SO I have decided to replace the dinky vent fan in the bathroom (the only fan in the trailer). I am looking at two products, the first is the MaxxFan Deluxe all in one vent fan with rain shield:
Airxcel | Maxxair | Maxxfan
The second candidate is the Fantastic Fan 4000R :FanTastic Vent - Product - Model 4000
plus their ultrabreeze rain shield:
The Maxx Fan Deluxe is around 240 shipped. The distinct advantage to this model is that is a much lower profile design which should not only look better going down the road but be slightly more aerodynamic. They also claim you can leave it open going down the road, but I see no reason you could not with the Fantastic Fan plus Ultra Breeze. The cons are that is more expensive, has features I will not use and I question just how much air it can move with a much smaller opening.
The Fantastic Fan is of course what everyone knows, and is rated at a higher volume (925 vs 900 SCFM). However, you loose some efficiency with the Ultra Breeze, but not much. The combo is about $200 shipped, so a savings of 40 bucks. Plus Fantastic seems to be the most recommended brand of fan out there.
Any suggestions or thoughts?
