The FF install is very straight forward, same roof opening, 12v power is already there, and all you need is sealant. If you wait a year or 2 to step up to the FF and then make the decision, you will regret the delay. They work and are a great way to cool your RV without running the A/C.

Install an upgraded fan first and then a cover. Essential mod.

Agree with everyone I just replaced my bathroom fan on my new 29rks with a maxxair with remote and put the fanmate over it as it has molded clips to intall or remove takes 2 minutes. Now I am also a fan of the fantastic fan as that is what I have had for 5 years in my custom sleeper on my semi, though the remote is not as user friendly as the maxxair ( a 5 year on can understand how to operate it), and I like the twin arms.

I removed the original fan and installed the vortex fan. It installs in the original opening without the need to break any of the original roof seals. It wasn't that bad to install. This spring im adding the Maxx air ii. I totally forgot about the stink-pipe clearance. Now im nervous it won't fit.

Save your money on the hinged cover.. I cannot see any use for that.... Just another way to separate a camper from his money
(OK that is a generic his)

It costs no more and if you ever get a leaf under there, it will drive you nuts rattling around. When they first came out a hinge kit was $8.00.. Now it's std.

I put a Maxx 2 on my trailer and also on my parents' 26BH. I like being able to open it up and clean underneath, and also easily and quickly inspect the caulking underneath that it covers when closed.

It is possible to install it without drilling any holes into your roof as well, as this seems like the logical way to do it. It can be mounted to the aluminum vent hole shroud and essentially hovers overtop of the roof, attached only to the metal raised lip of the vent hole.

Also - which Fantastic Fan model are you guys swapping into your Jay Flights? It seems like there are multiple models...
