We have a 35' bunkhouse with 4 vent locations. There is a vent in the front bedroom, one in the main cabin, and a third in the rear bunkhouse. The fourth is a fantastic fan in the bathroom.

I've picked up 2 MaxxAir covers and am trying to decide where to mount them. I will put one in the rear bunkhouse. I can't decide if the other should go in the main cabin or the front bedroom. I'd like to put it up front so that the cross-ventilation covers the entire rig, but I'm worried that the bedroom wall would interrupt too much of the flow (air could only flow through the two door). If I put it mid-cabin, however, the bedroom won't get any of the ventilation flow. I don't want to cover every vent, so I want to keep it to just the two (at least for now).

So, thoughts? Where would you locate them?

Buy 2 more or put it over the Fantastic fan so you can run it when it rains.


This post is my opinion (free advice). It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

Why not cover every vent? Helps cut down on heat, keep them open more often, helps keep the vent covers from damage.

Unfortunately, we don't run our fantastic fan much. It was installed in the bathroom (right above the toilet), so every time someone uses the toilet when its running, it sucks the stink right from the black tank when the toilet is flushed.

That's the problem. Turn the fan off when using the toilet. Turn it back on after flushing only after the flapper is closed.

If you want to cover the Fantastic Fan vent you should get the cover made for the fan. It provides more venting area than the standard covers. I believe Maxair still handles them.
