One of the first modifications to my RV was Vent Covers.. I think I have Camco's on the bathroom vents and I have a Fantastic On the Fantastic Fan

No problems with either covers now.

Could be worse
When I was in Vegas a couple flew in. the dealer picked 'em up at the airport and gave 'em keys to a brand new Class C.. the vent cover did not last 24 hours nor the Winegard Flying Saucer... (Accident damage) . They tried to park in a garage and the chained height limit pipe caught the flying saucer rippped it off then flew up and down onto the vent cover smashing it.


Home is where I park it.

Looked up that Turbo model. Never heard of it before being new to trailers. What do you like about it?


# 1
You have the vent open and rain cannot get in.
# 2
It has a nice fan in it that is 3 speed and reservable. It also has a thermostat.
# 3
You can have the vent lid open while driving with no harm to the lid.
# 4
The fan motor and blades are at the far end, which make it quieter.

MaxxAir/MaxxFan 1200T does a fine job of protecting the roof vent covers, problem is they are no longer made. Sure like one even a good used one.

Yes, that is the one. But they, Al's RV don't have one.

In 2015 we traded our mh in on a new mh and didn't know that the 1200T was no longer available or I would have removed the one that I had put on the old mh.
