I have bug screens on the Ultrabreeze and it still performs better than my Maxx Air did.

One of these days, when I'm real bored, I'm going to get this out...

http://www.amazon.com/Ambient-Weathe...t+weather+wm-2

...and measure wind speed, both pushing in and pulling out, with the MaxxAir II on and off, and answer this OLD question once and for all.

I bought it for balancin my stick house A/C registers, but should provide some good info for this question as well.

Interesting. The video is helpful. I did notice that there seems to be a small gap between the cover and the roof because of the 4 brackets. Is this big enough to let bugs through, even if I add the bug-screen? If so, what would solve this - some silicone sealant?

Also - do the black covers look ridiculous on an Airstream. I'm thinking of one for the bedroom. I'm a bat when it comes to sleep.

Don't silicone them down. You'll need to clean inside them once in awhile. The screens aren't really for bugs, theres a screen on the FF for that. The screens keep out leaves and big trash. The gap around the base doesn't really let in a lot of trash.
