Roof truss construction, mini split retrofit

Hello! First post.

I have a 2017 Majestic and I want to remove the noisy rooftop ac units and install ceiling cartridge mini splits.

Does anyone here know how the roof and roof trusses are configured? The various NH videos show pretty much every element of construction but that. Is it an aluminum grid frame with a plywood overlay? Assuming so, how are the frame members arranged? I want to know before I start if I’ll have to cut the structural roof grid to fit a mini split down in the current ac holes.

Many thanks to anyone who knows this.
