I used tinted Lexan to cover the hatch hole, then mounted the Maxxair fan in it.

Another vote for Fantastic fan. It will take a little work to cut the hole out bigger, but that's what I would do. And I think it is only 20-30 watts. They work great. Not really a substitute for AC though if it's super hot. Much better than stale air that isn't moving though.

I find the Maxxaire and the Fantastic fans of equal quality and features. But when comparing apples to apples the Maxx is about 50% cheaper. Mine is 10 speeds, remote control, automatic rain censor.

You're right, surprisingly it doesn't give dimensions. But, yes, it is 14 x 14 standard vent size.

I don't see how Maxxair is "half the price". They're the more expensive of the two.
Comparing Fantastic and Maxxair, you can get a Fantastic vent about 20-40 cheaper.
