This is basically what we did, we installed a two-way Fantastic Fan over our bed in the Safari with the Maxx Hood. This was we can leave it open all the time even when towing. When the AS will be parked in the drive for a while we will open one of the back windows, turn the fan on low out and the trailer stays cooler and fresh.
