Default extractor fan

anyone know if theres an extractor fan available for t4's?
just bought mine and havent been away yet, but I'm guessing it gets pretty steamy inside when cooking, even with window open

I was just thinking about this myself to solve the moisture build up breathing problems in vans. How about something like this?



or try Marcle

most folk fit a roof light type thing in available in 400mmx400mm or 500mmx500mm. then there's the massive heki light things they are like a sun roof. all of which are available with a fan in them!

the other and easy fit option is a solar vent, as it's name suggests it's solar powered and needs a round 200mm (ish) hole in the roof. no need to get power to it. only downer is that you can't use it in the dark!

there are some solar vents with a built in battery so you can switch them on to work almost all the time including all night.

of course they are expensive and best to have two (if you want to blow air in as well as out)

see below for one example of what is out there.

The Reimo poptop has a ventilation gauze at the top front of the canvas allowing free flow of air and I would say an extractor fan is not really needed.

Personally I've not had much problems with steam etc when cooking. Most of the time you will have the door open for cooking anyway Money saved
