vent cover

I want to add a vent cover to my one that didn't come covered. The bathroom has a cover but the main room does not. Which vent cover should I go with?

If you have just a standard vent and are looking for a vent cover that sits on the roof, I installed a Maxx-Air 2
Looks nice, lots of ventilation and hinged for easy cleaning.

Maxx-Air 2 is nice and that is what I am leaning towards for the bathroom. I do want to change out the living/kitchen to a power vent, and not sure what I want for that, yet.

Is the main room vent fan a FantasticFan or other high powered fan? You might want to consider a FanMate cover. Link: Fan/Mate | Latest.
Made by the same company that makes the MaxxAir II but provides a bit more screened exhaust surface area. More expensive but just as easy to install.

I have the Maxx Air II on both of my vents. I have been thinking about changing my front vent to a fantastic fan but, not sure if it worth doing.

I have a fantastic fan with Maxx air covers on both the fantastic fan and the vent with no fan. I have found that the fantastic fan will pull a huge amount of air through our 2306. With the vent up front and the fantastic fan in the back bathroom if you turn the fantastic fan on with the front vent open it will pull a draft through the camper that will blow paper off the dinette.

I have covers going on both fans in my 21SS which I pick up tomorrow. I believe they are the Maxxair brand but will check it out and let you know after bringing it home.
