Suggestions for fan while boondocking

We camp with our dog, and while boondocking in spring/summer temps here in Western Colorado and Eastern Utah - it can get way too hot for him (and us) quickly despite Reflectix in our windows and/or leaving windows open but shades down to the opening for a cross breeze. We have two AC units - so no Fantastic Fan. We've tried running the bathroom fan, but it just doesn't pull enough air. Does anyone have a suggestion of a fan we could leave plugged into the cigarette lighter for a couple of hours while we're away from our Greyhawk 29MV?

I have had one for years and it is a great little addition but you have to have a cig. lighter outlet. I think the cord is 12' long.

I got this one from good old Amazon. We open our frameless window, which barely lets in any air, and place the fan on top of the couch back. It pulls in a lot of air and you can definitely feel the breeze.

If your power outlet is far away you can get an extension cord, once again, from Amazon.
