I don't think I used the right model # in the first post. However, the one we bought is supposed to offer the most airflow.

Mine doesn't (that I can tell) All the resistance in my trailer depends on how may windows are open. Location may have something to do with it or the fact that the one you referenced is similar but not like mine, which is now 7 years old... and there has been a new "improved" model, and like many things, improved may not be what it seems.
At any rate, we like it!

Floyd, I'm glad you like your hood.
I seem to be in the minority, but truly, I definitely feel the difference in airflow, and hear the significant difference in fan noise level when the fan runs. As I said before, my husband is not bothered nearly as much as I am. Different ears, and sensitivities, I'm sure. I feel the hood reduces the available windflow, and that's that.
Even a simple window screen blocks some air, but blocks pesky insects. All things in life are a compromise. Like I said, on rainy days, I love the hood. On dry days, not so much. Especially hot still days.
Sherry

we have the original fantastic fan and use a vent hood. we cannot imagine not having it. we don't use the fan itself very much, really, but when we do need to use it, there does not seem to be much decrease in air flow. we DO love it when it is raining---we do not miss having the rain drip inside. now, our FF combined with the maxx air window vents make a rainy day no problems at all. our windows are sliders, not jalousied, as we would have preferred.

I priced this vent cover. Let's just say that they are very proud of it.

Tom,
You are right they do want a few $$$ for it but if you are looking to move a lot of air on a really hot day it would be worth it!

Yea, it appears to be well designed. I'd have to apply extra glue to my toupee to use that thing.

I have the MaxAir II over the fantastic fan now, and do not find the little bit of extra noise objectionable. Mind you I am sixty, and after thirty years of listening to sirens, I don't hear everything the way others may.

I like pictures and videos and this has peaked my curiosity to consider that cover. Pretty cool (pun intended).
