Isn't the outside frame of the Fantastic fan made out of plastic? If installing the Max Aire11 it attaches to the side frame of the vent which I prefer to removing some caulk with the Fantastic vent cover, but with the frame being made of plastic I wouldn't want to attach the vent cover in that fashion.

I use Fan-tastic Ultrabreeze vent cover, super easy to install and clean.

I tend to prefer the Ultrabreeze as well just based on their video with regards to air flow restriction, but just not crazy about removing screws and caulk and having to re-caulk on a brand new trailer, but maybe I just need to suck it up and do it.

Agree 100%. Never go without these, fit all 3 of my fantastic fans

I use the cheapo (19.99) Camco covers from WallyWorld on my Fantastic fans. Easiest to install. Just crowd them to the rear of the rv to clear.

When installing the MaxAire2 on the Fantastic Fan....the curb on the fan is made of plastic...no problem drilling the screws into there for the mounting brackets? Some fans have a curb with a metal flange but the Fantastic fan is plastic.
