Evergreen Igo Fan installation

Has anybody installed a Fantastic fan in an IGO trailer?
I want to install 2 one in the bedroom and one in the front.
Of course they will be mounted in the existing vent holes.

If you have done this I would like to hear from you on your experience good or bad.

My trailer does not have a rubber roof but I believe it is fiberglass,I'm not sure if it can support a person??

Supporting a person is not dependent on the roof skin covering (fiberglass, EPDM rubber, TPO, etc) but rather the substrate under it. All three of those membrane types are normally laid over a layer of plywood (or similar) that typically would support loads of 225-250 lbs without concern.

The Igo brochure describes a aluminum frame roof and sidewalls with a plywood substrate under the TPO roof membrane. I don't see a weight rating, but i would estimate at least 250 lbs person.

Hi. I bought complete vents with electric fans already installed. Same model that were already installed. Just like in the bathroom. On ebay they were about $20 each. Then I took out the fan assembly from the new fans and installed them into my existing vents with out fans. I did not want to disrupt the existing non leaking roof. Its not as fancy, but its a fan.
