RV Airflow System worth it?

Ok I have heard about the RV Airflow system and read reviews on it. Who here has installed this and what were your results and what are your thoughts on it?
I know I could make a system that can or does similar ,but thought I'd ask about this Airflow first. It's a lot of money for some foam shaped to size and plastic inserts. I do see where Grand Design is installing it in their units.

Installed one on my Coleman 15k located in the main living are last week.
It deletes the air shower function and forces the air flow directly in to the duct work and distributes the air evenly throughout the coach.
Thoughts are, DW and I like it for two reasons, it lowered the decibel rate in the living area from 75 to 68 now the TV volume can be lower and if you donít like running the bedroom A/C you only need to run one A/C. There will be so much air coming out of those vents it will mess up a good hair doo if you get to close.
It does seem pricey but cutting insulation board and making your own wonít replicate the AirFlow insert.

I've been wondering the same thing. Seems pricey for some styrofoam. But I've only seen positive reviews.

Yeah ,but so many like it and I have not found one really bad review. I know right now they don't make one for my 8298KS Signature or any of the Rockwood signature or lite 5th wheels. They are in the middle of development of one for them right now. I was just looking to see if anyone had a bad or poor report on them.

I couldn't bring myself to pay that much for a chunk of foam, besides they didn't have one for my unit.

I drew up my own design in CAD, broke it up into 1 inch thick layers. Bought a sheet of 1 inch foam from Lowe's, cut each layer to match the cross sections and assembled the sandwich. Wasn't as fancy/pretty, but it works really well, lot quieter with better airflow through the ducting. And cost less than $30.
