Another option for moving air inside your trailer is the Endless Breeze portable fan. It's light weight and runs on 12 volts.

We have three ffs - and I agree with Michelle that the bathroom one works great. The original bathroom fan is worthless. Mine have the rain sensors, but there is something about the operation I do not yer understand.

As for the skylights - we love the light they give. When there is too much heat, we use some alum insulation cut to fit and just stuff it up there above the shade - and close the shade.

Are you suggesting that I use one FF and keep the windows open with the assistance of a Endless Breeze type fan that this would provide adequate air movement to cool the TT and if so would it be best to place the FF in the center of the TT to draw air from all directions and be-able to open the front and rear vents when traveling and when not at the TT for any length of time?
*The front and rear vents have the old style Maxx vents on them, if I instal the FF in the center I would replace the other two top vents covers with the newer Maxx vent covers, which allow more air flow, for my original vents. Also the newer Maxx vents are a driect replacement for the older Maxx vents.

Why not take a ride over to Imlay City and talk to Bob Beratta at Fantastic Vent? He will fix you right up, advice and installation. At least give him a call, he is the Airstream specialist and a great guy. They have installed three FF in the past in different models for us.

We removed the Fantastic Fans and replaced with the new MaxxAir Fans. It's the same type of fan, but, with a built-in cover that folds more flush with the top of the trailer. When open it provides it's own rain shelter. They were very easy to install, and fit the standard opening. The only glitch is the one for the bathroom because it's on the curve of the roof...it is a bit more difficult to open because of the resistance created when the frame tweaked across the curve of the roof.
Weather permitting, we open the front window and use the fan in the bedroom to draw the air through the trailer. This only works if the air outside the window is comfortably cool.
Also, the fans work great when cooking since they move large volumes of air very quickly. Just remember to open a window when using the fan.
These fans will work to move air in or out, as well as thermostat control.
