On the way home from our recent trip we spent the last night in Sioux City NE, with night time temps in the mid 20s. It was kind of late and pretty chilly when we pulled into camp, so I started cooking pasta right away -- forgot to open the vent for the range hood as I made a pasta dish inside. I was surprised at how quickly the windows fogged up, and how long the smell of garlic persisted in the trailer after we got home.

I like the range hood, but I keep thinking there should be a better way to do the venting. I wonder if anyone has replaced the noisy fan with something quieter like computer fans, and perhaps changed the outside damper for something that doesn't have the little tabs on the outside.

I'm guessing that this was supposed to be "I just use a piece of Reflectix insulation...". That's the type of foil-coated "bubble wrap" insulation which Escape has used.

correct, reflected and then seal bottom air tight, same for the bath window and bath vent.

Can a MaxxFan keep the interior to about 75F in the summer heat?

This would be dependant on a couple factors, like how hot it got cutting the day, and most importantly how cool the nighttime temps are.
