On my original trailer, I definitely went with the MaxAir covers ~ but those were standard 14" X 14" vents. Now I have a 26RR Toy Hauler and the bathroom vent is 18" X something else (I forgot) .. does anyone know which vent cover would fit over that fan? Thanks in advance ~

Maxair vent covers were the first addon for our unit. Not only do they allow vents to remain open while travelling & when it rains but also protect original covers.

Need to replace all 3 of my vent covers

I too covered my vents within a month of ownership
We especially Like the Max Air we put over the Fantastic Fan
After (almost) Two seasons I did a routine cleaning last week
I took the covers off,checked the seals and cleaned the covers as well as the vents and screens.
The covers were filthy but did their job!

Better air flow.

Can you please explain..We have a 2017 2503S on order and we requested an additional max-air fan over the bed. Do we need to replace the covers right away? I thought they come with covers??

Don't blame the engineers; they almost always know better. Blame the bean counters.

They do have covers, but you can't drive with the standard cover up and you have to close it when it rains. The Maxxair covers go over top of the original and allow you to keep the original cover up while driving and when it rains.

If you are going to buy a new cover get the max fan and the Maxxair fan mate the fan comes with tabs to easily connect the cover and the maxfan is amazing you can reverse direction of fan and comes with remote control

Cheap is right! We had our brand new, 2016 FR 26VFKSS stored all last winter, covered. This last spring after we took off the cover, we got a bad hail storm. 2 of the 3 roof vents were broken. The 3rd. vent survived because FR HAD installed a MAXAIR vent cover on that ONE. Why not the other two I thought. So I replaced both vent covers and installed MAXAIR vent covers on those.The only draw back with the MAXAIR is you lose some of the opening height, I think they open about 40% of the original.

Something doesn't seem right about the restriction to opening. My neighbor has the Maxair covers and I have the Fantastic Vent covers. Both restrict the opening, but only by 5% or less.

Teaman here.

Just got a 2013 Sunseeker 2300 in August. It had no vent covers. The vent lids were the cheap kind and were already cracked in places. Also had a few small holes on same side on each, so was apparent hail damaged. Holes were small 1/4 in to 1/2 inches. Rain did not appear to be getting inside tho. I ordered three Maxair vent covers from amazon. I had to hire a mobile RV technician to come out to RV park to install them for me. Paid $100 for service call and installation. I am happy with the vent covers and should now be able to leave vent lids open during rainy weather. Also no more worries of hail damage or destruction of dry brittle vent lids.

Camped in Colorado in a TT one Summer. Had vent covers on all vents. Had a bad hailstorm come across one day. The vent covers protected my TT vent lids from damage, while the neighbor's TT, his vent lids were completely destroyed. He had water damage inside from the storm too. Vent covers are peace of mind.
