Small Fan?

Any suggestions on a small fan for the camper? As winter is coming and I know the heat will be on etc I would like to put a small maybe 10" fan in the bedroom to help keep the air moving! Any thoughts would be great!

Moving the air is great. We have used a forced air ceramic heater to supplement the heat and move the air. (Especially if the elec is part of the site rental)

If you are staying in it during cold weather a dehumidifier may be in order to keep the humidity out of the walls as well.

Sounds good. Electric is included, as for a dehumidifier not sure I will need that, as I am in South Carolina. Just trying to find a decent fan that will work!

We have one of these:

O2 Cool 8" Battery Operated Electric Portable Fan - Walmart.com

It works off 120 v, D cell batteries, or, with a cord I made, 12 v power from a cigar lighter outlet.

We have a small Vornado fan. Really moves the air around. We do not use a space heater in the bedroom. We like it co,d to sleep.

Check Walmart or Amazon for fans. If you are using 110v, any will work well, but Amazon posts reviews so you can pick the better rated ones. We also got a 12v fan for boondocking that we haven't needed yet, and a battery powered one as well for back up.
They don't weigh much so I don't mind carrying all three.

We carry one of these: Optimus 10" Box Fan FNOP1022 - Walmart.com

For situations without 120VAC power we also have one of these:
Amazon.com: Fan-Tastic Vent 01100WH Endless Breeze 12V Fan: Automotive

However one of these would do: http://www.walmart.com/ip/O2-Cool-8-...ype=10&veh=aff

This small fan is perfect for moving air around when sleeping....keeps from having to set the a/c for lower temp at night. We use it in the screen room on battery power when needed or on 110v.
Great choice BFlinn

I buy computer fans, 12v, use micro amps and can be run for days without running the battery down.

We made some battery powered portable units from some 4 inch very high flow computer fans that only pull 0.47 amps.

They have a gell cell in the bottom that plugs into coach 12 volt bus for charging and they run for hours.

I use a high vivacity fan 21 inch, set on low in the bathroom and it moves air all the way up to the front of the MH. Keeps the MH pretty even on warmth. Rarely use the ac in the summer

I have a 10" Holmes fan ($10 Ace Hardware). It has a clip like a big close pin and you can mount it just about anywhere. Two speeds.

I run it every night for about 8 hrs and have had it for 6 yrs.
