Has anyone bought Fan-tastic Ultrabreeze Vent Cover? It's a bit pricey but seems to work very well.

Fan-tastic Ultrabreeze Vent Cover - White - Fan-Tastic Vent UB1500WH - Vents - Camping World

YES! My old trailer had 2 roof vents. We have covers on both and just left the vents open year round in storage. We never had any excess moisture or mildew issues. The humidity inside always matched the humidity outside. When camping in the cold we would leave a vent cracked for fresh air to vent out the humidity from the propane furnace.

They are pricey; over twice the price of the Camco cover and I need two. The vents don't open quite as far with the Camco, but there were few times in the past when we needed the maximum possible air flow. When we wanted the highest fan speed and air flow, it wasn't for an extended time.

Max Air II, first thing I did when I bought our new trailer. You can pull the two pins to open it for cleaning

I think they are worth the time and effort. Not hard to install either. Like others, this was my first mod. I installed the MaxxAir 850 and really like it.

MaxxAir 2 for us. Like other posters have mentioned it is a must do mod. Very easy job that should only take 15 minutes at most.

?Wondering why this ?? keeps coming up. OK I know it stuff like this that keeps the forum chatter going, but there have to have been 250 previous posts on this topic.

Short answer it takes minutes to install so adding vent covers and a fan is a no brainer.
