Advice needed on a fan

I want to put a fan into the rear bunk area for our daughter. I am thinking 12v so we can use it no matter what (dry camping or hooked up). I did a search and found some older threads talking about the pop up bunk light / fans. how do they work? do they throw air pretty good? Also what other options might you all use.

I am just looking to move some air to keep the area from getting stuffy. Our lights do not have the headphone jack plugs on them but I am sure I can easily swap them out if need be. Thanks

-Pat

Having had both a Rockwood pop-up and hybrid we use those extensively. They do move quite a bit of air and keep the bunk ends from getting stuffy. The fan has two speeds, on high it makes some noise but not overly so to me.

Our popup curiously came with 4 tent end fan/lights. When we traded it in for our hybrid the dealer said to keep 2 because the hybrid only came with one for the front tent end. Our hybrid had 2 more tent ends for the kids, one off each side in the rear. The kids tent ends had lights but no 1/4" jacks so I went to Radio Shack and bought some. Cheaper that a whole new light fixture and about 10 minutes worth of work. I just tapped into power before the switch.

Thank you both for your help. They did just seem the best solution... I looked at 12v fan on Amazon and they all had pretty bad reviews.
