Winnebago air conditioning

We are In the market to buy a new Winnebago gas class A motor home. Are the a/c's quiet in any of these units? If you own any of the Winnebago motor homes, could you tell us about the a/c units? Thank you for your help!

Are you asking about roof air or basement air? My basement unit is much quieter than the roof a/c's. Hope this helps.

Our unit has a full ducted A/C system so, there's no noisy A/C unit sticking down in the center of the coach. For the most part I'd guess it's what your definition of quiet is. Yes you can hear it, yes I need to turn up the TV a bit, but it's nothing that after a while you don't really notice the sound, and on the outside of the coach it's almost dead quiet unlike some A/C's that almost roar when you're outside.

AC in Winnebago Vista '14

We have a Winnie Vista with bath and 1/2 and two AC's - frequently camp for 1-2 months in Florida and take lots of short trips around SE from SC to TX to see grandson race.....definition - lots of AC camping for us.

Other than the first couple of nights we were in our Vista, we don't hear the AC turn off and on - -sort of like in our house - get used to the on an off sequence.
We find the AC works very well - if we are in direct sunlight for afternoon sun or no shade at all - we will leave the front curtains closed and the screen shades down in other windows -also if sun is on side of unit where awning can be out (minus strong wind) we keep it out as it really cuts down on the heat - stays pretty cool unless in days and days of 100 plus weather - then you can easily keep it at around 80 but not much below.....when it is 100 plus outside - 80 degrees is very good! Of course, even on hot days when the sun starts to set the AC works less.

Happy Trails to you!

In a smaller confined space and a small A/C unit it is very difficult to not have any A/C noise. Your best bets will be a basement A/C unit or one with the roof air mounted totally above the ceiling and ducted.

An RV A/C is limited in size and you have to push a certain volume of air through a small area with higher speed fans, you will have some noise.

Also what one person calls noisy, another will not have any issues. It is all very subjective.

We personally leave a fan on one unit running on manual for the small amount of white noise, especially at night, plus the air movement helps keep the RV at a more even temperature.

I believe the OP asked about a NEW coach.....they don't make basement air anymore.
