Roof Vent Recommendation For A 1978 VW Adventurewagen

Question:

Thank you for your response to my previous question. We are returning a Maxxfan Deluxe due to it not fitting on our roof due to the shape of the opening of our current vent. Our mistake for not catching that before hand You suggested MaxxFan Plus Roof Vent w/ 12V Fan and Thermostat # MA00-04000K. We have a 1978 VW Adventurewagen with a fiberglass roof. Our roof is 1 inch thick. Will your suggestion of fan work with this spacing? If not, could you suggest one that may work that is an intake/ exhaust?This is why we picked the low profile after more research of the fans. We dont mind a manual fan/ vent, simply one that will work in the space provided. Thanks for your time.

Instead of going with the MaxxFan Roof Vent w/ 12V Fan # MA00A04301K mentioned before, I suggest taking a look at the:

-Fan-Tastic Vent Roof Vent w/ 12V Fan and Thermostat # FV803350 instead.

This roof vent is designed to fit RV, camper, and trailer roofs up to 4" thick, unlike the MaxxFan Deluxe you mentioned which will fit roofs 2"- 4-1/2".

Additionally, this fan is also reversible, and the variable speed fan offers two modes of operation that allow you to boost or reduce airflow as needed.

Attached is a review video of # FV803350 for you to check out as well.

Question:

Thank you again for the reasons. That sounds like a much better fit. Are you aware of a similar model with a white cover and no Thermostat? Theres no a/c in the bus and we live in Texas so the Thermostat wouldnt work well for us.

Sure thing!

Take a look at the:

-Ventline Ventadome Roof Vent w/ 12V Fan - Powered Lift # V2119-603-00 instead.

Similar to # MA00A04301K, this roof vent also has a reversible fan for intake/exhaust, as well as a powered lift to open and close the cover, which will eliminate hand cranking.
