Attic ventilation system

Are they available on Excel 5th wheels? With wooden trusses in the roof, it would make sense to keep that area dry. Please comment.

Hey Greg,

We are looking at new Excels today in NM and some of the real late model Limiteds (came into inventory in the last month or so) have fresh air vents in the ceiling (like maybe 6 in the living area). Earlier models don't have them. I plan on asking about this in the AM when we go back to talk more about this. If someone doesn't give you the answer before then.....I'll update you tomorrow! Good question! rockin'

Those vents in the ceiling shouldn't be attic vents. Attic space is filled up with fiberglass insulation. You wouldn't like to breathe in its particles.

Wish I could join you on 2010 Excel tour. Keep your eyes open on 28RT models - the ones we're interested in. Have fun tomorrow and do not forget your cheque book!

The vents or registers are a new style AC vent used instead of the Chill Grill. The AC compressor is still Coleman Mach, but looks a little more low profile. The condensor fins in the rear of the unit are curved around the back of the unit....instead of being flat. Cover on the unit looks quite a bit different than the my original style. rockin'

Yes the air conditioning is vented. And what is really nice is if you donít want all the vents blowing out cold air just remove the cover and stuff an old t-shirt in the tubing . The best part of having the air vented is when you have two air conditioners! I can run the one in the bedroom during the day and not have that noise over my head and jut the opposite at bed time. Both of my airs have there own thermostat so maintaining a comfortable temperature is easily done.

This was my initial post. I sense a topic side drift here.

So, back to the subject. Is attic ventilation system available on Excel 5th wheels?
