For now I am likely just installing a large two speed computer fan. I am thinking I might cut the ensolite to run the wires, and us T-moulding to cover it up. Lots of that stuff in the trailer already.

That sounds like a good solution Jim. I can't believe that running the wires under the ensolite actually worked........hahaha.

Looks really clean. I'm going to try the same thing. What is the wall thickness of the 1 1/4 tubing?

I used PVC trim (Home Depot), ripped it to ~0.5", built two 14" frames and screwed them together inside and outside. As my roof is somewhat soft, I also used the opportunity to glass in some additional support using 5/8" aluminum angle. Not complete yet but here are a couple pix.

Hey Patrick, I have actually noticed a bit of a sag in my roof after the install of the MaxxFan. Let me know how your supports work out.
