Recommendations for bathroom fan replacement?

The bathroom fan in our 2018 377RLBH died last weekend. What are your recommendations to replace it? I would like the replacement to be like the kitchen fan where it opens automatically when you turn it on - i.e. no more hand crank (kids can't reach ceiling). I would also like it to be as plug and play swap-able as possible. The original model is what is in the bathroom now, I can't recall if it's Fantastic Fan or MaxxAire?

What have you put in there or would you recommend? What models are on easy swap? Appreciate the thoughts!

I installed the Maxxair with auto open and close with the remote control for my petite DW. Love that fan!

I installed the Fantastic Fan, ��uto opening 12 speed, reversible, and rain sensor/auto close. Oh, and they are QUIET! Easy installation.

I upgraded mine to the MaxxFan Deluxe 7500. The remote makes it useable for all. You can set it to come on/turn off at certain temps and it also has 10 speeds.

Another vote here for the MaxxAir Deluxe - The remote plus a thermostat is awesome...

Thanks all. Is the size fairly standard? So that this MaxxFan 7500 should fit into my 377RLBH?

Maxxfan deluxe, 7000 series for white, 7500 series for smoked. Excellent fan. Quiet and moves a lot of air. Tons of features and a remote. Remote allows my wife and daughter to operate the fan and they can't reach the ceiling. Also has a built in rain guard too that folds up and down as it opens and closes, making it low profile.

Thanks,
Earl

Yes, the cutout is the same. The only thing we had to do was reuse the inside trim piece which needed a little trimming to fit the Maxxair housing.

Another vote for the MaxxFan. After having my kitchen fan die first, I put them in both the Loft and Bathroom when that died. I figure itís great for air flow when everything is working. My AC use went down substantially with three good vent fans while in the park, and it makes it more comfortable to boondock. If I find myself with a dead fan (again) it gives me an easy option to be able to swap bits if needed if another dies.

Slurugger, if you stick with Fantastic then you only have to change the “guts” and you won’t have to go on the roof. You can order a kit.
Unless the 2018’s changed to maxxair.

Just remember to check fan cover hieght. May not be an issue for your rig but our A/C's put our height at 13'7", which is technically one inch over legal. I was going to put a cover over our basic MaxxFan so we could use it in the rain, but it was taller than the 9.5" Coleman Mach A/C's.

I installed the MaxxAire 7500 on our 355mbqs. Love it. Has more features on the remote control than I use but still great! Easy to swap out. If I can do it, anyone can!

Glad you found what you're looking for.

When hail gave us the option of replacing the bathroom vent with a fan we put in a simple manual 3 speed, 2 way fantastic fan and we love it. I cut a 2" section out of the bathroom door near the top and glued the top back onto the shortened door. That way we can run the fan with the door shut without suffocating the motor. Good fan is soooo nice!
