Have any of you guys found a decent electric oscillating fan that can be mounted on the wall? I mean something that is relatively compact, and will put out a decent breeze?

Thank you!


Best Regards,....marc & joan

Have seen some at my dentist office but never anywhere for sale. I have been looking for one to mount in our 5er instead of the regular fan that I sit on the counter or table and I am always moving because it is in the way.

Got mine at Walmart.Before you buy, choose the location for installation,I keep mine at the far end, this gives me good circulation and less noise.

If you are looking for 12v your best bet is a truck stop. Many big rigs use 12v wall mount fans in the cab.

Many years ago, we found a small 110 volt fan at WalMart, or someplace like that, that had a squeeze clip for portable mounting to many surfaces. It has been used in 2 boat cabins and it is now on its second travel trailer. All plastic and easy to clean. Just took the squeeze clip off and mounted it to a stud with a wood screw. It doesn't oscillate, but we keep it pointed toward the ceiling and it keeps the air moving nicely.

They are available at JC Whitney. A more efficient type would be a conventional computer fan since they draw milliamps but I've never seen one that occilates.

I found this one at camping world on sale about six months ago so I got two of them. They have a cloth type fan blade and are very quiet. We hang them upside down by the stand via a hook on the wall.

I just saw that there is a vornado under the cabinet style one. too.

We take that little black fan (and it is little... stands 8" tall, maybe but it is HEAVY.) anyway, we set it on the dash and use it to keep the condensation cleared off while we are driving and when we are setting still. Plugs into 110 outlet.
