Adding max air vents

I'm wanting to add these to my camper. The bathroom is a fantastic fan and I wonder if these will work? The rear in 16 xlr 305 is regular vent so I know it will wrk and I plan on getting a 2nd act his summer so no need for the master bedroom. One question, my ac is black and I'd like black but is it too dark? Should I just stay with white. A lot of light comes in now. Thanks

For the fantastic fan you could use the Maxxair 2. If you do not what black you could go with the smoke finish.

Max air II Fan mates for all vents is what you want.
I got black.
Smoke might be a better option for you.

I'd recommend the standard Maxxair cover for the regular vent and the Fanmate for the Fantastic fan. The standard cover is available in a smoke and black, and the Fanmate is available in black (model 950).

x2 on the Max Air ll ! We have the black a/c cover and went with the white Max Air ll covers for the extra light factor. Plus screens are included Not sure if you can see them in my signature picture.
No matter where you go, there you are!

I had smoke on a previous unit and it was not as bright as the white but still was not as dark as I would have liked. I just last week installed black covers 1- fanmate for kitchen/living room area and 2- maxx-air II for bath and bed areas in my newest unit. Myself I prefer the black. I do admit retiring after working 30 plus years of graveyard shift and sleeping during daylight hours may make a difference to my taste also.

I agree with the MaxxAir II for the vent positions. I have black. I don't see the need for more light as my rig has plenty of windows for that. I also like the quick release pin feature that allows you to pull a couple pins and hinge open for cleaning/inspection or quick removal using no tools.

The MaxxAir's would work for the Fantastic fan but I recently seen a test video from Fantastic Fan comparing air flow of their cover (to other brands) and theirs flowed the most air.

We have 3 Maxxair II covers and like the features and little extra ventilation. We have white, but that's a preference. I believe they carry a 5 yr. warranty.
