My previous trailer was a a Bigfoot with ducted heating which was very quiet and a blessing after putting up with the noisy furnaces on my Casitas and Parkliner.
The newer model heater on my Escape is not quite as quiet but still not a sleep disturber, at least for me. I'm quite happy with it.
There's no problem with it heating the whole trailer in these small rigs.

I’ve camped down into the single digits and the heater works well. No need for ducts, even my bathroom stayed warm. And rather quiet for this style of propane heater. However, it sure does suck the propane once temperatures drop below freezing! When I am hooked up to electric, I use a small ceramic heater that even on low-750 watts- keeps my 19 comfortable.

This is our experience also, right down to the small ceramic heater!

I don't see ducting to be a big advantage. We have a 19 and this really isn't a very large space to heat. A 17 would be even less. Our furnace works perfectly for the space we are in.
