Am I seeing this correctly? No ducted air conditioning? That's old entry level stick and tin stuff. No way would I go for that.

Having ducted air is a big must have feature. Heck, good catch as I thought ducted air was more standard, especially on nice 5th wheels.

I am a lurker on Facebook and decided to join the Alliance Facebook page a couple of weeks ago. Its very active and the founders monitor it and respond quickly to questions, etc.
Many of the other members are so defensive. Cracks me up. An upstart company with followers who don't even own one of these rigs yet.
At any rate, one of the founders of Alliance responded to my inquiry about the ac system. The bedroom ac is ducted to allow a vent in the closet (yes, closet!) and bathroom. However, the 2 units in the main level are not ducted. I was told it allows the ac system to be more efficient.
I left the FB group as I'm have heard enough. I wish them luck but I see nothing special about their build quality that would make me want one.

I am impressed that they recognize the real need for 3 AC units on any 5th wheel longer than about 36'. We have a 2019 41' Solitude with 2 15K btu ducted AC units and have a hard time cooling it well in hot weather. Grand Design should at least prep their larger units for a 3rd AC or offer it as an option.
