Optional Fans?

Seriously considering ordering an 821FKBSS . In need of some thoughts from the experienced. The unit would have a bathroom fan. If I added another fan would it be best to put it in living/kitchen area or bedroom area or both (add two more fans)? I am wondering about noise level. At night I could run fan in living area creating a draft through bedroom window and the opposite for day. Thought this would keep noise away from where I was. Yes, it will have an ac but plan to be camping away from utilities. Intend to eventually put solar on roof so the less obstructions the better.
Any thoughts about ordering fans? Thanks.

Those fans are pretty load IMO for bedroom use.

IMO I would put it in the living area .

I have a 2009 831FKBSS and only have the Fantastick fan in the bathroom. This fan will move lots of air in the trailer and IMO, you will not need another fan. One of the great features of this trailer is the cross ventilation when you open the windows, and in conjunction with the BR vent fan, there will be lots of air moved within the trailer.

I replaced the bathroom fan with a Fantastic fan and it works well. You can really feel the breeze with a open window. An second fan would be overkill for my size trailer but I do use a small table top fan during summer months.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
