Emergency hatches: Any same size fans?

Has anyone had success in locating a fan which would fit the existing emergency hatch opening?

Most fans seem geared to the rv standard of 14 x 14. Was hoping to avoid the extra work and just do a direct swap if possible.

Thanks!

Iíve seen exit vents for the emergency hatch spot that are 26 x 26 but none had fans.

Some have used very pricey boat hatches in that size.

After digging around, I came up with a youtube video (thanks to Josh on FB) which shows how to mount a maxxair fan directly into the existing hatch itself, while still maintaining the functionality of the hatch.



This will do just fine!

That's pretty slick. Our hatches leaked at the release lever, so we skinned over the holes with sheet metal and put in the Maxxair. Easy enough to do if you find your hatches spring a leak at some point. Keeping the hatch and also having a fan is the best of both worlds!
