No Bathroom Vent!

Apologies for my all around newness. New to Forest River, Prime Time and the forum! I purchased a 2013 Tracer 215air at the end of the summer last year and I am very much so looking forward to using it. I love just about everything about it. There is one thing that has me completely stumped - why would they not include a bathroom ceiling vent/fan? Has anyone ever run into this problem? I don't think I've ever seen a TT without one!
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to handle the steam from the huge shower if there is no vent?

Thanks!!

Looked up that mfg/model for 2013. The factory ad clearly states there is supposed to be a power vent in the bath space. I believe all residential enclosures for both bath and kitchen spaces are required by various building codes to install a method. Time to call the dealer.

Vent in bathroom

I put a fantastic fan (w/rain sensor) and noticed one major draw back with this bathroom configuration, running the fan to suck out the air will also suck the air from the toilet while flushing... Otherwise, put in a fan...

Are you sawing there is no hole in the ceiling for a vent or there isn't a powered vent?

Yes / No.......................... Building codes do not cover travel trailers / RVs. Even building codes do not require a vent in a bathroom if there is a window.
