Fantastic Fans

I have done some searching but could not find the answer. Does the 29HFS come with Fantastic Fans? I thought I saw them at the camper show before I ordered my. Just don't remember. I will be calling the dealer but wanted to check with people on the forum as well.

Thank you for your replies...

Ours is a 2014 and does not have those fans. The vent in the garage is impossible to reach if you are not over 6ft tall, but there is a extendable pole you can buy to help you open the vents. I'm short so I cant reach any of the vents in the camper but my hubby and children are over 6ft and have no problem. The bathroom vent does have a fan, but it's not a Fantastic fan.

You def want them as they have nice remotes that control them to eliminate the out of reach situation....

Taken,
Did you also get the vent covers as well? I will be checking on these as well next week when my dealer is back in the office. He is out of town at a camper show and I don't need to bug him right now about it.

I have three vent covers here that I will install when I get the rig home. It's very easy. Get them on Amazon... Just a note. Don't get the matching Fantastic Vent branded covers. They are advertised as having much better flow than the competition. While this may be true, they accomplish this by using a much coarser screen on the outlet area. This keeps out bugs and debris but doesn't keep the rain out which is the main reason I have the covers. The Camco and Maxair units will completely keep out rain and water. I've had them on two previous trailers on which I left the vents open all season unless the AC was on. They've been towed in downpours and even were open during a hurricane one year and not a drop of water in the RV due to the screen design. The Fantastic Vent brand covers allow rain in during even the lightest of storms...
