If you could get to LHC either in Texas or Arizona, I'd recommend them highly for experience, quality, cost and new friends. Camping World's rates have gone through the roof.
If there are more mods you have in mind, a trip to LHC could actually be a fun excursion. They are great folks and avid Casita owners themselves.

Please excuse my ignorance, but what is LHC stand for?

The advantage to the Fantastic fan is that they offer lower cost fans from entry level up through comparables. They also offer a lifetime guarantee at all levels.

The Maxxfan when equipped with premium features suffers from a premium price which can be even higher than a roof mounted A/C.

Both products are of amazing quality, built to last in a throw away world.[/QUOTE]

I don't think $220.00 is out of line from the Fantastic Fan prices.

Sorry about that. LHC is Little House Customs, a small, excellent group that specializes in repairs, upgrades, and modifications to Casitas and other fiberglass trailers. I mistakenly thought they'd been mentioned often enough here that LHC would be recognized.
They have shops in Texas and Arizona and are themselves avid fiberglass campers.

Maybe I don't understand your comment, or you didn't understand mine.
A top shelf Maxxfan can approach $500.
Compare feature to feature and they do "overlap"... with Fantastic Fans starting much lower with fewer features... and Maxxfan going much higher with premium features.
Apples to apples, I have found it much easier to buy a Fantastic Fan at a better price.

@rebeccasf did you end up installing one? just picked up my first Casita and I also don't have a powered fan on the roof so I'm looking into this.
