Ceiling Fan?

Have ordered our Cornerstone and it should be delivered in early April. When we ordered it we decided not to order the ceiling fan in the bedroom. Since that time, we are questioning that decision. We still have time to make the changes. Looking for some input from some owners who have the ceiling fan option installed. Does it make a difference? My wife is, (how shall I put it?) temperature sensitive. If it offers a benefit it would be money WELL SPENT. Appreciate your comments in advance.

I have a 13 Aspire and wish it had been available in 2012. The Entegra is a great coach but the windows open little. I frequently setup a portable fan. We dry camp about 10-20% of the time and a 12v mounted fan would be a valuable addition. If you only go where 50 amp service is available then you don't require one....but it is pretty cheap....IMHO

We ordered the ceiling fan in our new coach. In the TS we had a desk fan blowing on the bed the entire 10 years we owned it. Couldn't wait to get a ceiling fan.

I see you are also in FL....we have ceiling fans in every room in our S&B including the bathroom to help circulate the A/C. We are looking forward to the same comfort in the Anthem. It is nice to be able to run the front A/C, turn just the fan on and sleep in total quite without any A/C noise.

Don't have a ceiling fan but really wish we did especially on hot nights. The bedroom gets stuffy fast if you don't run the AC constantly. The fan keeps the sir moving. We have them at home and run them 24/7 during the summer. Makes a big difference.

Couldn't live without it, if you're around Red Bay AL have Custom RV put one in for you. Brannon put ours in for us great price and excellent workmanship, he is also an authorized warranty center for Entegras

Good move IMO.

I added a 12v ceiling fan to our Revolution bedroom last winter. Of all of the many improvemnts, changes, etc. I have done to the coach, the fan is one of the absolute best. Wish I would've added it sooner. After a day's driving, the rear of the coach can become a rather large "heat sink" for quite some time, especially on warm evenings. The fan has made an iincredible difference. Ours has a remote, 3 speeds and will operate in both directions. Just my 2 cents.....

If it had been an available option, I'd have taken it. Period.

Trying to figure how and where I'd put one in the salon of our DEQ.

I am a ceiling fan addict in the bedroom, it pushes in the summer and pulls in the winter; I like the air circulation. I will figure out how to get one in the bedroom. The salon could be tough with the mirrored ceiling.

I am just trying to figure out how to get a good install of ceiling fan in my 2013 without paying an arm and a leg. At the factory price, it's a no-brainer. Anyone who orders a new Entegra without the ceiling fan is nuts.

X2 !!! I just installed a 12vdc ceiling fan (36") and the bedroom is no longer a room full of dead air !! Makes a huge difference year round (especially when your neighbor has decided to have a campfire with wet wood and you need to close all your windows).

Order it now.

We ordered our Anthem last July. The ceiling fan option became available sometime in August. I called the dealer to have them add it. Something got fouled up and they missed the change in the production. When we got our coach in November it was minus a ceiling fan. After a couple go rounds between the factory and the dealer they determined that they could not add it after the fact because the mounts were not installed in the ceiling for it. There was also a wiring issue. So add it to the order now and make sure that the change is made to the production build sheet. You can add an after market fan but it would not be the same.
