Source for rectangular RV a/c ducting

Hey all, I'm having a bit of trouble locating a source for the narrow rectangular aluminum ducting that is used (usually in the ceilings for A/C units) in RV HVAC systems.

I'm in the process of restoring a 40 year old RV, and am adding a roof A/C unit. The used A/C unit I ended up obtaining is designed for ducted use (though it can be run with a straight down discharge), and since I already plan to take down the interior ceiling, and figured it would be a good time to route a duct line over into the nearby cabinets so I can add A/C ducting around the unit instead of just freezing us out in the dinette .

Thanks!

I would think any sheet metal place close to you could make up whatever you need for your job. Once that is in place the ducting to the outlets you want inside yopur unit would be easy enough to cut in.

The stuff used in my fifth wheel is like a rigid version of reflectix, which I haven't seen in the standard sheet metal furnace supplies.

I assisted a buddy with some interior ceiling work on his unit and the attached is kinda what was in the ceiling of his unit. Not sure of the measurements but the look is right.

I am in the a/c business, doing the duct in aluminum would be a little pricey, but it is better than galvanized, go to any sheet metal shop with your drawings, they can fabricate whatever you want.
