Fan

I have a fantastic fan coming in the mail but now I am thinking about the Maxfan.What do you all think I should do?Should I sell the fantastic fan and get the maxfan.(I am wanting to get 2 of them for the front and back.)Or should I keep the fantastic fan and get a Maxfan for the front and fantastic fan for the rear.The idea of having it when it is raining in the fall and spring months are Ideal for something like this as we have really long cool months.Thanks.

Go with a double Maxx! I have changed out at least a dozen for customers since I began talking about them. The biggest plus is the ability to operate them in the rain!

Would it be ok to get the one with the LCD thermostat and mount it to the ceiling right beside the fan.Seems that it would not be that hard to do.Plus I would not be using the control system every time except to turn it on.

Thumbs up

Another vote for the MaxxFan! I installed one in the front of our 21ft. Sovereign and I am very impressed! We were able to keep the vent open while driving and also during rain storms. Installation was simple--very similar look on the inside to the fantastic fan. Check out the low power consumption as well. Great for boondocking!

Devoman,

I don't know anything about the fans, but have bought a few items from the ebay dealer you listed. They have always provided good service shipping the product quickly. I haven't had to deal with any returns so I don't know how they are there.

Interestingly, this Maxxfan doesn't have the very feature we bought our Fantastic vent for: Clear fan blades for a sunroof effect while using. It's still an opaque cover that you can see thru. I like being able to see out. And on top of all of that Fantastic fans work fine in rainy weather, as long as you don't open the lid all the way, and have the fan blowing out.

And Carol, if you buy them I'll tell Bob at Fantastic you did!

Oh no, don't tell Bob! I will probably be bringing in the 06 in for a rear vent and have him put in a reverse kit for the front. Otherwise I could go with one of each and do a series of comparison testing. I don't know who gets more from us, the state of Michigan for permanent trailer plates or Fantastic Vent!

Fan

I think I am going to stick with the fantastic fan as the Maxxfan will be a special order and they can not even get a price on it until next week then order it and that could take longer to get that to afterwards.
I wish I could get one sooner but the problem I am having is that when I had purchased this Airstream a bit ago the vent tops were sun dried and they broke within the first 2 days of having it.I have some cheapo replacments on the top right now but they will not seal properly so moisture can get in the Airstream and that is not a good thing.(It is not good when it is foggy and you can feel the moisture when you try to sleep.)I just got the fan from the UPS man and I will be installing it tomorrow and putting one in the back as well.
Sorry but I am not going to be selling it anymore.

Devoman,
The MaxxFan that you found on Ebay is the same one that I installed on my Sovereign last year--only I went with the translucent white rather than the smoke grey. More light! The MaxxFan btw has a clear blade so that it does let in quite a bit of light. The remote control feature was not offered last year. It looks to be very slick! The only thing that would concern me is the increased complexity of operation. Simplicity has its virtues!! Good luck!

Simplicity!

You know, I was just mentally agreeing with you. Why on EARTH would you want a remote when you're going to be within 5 steps of the fan anyway?

How lazy have we gotten as a society? I realized this when I went crazy after misplacing my TV remote. I don't use it to WATCH TV, I use it to channel hop. I miss more than I watch.

Scuze me, I'm going to peel two potatoes by HAND now, then I'm going to use a manual can opener....

Later I'm going to look for an RV version of that $5000 Japanese toilet that automatically rinses your pink parts and gently blows them dry. (Bet it's lousy for boondocking though!)
