Mod: Roof Vent


Superior ventilation is needed for an enjoyable journey in a multitude of climates. Whether it is raining and you’re locked up inside the van for days or you’re camping in record setting temperatures, the interior of the RV must remain dry and livable for you and your pets.

An additional floor vent is an integral part of that setup, that will enhance the natural flow of air throughout the vehicle.

This project is subdivided into four smaller projects, that are each documented with videos, photos and a step-by-step guides. When the project is completed, the entire guide will be made available as a FREE download below.
