You are correct, my friend. Dare I say that many consider our beloved Airstreams to be a dated ugly design as well ... but, then, we picked them - flaws and all. Here in the MaxxAir vent cover is an innovative design to help solve a known problem that has existed for many years ... without solution until just relatively recently. Heck, I guess that many consider me ugly, too!

The hardest part will be cutting away all the old sealant to get at the slot in the #8 screws. I will probably take a ladder out to the trailer and install them this weekend. Doubt whether it will take nuch more than a half-hour to mount them.

The new vent cover is no taller than the old one, but is a bit wider. The extra width probably helps in the airflow department.

Hi John,

I just wanted to touch base to see how your install went and if you had a picture you could post of the trailer with the covers in place?

It has been so hot here that I haven't installed the covers yet. They are assembled and laying on the bed.

Anyone have any experience with the black ones and how well they block out light in the morning? Someone mentioned they purchased a black one for the fan over the bedroom and a white one for over the kitchen/galley area.

Ya, way too hot to be up on a ladder. I should have thought of that before asking.

My trailer is in storage and I'm not doing anything extra right now either, just ordering odds and ends and staying indoors most of the time.

Can hardly wait for the cool weather to come back so I can get on the road.

I wanted to see what a black cover looked like on the streams. I searched some photos on this forum and found this one. Doesn't look bad at all. The one in the pic is a Maxxair brand, I think.
The Road Home, A Friendly Face - summer, 2008, Photo Gallery

It's not over the bedroom fan but over the lounge area. Not sure what is over the other fan as it's not in the pic.

I have purchased one cover in smoke for the lounge area in the rear of my trailer. I would have gotten a second one for the over the bedroom fan but with the solar panels there is not enough room.
I got the Ultra Breeze cover.
Hopefully, I'll install it in the next couple of days.

Hi, I put the Maxxair ll vent covers on my trailer and they work just fine. Only one of my vents is a Fantastic Vent. I saw a longer version of the vent cover flow test and it stated that the Fantastic Vent brand vent cover has an optional screen. [test was done without the optional screen] Test them again, mine against theirs, Both with screens and both without screens. My screens are removable, but I won't run without them.
