Quiet? None of them are quiet enough to sleep with running in the bedroom. IMO, it only helps cool the whole coach while both are running during the day.

And that is likely plenty, but still prefer the quieter the better. We did have 2 nights last week that did not drop below 88 with high humidity. I was able to aim our bathroom and bedroom vents both into the bedroom to make it tolerable, but it was struggling. Otherwise, most of our summer nights are in the 60's and 70's and then the single would have no problem at all.

I'd go with the same brand A/C you currently have.

Installing them isn't that difficult if the rig is pre-wired.

Getting the new unit on the roof is the hardest part.

I replaced my A/C unit a few years ago which I show how to do in this video

Add blue thread lock to the bolts too, like I show here

Buy a Atwood if your concerned about noise. They are the quietest I've ever run across and also the most electrically efficient.
