Upgrade your tiny bathroom fan for superior ventilation.
Powerful Create-a-Breeze by Fantastic Vent brings in fresh outside air economically and quietly. Also adds extra ventilation to travel trailers and smaller motorhomes. Three speed 12V motor. Fits 14"x14" opening. Uses only 3 amps on high. White, UV-resistant ABS plastic. USA.
We had a "Fan-Tastic" fan in our old unit but never used the reverse direction so this time in our new unit we bought a "Create-A-...Breeze" and it is very good. Very quiet compared to that orginal equipment piece of junk. We put it in the bathroom vent hole so at night you can close the door and hardly hear it but enjoy the breeze it is pulling in through the window next to the bed. Once you have one of these (either the "Create-A-Breeze" or "Fan-Tastic" fan) you'll never have a camper without one.
The installation was simple and the quality of the fan is great. During the installation I stepped on the interior trim plat and ...broke it. I called the company up to get a replacement and they sent one out free the next day. I am very pleased with this product and the company that backs it.
My original and useless bathroom fan exploded on me one day so I decided to give this one a try. I couldn't be more satisfied. Qua...lity made, easy installation, quiet operation. Took me about an hour to install, but that was because the old one was a pain to remove. I love the controls and the way the fan really moves air. Even on the lowest setting, it pulls enough air to feel it from the front of my fifth wheel. I wish I didn't throw
away the instructions, because now I want to wire it to a wall switch. Oh well, great product, great price. I highly recommend it.
Blows away stock bathroom fans. I finished wiring this in the bathroom of our 28ft. TT on a hot afternoon. My wife was cleaning ou...t the kitchen area and as soon as I turned it on she said WOW I feel the air flow out here! Much quieter then the useless bathroom fans that come in most RV's and moves enough air to ventilate the entire rig. If you don't need the bells and whistles of the more expensive fans this will satisfy you.
I installed this in my bathroom to replace the stock fan. It
is quieter than the reversible fan I installed in my RV
bedroom. Th...is is not a bad product but it moves less air
than my original bathroom fan so I'm a bit disappointed. In
addition it cuts off some of the fresh air flow when it
isn't going due to the circular opening the fan is mounted
in and the large motor size. My stock bathroom fan was just
a fan in a full 14x14 vent opening so we got plenty of air
when the fan wasn't running. I wish I had not installed
either fantastic fan.
I have not purchased this fan yet, but need to know if it is
multi-speed? Also, what is the quality of the fan's
cover....for e...xample, is the sun going to cook this plastic
and thus it fails within a few years? Anyone know?
We bought it as a replacement fan for our 5th Wheel bathroom. Does a tremendous job and will pull a breeze from any shaded window ...left open a few inches. One tip: do NOT flush the toilet with it running, it will pull the odor up
as well. Only reason I didn't give it a 5 is that the mechanism to raise and lower the cover seems a little flimsy. A really nice item and easy to install.
I purchased the Create-a-Breeze Fan along with the Universal Vent Installation Kit for Rubber Roofs. Once we took out the old fan... and caulking, using the new installation kit made putting in the new fan a snap! I would recommend to anyone who needs to replace a fan to choose this one. We had to trim the sleeve as our roof isn't as thick at
the fan sleeve called for but with a skill saw the job was done in short order.
I purchased two of these fans for my motorhome. One I bought on a sale and it came complete with wires and screws. The second I pu...rchased was at regular price and it was an open box with no instructions, wires, or screws. I am not satisfied with the second order. I had a hole in the top of my motor home, I couldn't return it and wait for a new one. I had to go spend more money at Home Depot to finish my job.
