The fan has a remote control, 5 speeds and is 42" across. Works really well. We hope the new owners enjoy it.

Our current coach does not have a practical way to mount a fan. Maybe we can trade back......................

I purchased the Global Fan from Amazon and returned it because I didn't want to contend with running the wires. The unit I bought, did not need the extra wiring.

I figured that would be the worst case scenario. Thanks for measuring.

What did you end up getting? I have a few small square ceiling lights in my coach now and was going to draw the power from one of those. Im spoiled by the ceiling fan from the previous coach.....

The one I was looking at was a remote control one. Trying to just mount the fan to the ceiling securely and use the remote....realizing the light switch will still have to be activated. My old coach with the factory fan had a little higher ceiling, so I will make sure the diameter of the one I buy is no wider that the bed in order to keep what little hair I have on my head in place.....

I already have four of those small ceiling lights in my ceiling so I wont even have to route much wire. Looking forward to being....cooooool…..again .

Thanks for all the input!!

Finished the install on the ceiling fan today. Nice addition, but a little bit disappointed in the speed it runs. "HIGH" seems like a normal low to medium speed....Granted its a 12 volt fan....guess Im used to the home ones, however the one in my old coach seemed to run faster....maybe that was a 24 volt and not a 12. I got the one VERAKEN suggested. Looks good though!
