Window Maxx vent installation

Snapped up one of these recently and very happy to have it since I know they are no longer manufactured. Now, which is the best window on which to install it on our Casita. Hubby says back window. I vote for foot or head of the bed. Is any one window better than another?

Hello Maryellen, I don't know anything about your trailer windows, but I'd sure like to know where you obtained the Maxxair vent? I'd give my eye teeth for one for one sliding window in my Trillium.

We had two on our 2013 Casita SD
One on the passenger side window above the bed
The second on the window above the side dinette
They are a real blessing when it’s raining

I also want to know where you got them!

Definitely put one at your bed window where you can reach out & close the window if it gets cold. I am assuming that the arms of your awning will not interfere with the windowvent. In summer rainstorm, you’ll need air, but want to prevent water on your bed.

Well, someone on this forum found one somewhere and I bought it from them. It was in the original box, clearly very old!

You should not put it on the rear driver side window. That is your emergency exit window and it must be able to swing out.

I wonder why Maxx quit making those vents and would they ever consider making them again. Sure seems like a lot of people are interested in them.

I spoke with Maxx a few months ago about the MaxxWindow Vent. First of all Maxx is under new ownership. The previous owner stopped producing the MaxxWindowvent several years before they sold the company.

I think that RV window design is changing, and Maxx felt it wasn't worth keeping that product. This is a plastic product. if you have to resize it to fit your window, and you make the wrong cut, you have to call Maxx to get another one. I think they felt the hassle wasn't worth their time as well. But whatever reason, they stopped producing this product years ago. The current owners won't be bringing it back.

Sad but true.

Congrats on your find. My wife and I where able to find one on ebay last year here in Ontario Canada. It works great over our bed. The Maxxair fan pulls the air across us and out the vent beautifully. Too bad they stopped production. Perhaps if enough interest is shown in this product maybe someone may take on it's reproduction. We feel blessed to have one of our own. Good Luck to all of you seeking one .

We put ours on the curbside window, because it was just beneath the edge of the awning and caught every drip.

I mounted ours on both the left and right upper berth windows in our Scamp 19' and also added a Maxx fan above the bed. Excellent ventilation with the fan set to exhaust. If I only had one, it would be on the window closest to my head when sleeping.

I have a 2014 Casita Spirit Deluxe. My first stop after Rice was Little House of Customs. I was fortunate enough to get 3 Maxx Air vents as Larry stated at the time he was beginning to run out. If I had only one, my choice would be in the rear assuming you sleep with your feet toward the TV shelf. I like a little fresh air on my face.

Thanks everyone for your comments. While we were at Scamp Camp at Highlands Hammock State Park my husband installed it on the back window. We love it already. Talked to several folks about these window vents. They found theirs on ebay.
