Fantastic Fans

We are upgrading the 87 34' Excella we recently purchased. Fantastic fans have been recommended. Would you put one in front and back or just one fantastic fan and one regular fan. Also, do the fantastic fans have lights in the base like the current fans which came on it?

My 1993 34' airstream classic limited trailer has a fantastic in the rear bedroom and one just forward on the kitchen area.
I hope this helps you.

Go with two.

If you are going with Fantastic Fans, make sure you get the models that can reverse so that you can either select intake or exhaust. Thay way you can set one in the exhaust direction and the other in the intake direction and create a nice air flow through the Airstream.

You might also check with Camping World, they carry another brand which has a remote control.

Fan-Tastic Vents (Fantastic Fans) now carries the 6600 model which has a remote control as well as the rain sensor. Looks to be a very cool unit.

They do no have lights built into them. I think most people who has a oem unit with the light built into the fan just add a seperate light fixture like those Thin Lites florescent fixtures right next to the fan installation.

Two fans (front & back) work well since you can push with one and pull with the other. Also; save yourself some money. Get the Fantastic Fans without the rain sensor (pricey) and put Maxi-Vents over both fans. That way you can leave them both open to let your trailer breath - even in storage or when moving.
