    Hi folks we're looking at buying a 12v fan and wondered why the fan- tastic fan is around£75 compared to others at a lot less, what is the difference and which would you recommend ? Thanks in advance Kevin.

    I think this is similar to the "Endless breeze" fan that I got in the USA a few years ago - it was USD45....... However the above quoted price looks about right for UK.

    Pricing apart, it is a really good bit of kit - three way power with built in rechargeable, fitted D size batteries and of course 12V plug in. Very quiet in operation; a good piece of kit but not for £75

    Just checked and the endless breeze fan I am lookin at is just 12v but it looks good, seen it on you tube, found them for £55 delivered but 10 to 14 days delivery on eBay, does anyone know if they are more readily available, hoping to be away soon depending on arrival of grandchild, cheers

    Sorry, nothing like the endless breeze which is free standing and portable.
    the fan-tastic vent is a roof mounted 12v only fan

    Sorry to interrupt your post but there is a mechanical ceiling fan in the new van i have on order. Am i right in saying that as well as extracting they also blow air into the van? I beleive it is situated over the kitchen / dinette area.

    The one in ours (majestic 155) does both Dave, but we still want a portable one just in case.

    Another vote for the Endless Breeze. It's a great bit of kit and IMHO well worth the money.

    http://www.fantasticvent.co.uk/product/FV1100WH/ENDLESS+BREEZE This is the guy that imports them into the UK. He doesn't do it as a full time job however so may not be any quicker.

    If you Google it you will find other stockists but not at the eBay price you mentioned.

    Are the ceiling fans or free standing fans noisy?

    We had a Fantastic Fan fitted in our RV from new, it's ceiling mounted, variable speed and thermostatically controlled , not too noisy , a useful extractor.

    Fan-tastic is a 12v 3 speed reversible ceiling fan.
    depending on model they are reversible and thermostatic, except models 1200 and 1250, and have a rain sensor to auto-close the outer cover if it rains, except 1200, 1250 and 2250.

    Its all here....... http://www.fantasticvent.com/fan-tastic-vent-s-retail-12-volt-fans.html
