I have the MaxxAire covers on all 4 of my vents. They are worth their weight in gold.

No problems with rain getting in if I leave the vents open. can also open the vents while traveling without wind damage to the vent covers.

First thing we do is put max air covers on every rig we have owned. When hail breaks everything on the roof the max airs are still perfect. We also leave the vents open when towing with no problems.

I have black fan-tastic Ultra breeze on front and rear fans. Basic fan-tastic fan in front that came with the rig and Maxx-aire in back over the bed. Black covers minimize the sun light shing thru in the morning

First trip out, I installed the 3 MaxAir II's on my Sunseeker. I can keep the vents open while traveling. Took maybe an hour to install all three.

MaxAir covers are Standard on Rockwood and Flagstaff units! The Factory really does Listen to US! Just some are "Hard of Hearing"! Youroo!! These are display units at Goshen Rally last year!

Fan-tactic vent and MaxxAir covers have been on all my RVs. Great stuff.

We've had MaxxAir II's on our last 3 campers. Agree with what everybody said about the advantages. Fan-Tastic vent covers are taller so you can open the roof vents more but they are more expensive.

The MaxAire11's are easier to flip in order to clean. If you go with a Maxaire 1 still pretty simple but you will need to bring a wrench up with you..the 11's are just a cotter pin you pull...the 11's also allow for a bit more air movement...I installed both and prefer the 11's and they are just a few bucks more.

Max-Air (Max-Air II) or Fan-Tastic Vent cover

Looking at installing a couple of MaxAir II's on our unit. Where's the best place to purchase them from?
