Recommendation on replacement fan?

I have a cheap maybe 6" fan in the bathroom vent in my Sunseeker. Does anyone have a recommendation for a fairly cheap fan to replace it with? I am considering a MaxAir or something for the bedroom vent, but want something better in the bathroom in the interim. Is there a drop-in replacement, maybe 3 speed that I can put in?

You can upgrade to a Vortex. They have a single speed and a 3 speed. The best part is they are inexpensive and you get to keep your existing vent/vent cover/lid and all that. As this is replacing an existing fan the wiring is already run. No special tools needed.

Most other fans you rip out the entire vent and replace all of it, spending some time on the roof. Not with this solution.

They do tend to be a bit noisy, but not too bad for a bathroom.

I wrote this about putting one in my living space.


Under $100. Camping World has them, other places too, sometimes cheaper.

Vortex is a great replacement fan

X2 on the Vortex, installed mine three or four years ago. This year added a motor control switch and a thermostat that will turn it on and off if temp goes over 75 degrees and shuts off when temp drops below 75... No issues at all with it.
