Roof Vent for Dog Box Truck Topper


Im thinking of installing the Maxxair Deluxe with remote on my dog topper box which is aluminum. It is non insulated thus the roof material is aluminum sheet. Will the fan/bracket on inside mount flush to the aluminum or will it hang? Just curious is its only designed for an insulated type thickness. Thx

I do have an option for you but we do not have any roof vents with 12 volt fans that would install on just a single piece of aluminum like what is on your dog box. The MaxxFan Plus Roof Vent part # MA00-04500K is designed for roofs between 2" - 6-1/2" thick so the interior bracket would more than likely have nothing to attach to.

Instead, of a powered vent I recommend using the Redline 2-Way Pop-Up Roof Vent part # 9106-2756 which will install flush on the aluminum and will not require any insulation or extra material. It comes with a gasket to prevent leaks and screen to keep out insects.

The overall dimensions are 13-1/2" long x 8" wide x 3-1/2" tall. I have attached a review video for you.
