Installing a vent cover over a fantastic fan

I installed vent covers on all 4 standard vents on my trailer and they work great. I would like to intall another over the fantasic fan in the bathroom but the fan housing is plastic. All the other standard vents have a metal flang that you attached the bracket to but the FF has plastic. What would be the best way to attach? Not sure if it would be strong enough if I did it the way the others were done.

I mounted a max air II to my fantastic fan vent and mounted the same . Albeit I had to remove inner screen and flange to install nuts and bolts .
Took about 15 minutes longer than others.

As a side note I believe they recommend a max air III for fantastic vents for air flow but I think mines just fine Imo.

Max air II over my fan-tastic in bathroom and bedroom.

I just drilled into the plastic but put a piece of tape on the drill bit so I could gauge how deep into the housing it penetrated.

I can't remember exactly, but I think it was just screws....

Take the fan speed knob off
Take the screen and inner plate down
Drill holes from outside
Push tthrough bolts and install nuts.
Didn't go through any plastic

-Just a side note here folks.....We bought 5 vent covers from Camping world on sale (haven't installed yet though) and THEY mimick the Max Air IIs pretty well-have the vents on the sides as well but way cheaper than the Max Air IIs

BTW, Thanks for the info here about installing a cover over a fantastic fan!!

I just installed the Fantastic vent that is designed specifically for the Fantastic fan, it works well and has very good air flow, no restrictions. It just came on the market not too long ago I believe.
