Oh well. New project.
That's exactly how ours came. 2 fans, but only a cover on the bathroom vent.

I'm guessing maybe they figure they need to give you one cover in the bathroom because they recommend always venting that if the shower is in use, or just in geneneral to prevent condensation and you wouldn't be able to vent it in the rain.

My advice is to pay the extra for hinged cover!
The fan below will get grungy in a couple years and you will need to
remove the cover to clean underneath.
Hinges are a great "option".

and Happy Camping!

BTW- installing a maxxair cover is easy DIY job.
Hint. Dealers and many of us use sheet metal screws to install the
brackets rather than the screws and nuts that are included. It's easier
that way.

FYI, my Maxxair covers are held on w/ 4 cotter pins. Comes off in seconds, no hinge necessary.

AWESOME!
I must have the early versions. I have to take out screws to get them
up and off for cleaning.

Funny, mine is only a year old, but I just looked at their website to find a picture, and this years model looks like it has hinges! Or rather, they changed the pin orientation so that if you pull 2, the other 2 act like hinges.

Progress...gotta love it!

If the fan is a Create-a-Breeze, you can get by with a standard cover (what we have). You don't need to spend the big bucks for a MaxxAir cover.

My 2013 23ss came with two fans, one cover on the bathroom fan. I had the dealer install a second cover a couple of months ago when the Roo was in the shop for repairs (front bed door).
