Replacement for Fantastic Fan

It seems that many are having the problem we are fighting: The leaking fantastic fan! Has anyone discovered a better substitute?

And, a related question: I will have to drill some of the screw heads to get the fan off. I am having a difficult time reaching all of the screws from a ladder. Does anyone know if the roof in the area over the bedroom in a 94 34 ft Excella is strong enough for my 200 lb weight?

I like these and have three of them.

10 speeds forward and reverse, you can run them in the rain, leave them open during the rain and not get wet (no relying upon electric rain sensors), and they haven't leaked on me yet.

Best of luck,