WOW ---- We had a cheesy vent with a little 4 inch noisy fan that didn't do a whole lot. When the swing arm on the riser finally g...ave up we bit the bullet and shelled out the bucks for this one. NIGHT AND DAY DIFFERENCE!!! This thing will
move so much air you can dry your hair just by standing in the bathroom doorway!! (OK, I ain't got much left). The knob that raises and lowers the dome works effortlessly and the 3
speeds is fantastic. My girlfriend is extremely happy (and what else matters). Installation was really easy (once you get the petrified, sun-baked caulk removed from the old one,
take at least 4 blades for the razor knife up on the roof with you to expose the old screws, sharpen a heavy duty
paint scraper with a mill file to get the rest). You'll probably have to trim the dress ring, but just follow the
directions with coping saw and razor knife, clean up the cut
with a file to ease installation. Expensive but totally worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Would buy another in a heart beat.
Bought a new 5th wheel trailer. It had the cheapo bathroom fan. It was noisy and did not
move much air. So it was basically usel...ess. I had installed a create a breeze fan in my
old class A motorhome. I was very happy with it so I installed another one in my 5th
wheel. Could not be happier, it is quiet and moves a lot of air. Low speed is more than
adequate to do the job. I would recommend this one to everyone.
Installation was simple. Moves a ton of air; almost too
much. Even on low speed it pulls a lot of heated or cooled
air out of th...e travel trailer. We just modified how long we
run the fan, turning it on for just a few minutes after a
shower, for example, instead of running it the whole time
we're showering as we did with the factory unit. This thing
is also nearly silent. The noisy OE fan announced to the
neighbors when we were in the bathroom and the stealth of
this unit is appreciated. We also replaced the existing vent
cover with a Create-a-Breeze model.
I purchased one of these a few yrs ago, a new install in our LQ Horse trailer. Only had to locate ceiling beams near a light (powe...r for fan) MAYBE 2 hour install, start to finish. From cutting the hole to installing a vent cover over this unit. Now, step into a hot trailer, turn on this fan, in 10 minutes most of the hot is gone!! Also installed a vent cover over the bathroom vent. No more musty trailer, can leave vents open all the time! Am upgrading trailers, buying another of these fans and Fan-Tastic Vent covers! This is a MUST on the new one! thanks Camping World!
This exhaust fan works great in my trailer's
bathroom. I have an older fantastic fan that has
been working well for years. Thi...s new fan sits about
an inch higher. I guess that is why they call it high
profile. The inner trim piece is easily cut with a
table saw, to match the thickness of your roof. I
would buy another in a heart beat.
I installed this fan over the gooseneck of my horse trailer with living quarters. It is very
quiet and extremely functional to r...emove warm air over the bed area when I do not have
direct power for the Air Conditioner. I usually run it for 5 min with a window open to draw
in fresh air and remove stale air. It is an excellent add on.
I bought this to replace an Elixer bathroom fan that was great at making noise but not
much else and it came with hardware and e...xtra extension wires which I needed to make
the electrical connection. The supplied interior trim didn't match up to my bathroom
ceiling and I ended up modifying it and the original trim to get everything to fit how I
wanted but it boils down to user preference. Additionally you will need roof cleaner,
denatured alcohol, and two tubes of sealant to complete the install, but overall the
construction and design are very good. It will move a lot of air as advertised, so much in
fact that most of the time I run it on the lowest setting. I have a 2-3 inch gap under the
bathroom door but on medium / high it will suck the door closed from about half-open and
when the door is closed, it will suck the bathroom rug away from the door and make a
mess of it. I let it run on low for about six hours one sunny day with only a small solar
battery maintainer to keep the two house batteries up and there was no appreciable
battery drain shown on the levels monitor either. The complaint others had of the black
tank fumes getting sucked out of the toilet are not really a problem for me, but it probably
has something to do with how the tanks are vented too. Great product!
This fan really sucks the air out of the trailer. Mine is in the bathroom. Only problem is the
suction is so strong if you flush... the toilet while the fan is on, it pulls odor out of the black
tank. Remember to shut off the fan, and it's awesome.
Wow! I am so delighted with this fan! I had it up and running in no time, easy install, pulls
air out so well that if you had it... on high it would take your toupee right out the vent. It's
good for the normal usage on low but also great for venting. circulating air out of your rig.
