We are deciding between Extreme Vents and Cyclone Whirlybirds. Do not see much difference except price. Anyone have any experience with the Xtreme Vents?

We have used the Extreme vent for years. The biggest difference is in the construction of the unit. The Extreme Vent has an actual bushing on the swivel and the Cyclone is all plastic.

We have the cyclone on both of our vents for about a year now with no issues and the smells have completely gone away also under all conditions.

Now one that helped me make the decision was CW put the cyclone on sale buy one get one free! So basically 1/2 price, I think I paid around $20 for them both.

Has anyone tried a "360 RV Vent Cap"? I'm ready to try a vent and I've never heard of them. They have some pretty convincing info at their website, but doesn't everyone?

We have the extreme vent, purchased at WalMart and has worked flawlessly for a couple of years....

I replaced the swivel-type vents on our black and gray tanks after a bent shaft caused one to seize in one position. The new vent caps are the RV360 and IMO these work better than what I had before.

Hi All.

We have had ours for several years now, and love them. You will too, "No Moving Parts", and a very low profile.

We also had the other Brand also, and never had any issues with it either. But given a choice, we think the 360 works even better.

Good Luck. Happy Travels. Dan & Jill
