MaxxFan has anyone used these?

Seems like a good deal:

I think the MaxxFan Deluxe is more popular and solves the problem that many really face, and that is having a vent fan that can be used regardless of weather. Otherwise you will still need a vent fan cover.

My Airstream Interstate came equipped with a MaxxFan Deluxe, as linked by Xipper.

It doesn't leak even in a howling thunderstorm, whether open or closed, whether the Airstream is parked or in motion. That alone makes the difference in price between the Standard and Deluxe models worthwhile, in my opinion.

Love ours....

I'm a simple person, I like low-tech solutions, but even our MaxxFan Deluxe with the reversible fan, included rain cover and thermostat impresses me. It's pretty quiet too. The ability to go up and down in fan speed is wonderful. We installed two in 25 footer and have no regrets. Did not get the one with the remote. No regrets.

That is a great price. Have 2 in our 34' and they lessen the use of the A/C quite a lot. Not a hard job to install, and I suggest that you look at purchasing the LED lights that surround them. Easier to install both at the same time.

We replaced the two Fantastic Fans in our 30' and added a third where a simple vent was with the Deluxe model. Absolutely love them and love the ceiling fan feature, especially at night. Very similar to a ceiling fan at home.

I just bought a 4500, haven't installed it yet. Definitely good bang for the buck. Got about the same price with 2 day shipping on Amazon. I'm adding to second fan to a vent without a fan. My other one is a more basic maxxfan which has been in use almost continuously for over a year with no issues. I have clearance issues so the deluxe wouldn't fit for me.

+1 on the maxxfan deluxe. I have a manual opening one in the front and a remote controlled one over my bed. Love to run them in the rain with impunity.

One of the first mods I do is to replace the FF fans with MaxxAirs. Big improvement.

I replaced my OEM center fan with a Maxxair deluxe and added a Maxxair deluxe to the back bedroom in my 310.

Awesome fans, fairly quiet and will move a wack of air, especially if you have one bringing air in, and one taking it out.

The only down fall to a Maxxair, is they do not come with an insulated cover for the interior when you are camping in cooler climes. Since technically they are open to the outside all the time, any stored heat during the day goes right out the vent, wether you want it to or not. It one of this winters mods to make an insulated cover for the opening. I'm thinking rare earth magnets to hold it in place.

Cheers
Tony
