Shades for Fan-tastic Fan

I have a 2019 Flying Cloud 30RB. It has shades on the main skylight, a few upper portholes, and 1 of 2 Fan-tastic fans. I donít understand why every other skyward facing source of light would have a shade and not this one fan. Is that typical? I would like to have a shade on both fans. Any ideas on how to order one? They are made by United Shade, a Dicor company. I want to make sure I get the same color, fabric, and dimensions as the rest of the shades.

I also bought some of this to cut, fit and put behind the shade. reduced my internal heat a lot and gave my AC an even chance to cool the interior in 90-degree weather.

The Fantastic in the bedroom area is supposed to be equipped with a shade. The Fantastic in the main living area is not supposed to have a shade.

The first thing we did when we got our Airstream was to install two Maxxair vent covers. These come in various colors. We installed black in the bedroom and tinted in the living area. In our unit the bedroom had no shade and the living area did. That was fine by us because the cover we installed is black there. These allows you to have the vents open while traveling, in the rain, etc.

Hi

If you take a look at the Fantastic Fan in the bedroom, the shade has a manufacturer and a part number on it. One would *guess* that contacting that manufacturer with that part number would go a ways towards getting a second shade.

No that's not my idea originally. It came from a sales guy at a certain Airstream dealer in ... errr .... North Carolina ...

If somebody noted the manufacturer and part number, then we *all* might get into the same refit process ....

Just check mine. There is no identification visible. It may be on the top, and if so, the shade will have to be removed to see it.

Hi

I believe the ones in the Classic are made by Ocenair. I have no idea if all the trailers get the same shade or not.

Since it's a standard 14" roof vent, can't you use these?
