I was saying that the MaxxAir II is larger than the MaxxAir. According to the brochure it has almost twice as much vent area. But it does require drilling holes in the side of the fan base. Not sure if that could be a potential issue?

Since you have both sizes, do you recommend one over the other?
Thanks.

I have had both MaxxAir and Maxxair II. The II model is DEFINITELY better as far as airflow goes. I would not consider the regular model.

Maxxair II has more ventilating area and some of that wraps around, so I like that and the styling better. It also comes with hinges and pins to easily tilt it up for cleaning.

Thanks to all for your replies and advice. I think I will wait it out to get the MaxxAir II. I will give it a bit longer to try and find the Grey or Silver. Barring that , white will work.

Hello gandttimes , we passed through your beautiful town and your neck of the woods on our way home from Alaska and The Yukon in 13 . We went with the black vent cover over the bedroom just before heading up to the land of the midnight sun to facilitate sleeping where there mostly is no darkness at night .

Does UPS deliver up there or does it wind up in the hands of the Canadian postal service ?

Maxx Air

I installed two of the Maxx Air (not Maxx Air II) covers (white) on our camper last year.
I think we paid $25 each at Camping World in Springfield Missouri.
Best. Thing. Ever.
Vents always open, trailer interior doesn't get stuffy or damp. Bonus: if you ever forgot to close a vent before traveling, that is no longer a problem with the Maxx Air covers. Just leave your vents open...
Also, the white covers do let a lot of light in at night if there is lighting outside. Easy fix: cut a piece of the foil insulation that we use in windows to keep the sun from heating up the trailer interior to the size of your vent opening, cut a small slot in it to facilitate getting around the crank handle and you now have a dark bedroom again. Easy to take off and put on.

Depends what UPS you mean. Mr Brown delivers up here, but I think it's more the size than anything.
Customs isn't a problem as I think these are US made.
Even on the Amazon.ca site they are over $80.
Trying another source up here where I know someone.

I have the white MaxxAir II vent cover over the Fantastic Fan. The vent cover allows the fan cover to open fully. Many times people think it a third a/c unit.

Amazon.ca has the covers. You can get free delivery by joining the Prime membership then all you have to do is cancell it before the 30 days is up. They have smoke coloured ones

Fantastic Vents Open 60 mph

I know the original purpose here was to leave the vents open in rain, and for that a vent cover is very necessary!

But just wanted to clarify that Fantastic Vents are rated to 90 mph! I found this out when I contacted the manufacturer to check how the would work as we were beginning the customization of our Sprinter tow vehicle for our 28' Airstream. He actually shared with me that they are wind tunnel tested to hurricane wind speeds, and don't have a problem until around 120 mph, at which point the plastic distorts, but doesn't break, and springs back afterward to normal shape (just in case you were planning on towing your Airstream over 100 mph :-)

Because we're windsurfers, we actually seek out high wind areas. Our biggest challenge with the wonderful vents are when we have a camping spot that forces us to face downwind. They are definitely NOT designed to have a high wind blow underneath the vent cover when the wind blows hard from the back of the trailer!

But no worries about leaving the vents open for ventilation purposes while towing. Pouring rain is quite another issue!
