Our bed in the slide out. So, I picked up a clip on fan similar to the link below and clip it right over my wife's face on the slide out frame. Works great and I can adjust it so that it blows on my bride (and not me) as she goes thru that special time in life when she has times when she needs some extra cooling occassionally. LOL

On my old rig I had 2 Fantastic endless breeze fans ran with 12v extension cords to a battery box. I just picked up a new EVO 2850 and I am going to clip fans to the window valence. The new Evo has "charging stations" next to the outlets. The "charging station" consists of a 12 volt outlet and 2 usb outlets so I will have options of which fans as well as which powering options I want to go with.

My bedroom fan is a Holmes tower 3ft high and the base is 12 inch round base from Walmart. The livingroom is a Lasko 4ft high with a 12 inch round base from Sams Club. Both have remote control. My last unit had a walk-around bed with about 2 to 2 1/2 ft at the foot of the bed. I would place the 3' fan on a rubbermaid single step stool tucked in the corner. I hope this helps.

My wife puts a 6" fan on her night stand about 2" from her face and blows it full blast all night. Thankfully the air never touches me I hate a fan blowing on me

O2COOL 10" Rechargeable Fan

I like the 10" O2Cool fan because of the versatility with power. It has a built in rechargeable battery which can be powered by 120v or 12v adapter. Can also run off of 8 D cell batteries in a pinch (expensive option though). When on shore power the fan will run & recharge and then run off of the battery when shore power is off. Pricey at first but worth it to me.

it is an old fashioned style box fan but you may be able to hang from the handle since you don't have a pedestal.

We use a 24 inch drum fan and set it out in the main area. Keeps air circulating.

We have a power vent fan in the bedroom and I also added a small ceiling fan also. It reverses and works very well for moving the air and so quiet.

Our bedroom we had a vent and upgraded it to a Maxair powered vent and when we turn it to vent out and have another powered vent that we have vent in and creates a good circulation without being noisy and no other moving parts to walk into in the middle of the night.
