Yes, if you:

  • Travel with pets and want to make sure the fan will turn on when it gets to the thermostat setting to keep the air moving
  • Prefer having the rain cover and bug screen built into the vent so you can leave it open during any weather
  • Want a reversible fan that can also pull in fresh air so you don’t need to run your AC on nice days

No, if you:

  • Have a hard time reaching up to the ceiling to adjust the fan or open the vent
  • Prefer a dark lid to match your dark colored RV

Built-In Rain Shield

MaxxFan Deluxe Rain Shield

The MaxxFan Deluxe has a built-in rain shield that, along with the dome, surrounds and encloses the vent opening. The shield blocks rainwater and other precipitation from entering through the vent and damaging the interior of your RV or trailer. This means you can run the fan during any weather without having to worry about the consequences. With the rain shield, there is also no need to install a separate vent cover.

The white dome on the rain shield is constructed of durable high-density polypropylene. When it's closed, the dome provides a seamless, low-profile appearance.

Reversible, Variable-Speed Fan with Thermostat

MaxxFan Deluxe Fan Motor

The 12-volt, variable-speed fan has 2 modes of operation: manual and auto. When the fan is in manual mode, you can choose from 10 different speeds to increase or reduce the airflow as needed. Auto mode works in conjunction with the fan's thermostat.

To enter auto mode, press the auto mode button on the keypad. Once the fan is in auto mode, the thermostat is activated with a set temperature of 78 degrees F. Pressing the arrow keys on the keypad changes the set temperature in 1 degree increments. When the thermostat is set, it senses the room temperature and automatically turns the fan on if it is above the set temperature. The fan shuts off when the set temperature has been reached. If the room temperature rises, the fan turns on again. This keeps your RV cool and comfortable and saves you from having to adjust the fan by hand. The auto mode also saves energy by running the fan no more than necessary, especially while you're away or asleep.

This fan is reversible, which means you are able to both exhaust stale air out of your RV and bring fresh air in from the outside. To enter ceiling fan mode, close the vent while the fan is still running. The fan then circulates the air inside your RV like a ceiling fan.

The fan has a fuse-protected, ball bearing motor that is sealed to keep out dust, dirt, and moisture.

Flush-Mounted Keypad

Keypad for MaxxFan Deluxe

The flush-mounted keypad on the vent enables you to control the fan speed, the direction of the airflow, and the set temperature for the thermostat.

Manual-Lift Dome with Twin Arms

MaxxFan Deluxe Open

The dome on this roof vent is constructed of durable high-density polyethylene, and it is translucent so that some natural light can shine through. When it's closed, the dome provides a seamless, low-profile appearance that blends into the roof of your RV.

Unlike a dome that has only 1 arm, this manual-lift dome is supported by 2 sturdy arms so that it will not flutter during high winds or while you are driving.

MaxxFan Plus Manual Knob

And a manual hand knob is built into the underside of the vent to allow you to open and close the dome. Pull the knob outward, turn it to where you want it, and push it in to lock the dome into place.

Removable Bug Screen

MaxxFan Deluxe Bug Screen

This vent has a bug screen that helps keep insects and debris out of your RV. It is secured to the vent with 4 built-in retainer clips. These clips make it easy to remove the screen for cleaning or maintenance. Just rotate the clips, and the screen will pop out.


The MaxxFan Deluxe vent fits standard 14" x 14" openings in the roof of an RV, camper, or enclosed trailer. A white interior trim piece (or garnish), insulated electrical connectors, and hardware are included for installation. The included mounting flange is lined with a rubber weather seal, which helps prevent leaks. Roof sealant (sold separately) is required for installation.

To install, first secure the mounting flange to the roof. Then connect the two wires on the vent to your RV's electrical system. The black wire is for power, and the white wire is for ground. Next insert the vent into the flange and fasten it down using the metal mounting points on the flange. To finish, trim the garnish as needed to fit the thickness of your roof and install it.

I can't say enough about etrailer, my shipment was early, the price was very competitive and the product works great. I would caution anyone installing this fan to also use a DC to DC 12 volt converter to keep the volts to 12 volt and the amps to 5a. If you exceed this my a small amount the circuit board will burn out.....

The Max Air I purchased from trailer is working great after the first year, I would caution people these fans are volt sensitive do I would recommend including a buck converter to the instillation of this product to maintain 12 stay volts insuring longevity of the fan.

I have two of these installed in our stepvan - they were one of the first things we installed during the build process, and thank goodness we did because they kept us cooler during the summer build. Easy to use, the multiple-fan settings are nice, and the exhaust feature can pull a lot of air. We don't have AC, so these fans make a huge difference in pulling out hot air and replacing with outside air. Great service from etrailer - I ordered the wrong fan the first time and they were great to work with in getting another shipped out to me.


