Plenty of clip-on 12VDC fans from the truckers' side of things.

Based on their exhaust fan performance, consider this...

Robot Check

That is Amazon. I'm sure they are available at CW and other places.

I have one of those Fantastic fans and it's performance is impressive. I usually open a window on the shade side of the trailer and open the vents and it kept our TT comfortable. We still ran the AC when it got real warm. They are quiet too. We just picked up a 29mv class c and I need to wire in a 12 volt outlet, but it will work well there too.

Here is what we use to circulate the TT's air. I purchased (2) - 2 speed adjustable 10 inch portable table top fans. I had a few 12VDC accessory plugs and wired them into the fans and they work great. At night we use 1 to circulate the air in the lower bunk area when the AC is not on.

Works GREAT!!

If you do not wire in the 12VDC plug, it takes 8 "D" batteries and lasts only a couple days.

We got a regular house current high volume fan, and plug it into the inverter when we're boon-docking or just driving in high heat. It works great, and we don't have to worry about a separate 12v appliance.

NOTE: There are many posts on the forums regarding how to modify the cab-over inverter outlet so that it functions when the motorhome engine is running.

I have a couple of those O2COOL 10-inch fans from WALMART/LOWES/AMAZON. these are 120V/12VDC/D-CELLS

Puts out a good air flow and whisper quiet...

These are also great sitting behind our OIL-FILLED Portable 120VAC Heaters we use.

We have one of those, it's outstanding. Quiet, moves a lot of air, doesn't draw a lot of power.

Darn... I probably searched/purchased mine (without 12VDC/120VAC options before Walmart got them (probably 4 or 5 years ago)... so I had to improvise.
