Quick update, just went to the dealer the other day to "visit" with the trailer. I realized I had 3 cieling vents + the bathroom fan vent. Originally I thought it was two + one fan. I also realized how much natural light the vents provided. So I placed my order on Amazon, I bought 3 smoked (tinted) MaxxAir II's and 1 white FanMate.
They were available to ship and priced right so I should have them by Friday.

Does anyone seal these? Or are they just screwed to the existing "collar" of the original vent? I know te FanMate has hinges, just hadn't read about the stationary ones it they are also on hinges or just fix mounted.

Please let me know your install experiences so I don't blow it!

I have the Camcos on mine, I asked the dealer should I go with the Camcos are the MaxxAir ll's. The service guy said the Camcos were much easier to clean, just open the back of it and wipe it out, no tools needed. The MaxxAir ll's are hinged, have to undo the locks and swing it open. He said it was not a bad design, just a little more involved. I guess it is a matter of preference. The MaxxAir ll will flow more air.
Take care,
Randy

Hmmm....my Camcos have 2 screws that you have to remove to get to the inside.

Overall, I think the MaxxAir IIs would have more access after you get those puppies open. With the Camcos, you would have to work through the opening to clean.....but who cleans up there regular anyway ??? If I have a bug or leaf on the screen, I "pluck" that puppy with my fingers from the inside until it disappears.

How brutal! Let's hope there are now bug fanatics out there looking to pounce on such cruelty!

Oops, I didn't think about PETA fans out there. But these puppies are dead when I pluck them.

Bugs aren't animals, it's okay to eat them.