All works well after, maybe 75 hours accumulated use time. Current draw can be less than 500ma at lower speeds. Installation instructions were decent; all parts were included.

The fan closes tight and opens easily. No water intrusion either closed or when open in moderately heavy rain for 20 minutes (fan off).

Wiring would have benefited from a small connector preinstalled on the fan wires with the mating connector supplied with a short (6") pigtail with (small) crimp barrel connectors needed to install it to the house wiring; with the proper (very small) connector, this could make fitting the wiring under the trim easier. The hardest part was ensuring the wiring was securely installed and fitted under the trim so as it would not be abraded by vibration.

By using 1-1/2" PVC spacers on the exterior roof it was possible to install the fan so the interior trim profile protruded only 1/8" below the interior ceiling, even though the roof was only a total of 3/8" thick, including fiberglass and interior finishing.

Possible long term issues:
. fan motor (sometimes there is a chirp for several minutes after changing direction of rotation). IMHO, a better fan motor with better bearings is indicated.
. membrane switches. Adequate, sort of. But on this type switch, surface lettering wears relatively quickly; then the membrane itself wears through. Quality hard switches on which the "button" could be replaced or the whole switch replaced would be a better long term value.
. exterior UV resistance.

Critical issues before purchase (besides size of hole):
. Weight vs. strength of roof. Aluminum reinforcement can be installed on interior or exterior of roof; it's better to plan ahead of time if this is necessary.
. Total height of fan above roof vs. overhead structures or fitted vehicle covers.

Given similar market choices, I would buy this fan again. But hopefully not needed for this rv.


We really like this MaxxFan Deluxe Roof Vent model 05100K. The rain vent works as advertised, the 10-speed fan can either bring fresh air into the camper, or reversed can exhaust air from the camper. The construction quality is great. It is installed on our RV.
Buy with confidence!


Good Day, The Maxxair vent is a true quality product easy install and has worked flawlessly this past year. etrailer provides information and instruction that makes this all work! Thank you


1 year review- works great. Screen is easy to clean and the unit provides plenty of power. Only issue has been the squeaky fan. It squeaked/chirped from day one at low speed. Annoying but tolerable since I use it at higher speeds. Works great with no leaks during downpours.

I reached out to the manufacturer about this issue and they said to have you run your fan on high for twenty four hours to stop the squeaking.

I researched the heck out of roof fans and selected this one. I am building a conversion camper from a cargo trailer. I have 600 hours in it and almost done. Next week is the first trip, electrical is just completed and the fan was just energized. It worked and is quiet. Best I can tell you thus far. Ask me in a yearwht i think.


My backyard Tuff Shed workshop has a turbine vent fan, which really doesn't work all that well. Over the years I've tried various powered fans, but have never been satisfied with the results. Now that it needs a roof, I was thinking about a solar roof fan. Since I have a 400 watt, 12 volt solar system for security lighting, I realized I could use a fan similar to the one in my RV. The installation was very easy, and the quality of the fan is excellent. Not having to worry about closing the lid for rain is great, and the automatic thermostat is a wonderful set and forget feature. I'm especially impressed how quiet it is.


Major design flaw and suck-[y] company. Any battery charger, when in initial charge mode will push more than 14 volts. The control panel on this fan will only handle 13.8 volts, and will burn out. Maxxfan has known about this for years and has done several re-designs but refuse to fix this problem. They like selling new control panels at $xx a pop. Once you install their flange on your roof you're kinda stuck with them. Solution is found on Ford E350 forum. Buy a small voltage regulator and wire it into the fan. If you can't do this yourself this fan is not worth buying. Shame on you Maxxfan!

This is a 12 Volt fan.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 01/07/2022


Everything worked just the way it was supposed to. My issue with this particular product is in my opinion, the design of the cover doesn't allow as much air flow as other designs without rain shield.


We installed this in our fifth wheel bedroom. Installation was easy in our case. It is very quiet, works well and has been reliable. A few things we've noted: 1.) We have three different models of MaxxFans in our trailer and each has an unnecessarily dissimilar interface, ex., to power off, on one unit you press the power button multiple times and on another, there is a separate power off button. Second ex. , to change fan speed, one model you press the power button multiple times, on another, there are high-low speed arrow buttons. Of course, this is only an issue because we have three different models in our trailer.; 2.) The "ceiling fan mode" where the fan reverses and sends air into the room is not particularly effective because the blade is so close to the vent cover and can't move any air.

Despite those two small issues, we are very happy with our purchase and would buy again. Also note that the white vent cover BLOCKS more light than the black. We didn't realize that at purchase and there is no way to change the vent cover once installed.


