Bedroom air ventilation

Not sure where to post this, guess this is as good as any! I have become accustomed to sleeping with the br ceiling fan always on. The couple of nights we've spent in the fifth wheel so far, I needed the air circulation Have a 12v fan that clips on that came with the camper, but it's really noisy, and no place to clip it on my side of the sleeping area. Anybody solve this problem? looking for recommendations, would like something 12v that oscillates and is relatively quiet.

Does not oscillate, but how about a 9v battery, fridge circulation fan...by your bed.

Our situation is different but maybe similar in some aspects. We have a large teardrop, probably about the size of your bedroom. One of the problems with teardrops that many complain about is that conventional roof vent fans are too much and how do I slow it down. I solved the problem by not having one installed in the vent. I then built a frame and put two 80mm Antec three speed computer case fans in it with a DPDT switch that can run both or one of them. We seldom have them on high. The advantage very quiet and very little noise. Newer case fans make even less sound. The other alternative would be to slow down your current 12V fan with a 12V DC speed controller, in expensive and available from Ebay or Amazon.

If you are not dry camping, why not use a regular small ac fan. That is what we do and and it works great.

How about an Endless Breeze, basically a Fantastic Vent in a standalone housing?

I second Shadowcatche's suggestion of a computer fan (aka muffin fan). The larger ones move quite a bit of air and many are very quiet. I found a nice one on Amazon that I used to replace the fan in the bathroom ceiling vent. Many of the ones on Amazon had decible ratings in the descriptions, which helped narrow things down.

If you have the bedroom height and a nearby 12 volt power source, you could add a small 12 volt RV ceiling fan.
