Maxxair vent covers

Anyone have any experience with these?
Need to replace the crusty old Lindeen and am wondering if the Maxxair allow full extension of the roof vents...(no fans, just vents).

Thanx, Bill

Hi Bill,

I had these on my MoHo to cover the Fanastic Fans so I could use them in the rain. The DO NOT allow the fan (or vent) cover to open completely, but they do open to at least a 45* tilt, which was fine for my FF's.

I now have 2 MaxxFans on the CCD that I can use in any weather! Great device that folds flat to the roof when not in use..............

There are special Max Air Vent covers that work on Airstream vertically rising vents. They have a slightly different shape and are more money than the standard Max Airs. I have one on my 77 front vent so I can leave the vent partially open when the unit is in storage and I do not have to worry about the rain getting in. It works great and I do not think it adds much wind drag going down the highway.

Dwight-got a part # or source? I could not find any that look like they will accomodate the vertical rising vents on our 89'...

lew, these are not the new/angled style...sorry I should have elaborated.