I did my homework before I purchased this item and it paid off! Great quality, fairly easy install and is insanely quiet! If it wasn’t for the air movement in the trailer, I would forget the thing was on!


These MaxxFan rv fans are superb! Installed when we rehabbed a decrepit RV, they have held up wonderfully. We got rid of the cooking vent, thus giving more space in the kitchen, and our MaxxFan nearest the kitchen is our vent. You can see pictures and even a video of the fans and remodel on our blog
etrailer is our #1 source for quality and price for our RV and other trailers.

Still loving the fans. Very easy to clean screens. They can move a lot of air.

It's been a year since we installed our first Maxxfan Deluxe Vent W/ 12v Fan - Manual - 10 Speed - White.... 1) It wasn't too difficult to remove the old fan and install the new one. Took a little patience with the first install, but by the third (we have three fans) it was a piece of cake. Don't forget to use Decor to ensure everything is sealed properly. 2) These fans are very powerful. The one in my bathroom will actually suck the door shut. When we set the one the living area to blow air in and the one in the bedroom to blow air out, air really moves and cools down the rv fast. 3) They are way more quiet compared to my old original fans. Only when I have them on the highest setting to I notice they are on. 4) The built in rain vent is very useful given that if it is raining the only air we get is through the fan vents as all the windows must be closed. 4) My only disappointment has been with the way the fan blades are designed, the air moves more sideways near the ceiling (which is good as hot air rises) but when it is really hot and I'm lying in bed I would like the air to blow downwards so I can feel it.


Nice fan, I put a 7000 over bed and installed this one over cabover in Class C. Install was easy and identical to the 7000. They need to include self taping screws to attach collar to roof, mine has a metal frame and included screws are for wood. It does have a thermostat button preset at 78 degrees so if you leave open it will pull or push air when cab reaches 78. 7000 has a remote and motor on lift, thats the only difference.

Still working fine. Have had no problems and would definitely buy again.
ian m - 06/01/2019


etrailer does a great job getting items sent out and customer service is great. Very helpful with questions. The fan I replaced with the Maxxfan 5100 was in the bedroom of the 5th wheel and had the automatic lift lid and in the middle of the night would open and close and was quite loud. That's why I bought the manual lift. It works fine for us. Have used it for a full summer now without issue. I have noticed that the old fan did move more air than this one but hasn't been an issue for us. The only thing I don't like is when you set the temperature on automatic this little green light comes on and stays on. It is bright enough that it lights up the whole bedroom all night. Will find some black tape to cut and put over it.
Was easy to install as other reviews have stated. Cleaning up the old dicor off the rubber roof was the only thing that took some time. Very happy with it.


Major improvement of air venting in my Dutch Star.
Easy install as replacement for standard factory vent with small fan


Installation was simple in existing AC hole in trailer. Works as described. Quiet in low speeds. Moves a lot of air on high. Overall a good buy. I will probably upgrade the bathroom vent with another one of these.


Purchased the Maxxair Fan for a Ford Transit camper conversion and after 6 months on the road I wouldn't have gone with anything else. It's easy to install, easy to use, and I've had no issues at all with it. Etrailer was also quick to provide support when / if I needed it!

Still working just fine after another 6 months on the road and using the van as a daily driver. Ive noticed some dust eventually builds up on the blades of the fan, but its easy enough to use a wet cloth and wipe it down. Fantastic product.
Miles A - 01/14/2021


Received product very fast and in perfect shape.
the only done side was that we had to buy n adjustable voltage drop regulator in order to hook it up in our camper do to the fan very picky on voltage over 13 volts but other than that, when its was hooked up the fan is awesome. Just wish Maxxair ciuld of done it better with the voltage issue. Great product!!!


Bought this item because of the adjustable rain shield feature for use of the fan during bad weather. This fan will be installed on a home-built teardrop camper. etrailer delivered it via UPS on the day promised and it was undamaged. I will post more later once installed and in use on the camper. For now I'll give a composite four stars rating for the ordering/delivery phase and for the reviews of the product given by other purchasers. From what I've read online so far, I expect to be pleased with my choice.


I wasn't able to install it until the Spring because of the winter climate in NH. So far it has functioned flawlessly. Great product.


Excellent fan, exactly what I needed. Easy install. I like that I can lock it in any position.


I bought 3 Maxxair Maxxfans from etrailer. Shipping was fast, they arrived in good condition, and etrailer match the lower Price I found online. What more could I ask for?

Works great! Quiet and seals up tight. Survived May and June rains in Michigan. It rained and rained... This should be OEM on all better RVs!
