Fan-tastic Fan installation

Does any one know if the Fan-tastic Fan requires an Airstream specific mount to properly fit the curvature of the roof or does the standard catalog fan fit properly?

I just seem to recall reading somewhere that they make a special mount and trim just for Airstream.

You would need to contact Fantastic, but they do make a trim piece just for airstreams and if I remember correctly they will send it to you for free.

What are you doing with your old roof vents when you change fans? I am looking for A/S rood vent units to repair my units (the ones with the built-in skylight).

I am also looking for new or used Lindeen vent covers to add to my trailer.

Fantastic fan trim

I had a Fantastic Fan installed in my former '60 Overlander at the International Rally last summer. They found the Airstream specific trim was not needed on mine. Perhaps the roofline was flatter then.

After visiting the rally we travelled in extremely hot weather and found the FF was great for air circulation. Their suggestion is to have the fan set on exhaust and keep all the windows closed except for a slightly open window at the furthest point from the fan. (hopefully in the shade) When we tried it you can feel the air current as the fan draws cool air into your unit. They said you could not cool it as effectively with many windows open.

On the other hand if you are driving down a dusty road a few miles you can have the fan draw air into your unit and create positive pressure to avoid dust entering the unit. If you do it they cautioned that the fan vent was fully open so the cover is rigid. When the vent is only partially open it will "flap" in the wind and could be damaged.
