Roof Vent covers?

Looking to add some Roof Vent Covers to my RV. Had MaxxAir vents on my old RV. Before I buy some more just checking to see what y'all are using on your RV?

I added the Max Air Rain Covers primarily to allow me to open the vents in storage. Easy to install and works as advertised.

MaxxAir. Works great. We have the fantastic fans that will close when it rains so installed MaxxAir so we can still use the bathroom vent even if it is raining.

IMO, there are none better than the MaxxAir. Several models & an array of colors. I've put them on all our RV's.

I bought two of them, then found only one would fit as one Fantastic Fan was too close to the roof edge.
Before doing that I contacted Fantastic Vent and asked about the fan cover hitting the Maxxair, they said not to worry as the motor would cut out before any damage was done.
One other thing I did was to replace the Fantastic Fan covers with their insulated (double wall) ones. No cost for them at that time as on of the OEM units broke so it needed replacing anyway.

I agree with the MaxxAir crowd. We have the MaxxAir II on our vents. I think they should be standard equipment.

I have those camco vent covers on my RV. They work just fine. The benefit of some other brands is the side venting features. Can't beat the price though.

The airflow issue is resolved by removing the screen on the camco cover if that is needed.

We have Fan-tastic Ultrabreeze Vent Covers. They were easy to install and move a lot more air. Check out the video.
