt, it works great. But being in Texas, I would consider the 15 unit. Make sure the one you chose has the controls on the init, and does not require ducts.

The air conditioner and ceiling assembly are sold seperately. The ceiling assembly decides whether it is ducted or non-ducted.

I'm looking on to a jayco hybrid most likely a 16xrb,
Question is it has a side wall mounted unit.
Will this unit keep my camper cool bring it has tent ends?
What are halls experience with this?
And how do you like the hybrids?
Thanks for any help

15k is great but if you dry camp a lot it takes 2900 watts to start it according to Coleman.Happy Trails
