Anybody tried this

http://www.campingworld.com/includes...r%20manual.pdf

My concern, will I need to remove screws that hold the existing vent to the roof? This will probably require removing caulk, removing 4 screws, mounting vent cover, reinstalling screws, applying Dicor/caulk over the screw heads and around.

I have a Create-a-Breeze fan in my bathroom.

Am I misunderstanding how this mounts?

What say you?

You are misunderstanding. These come with 4 "L" brackets, drill in the vertical lip of the vent, no need to remove anything. Takes about 30 minutes for the first one. After that about 20 or less.

Timex- I put the Ultra Breeze in my unit this summer over the vent with the fan. I liked it so much I'm going to put one over the vent above the bed next summer.

Since you have a Create-A-Breeze vent already, you are exactly correct on the installation. The only hard part (and it wasn't hard) is to find the 4 screws you need to remove. You will peel off the Dicor and find the first screw. Once you find the first screw, finding the other 3 is quick work. Take out the 4 old screws, mount the brackets with the new screws and then cover everything with Dicor self leveling. The Dicor has to be flat enough to mount the cover to the brackets, but it wasn't a problem. Attach the cover and you are done.

Windrider is far more experienced than I am, but this vent cover does not have "L" brackets. It has flat brackets. You remove the 4 old screws. You do not have to drill anything.

I kept my vent open most of the summer and never had any rain problems. Worked well.

I've seen the video on the Ultra Breeze covers and wondered if they were different than the MaxAir II. The MaxAirII mount to the verticle vent frame with the L-brackets. If the Ultra Breeze allow more air movement than the MaxAirII, then that's what I would want. Right? Or are they the same?

looking at the instructions that you provided,it looks as though you are correct. you will be removing 4 of the screws that hold the original vent to the roof.although,i would only remove enough caulk to remove and replace those 4 screws. recaulk after you install the screws and brackets.

I doubt that there is much difference. The sales video is good though. It sure makes it look like more air is passing through. I chose the Ultra Breeze because it matched the Create A Breeze vent and was very easy to install in the existing holes.

Camping World. Don't remember what I paid for it. That was back in May.
It is a little more expensive then the generic Camping World vent cover.

Timex,

I put one of these on my fan cover about 3 weeks ago. Yes it does mount different than the other types of covers, you do need to remove 4 screws and replace them with new screws that come with it. The new screws also hold the 4 mounting brackets with slip pins that hold the cover in place and allow easy removal for cleaning under the cover. When I got mine they were on sale for $49, plus I got a tube of dicor. Very easy install and I'm happy with it...

Here is a video on this cover. It does not compare it's self to the fan cover Max-Air makes. Which I think would be a better comparison.
Ultra Breeze Vent Cover from Fan-Tastic Vent - YouTube

I was in a CW a few months ago and had my hands on their brand of cover. Almost bought it but decided I would do a little more studying on the subject. I've read the reviews on the different websites but still can't make up my mind.

Is the CW brand in comparison to Ulta Breeze, MaxAir? Or is there no comparison, one is better than the other? And will I be limited by having the Create-a-Breeze fan in the vent to the one I choose? Or that doesn't have anything to do with it?
