    I had a 1" latex topper I kept from my old rtt, which I cut up and put on top of the 2" gfc foam, making it 3", but only on the large panels since I have the old tent material which I wanted to leave room for when closing up with the square panels in place.

    Guess I’ll be cancelling that order real quick. Thanks for pointing that out !

    Planning on using it on top

    Went full send!
    Finished up just before it started raining on me.

    1” bolts were too long. I wasn’t sure how much Butyl Tape or Lap Sealant was going to space it out so I just used the ones I had. They stick down a little obviously but when I get shorter screws for the shroud it should still cover them ok I suppose.
    Maybe I’ll cut them off? Not sure yet?
    The corner Tee Nuts are still going to show. That’s my fault for drilling the wide ones when I originally had plans of adding the 1/2” spacer to the inside.
    I’ll live with that.

    As far as testing it goes, I haven’t wired it yet.

    Looks awesome!

    So you didn’t use the 1/2” spacer?

    Nope. Realized it’s not needed. I thought way too hard about this. Glad everyone else chimed in though. Helped a lot.

    Do 3/4” machine bolts though instead of 1”. Lol

    Not sure if your sealant has to cure or not - but either way, couldn't you swap the bolts out one at a time without upsetting the seal too much?

    Yeah I could. Just run them back in with some sealant one at a time.
    It would probably be okay.

    Great job on the fan @2ayne ! Almost looks “stock”. How’s the clearance when it’s closed? Do the cushions touch the fan at all?

    I camped with the fan for the first time last night. It makes it so much nicer to move air through the tent. I'll post up my wiring pictures later on, but you will love having the fan. My wind deflector also worked perfectly. We drove over 1,000 miles in the last two days with a ton of strong head winds and crosswinds and everything has held up great.

    How does a 1" mattress topper feel compare to the 3" that came with the GFC?

    Nice job on the install and wind deflector. Looks professional and a creative way to make and install the wind deflector.

    Wassup with all these GFC fan boys?!?!? Bahaha ....I’ll walk myself out but before I go can someone tell me if the gfc is compatible with the rubber pieces that come with stock tonneau cover? It’s the two pieces that help seal the bed near the cab.

    @STravis @2ayne Did either of you look at this one? https://www.etrailer.com/RV-Vents-and-Fans/Maxxair/MA00-03801.html
    From the FAQs, it's fixed at 200 CFM, but I like I wouldn't have to mess with opening and closing the lid. The only thing is would I have to mount it backwards (basically ramming air into the GFC), or if it was mounted correctly, would it still block rain even when open?
    It also looks like it'd be a little more flush with the ceiling. I might try to find a place local where I can look at both.
