Iím trying to decide on ventilation equipment for a new hard-sided truck camper. My goal is to reduce the number of camper penetrations and improve the general efficiency of the unit. The unit Iím focusing on is a Northstar Arrow 8.5.
The camperís standard equipment includes a Fantastic Fan (with thermostat), insulated bathroom skylight, and optional Mach Polar Cub 9200BTU AC with 5600BTU heat strip. It also includes a standard cooktop vent that vents on the driver side. Iíve decided on the 12v Tundra fridge (so no refer vent on the roof will be needed). Iíve also selected the Heki insulated exit vent in the cabover.
Should I keep the Fantastic Fan? Should I upgrade to the Max Vent?
Should I keep the insulated bathroom skylight?
Should I keep the cooktop fan?
What about replacing the fans with a couple solar vents (e.g., Sunsei Solar Vent)?
Should I use the optional Polar Cub? Any other smaller AC units to consider? Any of them not roof mounted?
Iíd love to hear first hand experiences with any and all equipment (good and bad). Thanks. Bob
