jmencel, did you put this Camco vent cover on your Fantastic Fan? That's totally inappropriate for a high volume fan like the Fantastic Fan. Those videos on YouTube that you're talking about show what this cover will do to air flow from your Fantastic Fan. Even the MaixAir II would be a better choice than this Camco cover. The ones that mark0224 and Timex have are the best covers for a Fantastic Fan.

This Camco cover is only good for vents without and fan.

Use Fantastic Vent covers.

Get the Fantastic vent covers as shown in Timex's reply to this question. The Fantastic covers allow the installed fantastic vents to open higher, thus you get a better air flow. We have three of these on my rig which has three fantastic vents.

I have three of these

Very easy to install, keep rain from entering even when driving, attach to the side of the vent (Maxx Air and Fantastic) not to the roof, good crossventilation due to space between the bottom of the cover and the roof.
They are not cheap but the best covers I ever owned and can be transferred to another rv without leaving holes in the roof.

I'm looking at "unbreakable" ones on Amazon, but not sure if they are the right type. The bathroom vent has a fan and the lever that raises the cover is on the side. The other 2 have the lever slide in the center. With rain in the forecast the next couple of days, I don't want to take them off until I have the new ones in hand. Does anybody have any words of wisdom about hinge style, etc. that I need to look for on this 2004? Thanks!
When you say vent covers, are you referring to the lid for the opening or the cover that goes over the whole thing. I can testify to the sturdiness of mine. One time our site was under a pine tree and 1 of those big green pine cones fell during a storm at night and hit the vent cover. I had no idea what had hit us but there was no mistake about the sound. It didn't even leave a scratch! If the vent cover had not have been there, that pine cone most assuredly would have gone thru that thin hatch lid and into the bed with us!

Now why don't they make the whole roof out of this material?

On my second trailer and my second set of Maxx Air II covers. The II cover will fit over the Fantastic Fan as well as the non power ventaled vents. I have black because my a/c units are black but if everything else is white on your roof--I would go white. All a matter of personal choice.

I can't quite tell what covers those are from the picture. Can you please share details? Thanks.

Cypressloser's covers are the MaxxAir Fan/Mate. They're made for high volume fans. They work great on the previous gen Fantastic Fan - I installed one on my 2010 Roo and on my current 2011 Rockwood - but some are reporting they don't install as well on the latest version of the Fantastic Fan?

Ultra Breeze

We've had the Max Air and they didn't allow the Fantastic Fan to open fully. We're having the Ultra Breeze installed, made by Fantastic Fan, that is supposed to allow full opening.
