I'm curious why you didn't use the existing hole from the emergency roof hatch instead of cutting a new hole in the roof for installing the fan?

Either way it's looking great. Glad to see you got it up and running again. Rock On !!

Thank You. The front emergency hatch has been extended to 2'x3' for a sky light.

Awesome, that makes sense. I'll be doing the same over my shower area to allow me to stand up straight.

Hope you have a "plug" for that puppy. Saw a rig with two about that size and the owners soon discovered how much heat came through them (they were in New Mexico). They made foam fillers to fit up into the openings on hot days. Just a thought.

Yeah, the filler panels are easily made or sourced from ebay. problem solved.
I've got two motorized Fantastics and one static. They're pretty nice units.

Ya may end up having some foam to put in there but will all depend once we actually start living in it. Sure do love the ambient light it provides though.

if it were me I'd let the light abound in and just crank up the air-conditioner when it gets too hot!..

I have a car with a plastic fixed webasto roof.. and I never close the little slider thing. . it gets warm but crank up the air and no issues..

Thats good for summer. In the winter, its best to stick some foam up there. Or head to FL.

Ya the AC is going to be amazing, hopefully the spray foam I put in the other day will help out as well. Hoping for it to feel like a walk in cooler lol.