Replaced 2 fans that were falling apart. Followed
instructions (YouTube is also very helpful). Did not have
same hole patterns a...s my old fans but didn't seem to be a
problem. Use some butyl tape and self leveling sealant,
install and wiring were pretty easy. Did both fans in one
afternoon. Seems to work very well, really moves the air out
of the RV. Time will tell on durability.
First, the fan is great, even on low speed. Installation was easy. But getting it to Canada involved significant
brokerage fees ...- nearly $50 CDN.
I called to register it for the warranty, and was assured that this wasn't necessary, as Fantastic Fan will take a
customer's word regarding purchase date.
However, the garnish trim was too small, and the manual provided an 800 number to order a deeper one. I
expected a charge and more brokerage fees. When I called to order it, the agent recalled my voice from the prior
call, a week before! I was delighted to learn that the garnish would be shipped totally free in three days, and I
have already installed it.
So, in a nutshell, you get a product made in one of the two countries noted for quality - U.S.A. and Canada - NOT
CHINA! And you add in terrific customer service.
Pros: The fan works much better than I had anticipated. Quiet and powerful.
Cons: Since we have an older model RV, we found that... there was a slight curvature to our
roof area where we needed to install the fan.
Therefore, we needed to do some sawing of the plastic to make it fit. The frame material
from our old fan was pliable, so easy to cut without a saw. The new fan had a rigid frame,
therefore, we had to do extra measuring and had to hand saw it to shape. This was the only
frustration, but a significant one.
DIY-installers beware! The supplied trim piece ("garnish") that fits into the roof-mounted fan assembly f...rom inside the RV is only 4-1/2" high.My previous fan's trim piece was 5-1/2" high. After I installed the fan assembly on the roof and then went to fit the bottom trim piece, I found that I had a 1/2" gap between the fan assembly and the final trim piece. When I called Dometic they noted that most roofs are now "thin" so they only send out the shorter trim. But I can buy a 6" high trim if I want. ($35 Plus $10 shipping from their recommended supplier.) There is no mention on the box or instructions to check for this first. If you buy this or any Dometic fan product, be sure to check before you start assembly. It is too late for me.
I bought this fan to replace the fan in our EVO travel trailer. I just needed a basic fan and this is an awesome fan, very quiet a...nd there is a gasket supplied for installation between the roof and mounting flange of the fan, no putty tape required. The "BUT" came in when I was installing this new fan. The instructions are terrible. There is only 1 page that refers to this model fan and most of the instructions book refers to the operations for remotes (in 2 languages) for other models. Second, if I was installing another of these fans, I would buy one size larger and a little longer screws and use washers. The screws supplied are flat headed screws and have a tendency to pull right down through the plastic flange when tightening the fan down to the roof and getting the fan and gasket to the roof snug. The screws can pull right gown through the soft plastic flange. If I were looking for another fan I would look for a fan that has a metal frame/flange that has some meat to it.
A replacement lid has to be purchased if you want a different 'color'. We have an opaque white replacement listed as SKU#61043. For a clear lid, our Technical Service Department @ 800.622.6264(M-F, 8:00-5:00 CST) can special order it as part# K1020-00 from the manufacturer.

can a heating unit be added
by Lou – December 07, 2015
December 07, 2015
I'm trying to purchase a unit that has a fan and heating unit
No, a heating element cannot be added to the fan vent. At this time, the only way to get a heating element in a vent configuration is to install a rooftop A/C that has the ability to add a heat strip or is a heat pump model which has heating & cooling ability.

What do I need to do to provide power to the fan?
by Anonymous – July 22, 2015
July 22, 2015
Have one in the bathroom, want to add one to the other vents - I don't think there is any power at those vents - how hard is it going to be to run wiring to them?
The optimal scenario is that power has been run next to the vent for factory installation of a powered vent. If not, a nearby light can be used to splice power from. Worst case scenario is having to run appropriately gauged wire to some sort of faraway 12V line or to your power center. Difficulty will depend on how far you need to go and how much insulation you have to get wiring through.
While the vent is not the same model as item# 19708 the installation process will be the same, here is a video for 'Installing the Fantastic Vent Fan in our RV'.
