Installed a ceiling fan in an 01-04 Islander??

I am already having to plan changes for my DW. Has anyone installed a 12v fan in the bedroom or living area of an 01-04 Islander?? Do you have pics?

A fan over the bed.

I installed one in our bedroom in our 36' Dolphin M.H.
You can go on line to fine one.
You can tie into the light that's over your bed.
Check for the one that has a remote with it that way you will not have to get out of bed to turn it on or off.
The one I have has 3 speeds and a reverse one of the nicer things is you can not hear it when it is running.

The ceiling has a plywood skin that the fuzzy ceiling stuff is glued to. There is a metal frame in there. You might want to consider fabricating a decorative ceiling panel of sufficient size that would attach firmly to the frame and then attach the fan to it.
I have considered doing the same thing. It just hasn't bubbled to the top of my list!
