I just purchased and installed this MaxAir. I like the way it matches my Dometic air conditioner. I had posted here a month ago about my bathroom vent cover wearing out. Hopefully the MaxAir will delay that for the next time.

I would like to find a MaxxAir/Fan 1200T. We had one on our mh and traded it a couple years ago, for a new mh. Went to get a new 1200T for the new mh and found that they were no longer made.
We have tried to find one, but have struck out there, would settle for a good used one.

I just installed 3 of these AeroFlo vent covers, made by Camco. I really like them. They're a bit more aerodynamic than the single Maxxair cover that I had over the bath vent; these are vented at the rear and the sides, and the entire top half lifts (2 screws) for full access to the vent for cleaning.

Thanks for sharing that. It looks low profile. Does it allow the vent to raise much?

Vent covers are the first mod I do on a new rig. Should be standard equipment

Agreed - every little mod or repair makes me feel better about my rig. I thought it would be hard to line up the vent but it went smoothly.

It's actually only about an inch shorter than the standard version, though it's longer, so a bit more aerodynamic. Still allow the vent to open probably 3/4 of the way.

Mine too - about 3/4 way.

I went one step further and removed the exiting vents and upgraded to the Maxxfan Deluxe low profile vent fan

The air sticking to the flat rear of the vent is what creates drag/wind resistance. A model A ford is much more aerodynamic in reverse than going forward.
