The WindowMaxx vent

I finally got the WindowMaxx vent installed today.

I hated to drill the 6 screw holes into the Casita.  Sure hope it really is waterproof!

It will be nice to be able to leave a window open to keep the Casita aired out when we’re not camping –without being worried about a sudden shower drenching the upholstery.  And the ventilation when we are camping in the rain will be welcome.

My motivation to do anything else in this heat is almost nil.


I have just added a web page with photos of my Casita Twin Bed Mods and New Decor.

  1. Your handiwork looks fantastic as always! I agree with you about the heat.

    • Thanks, Kim. I hate to wish away my life, but I sure will be glad when summer is past!

    Don’t know why they ever quit putting in jalousie windows. They have the sliding windows and now you have to buy a little jalousie thing to put in those. So let us know how well it works in a gulley washer. Does it have a screen? Kinda hard to see well.

    • Cam, I would LOVE to have jalousie windows.

      No screen…. the existing window screen is behind the vent still when the window is open.

  3. Maybe I’m not seeing it right, but from that picture it looks as though your louvers are slanted the wrong direction… with the bottoms in rather than out. If that’s the case, then it will funnel the water right to your interior! Those things are directional, so you have to order the right type for the window you have! That one looks like it should be turned around and put on the other end of the window! I hope I’m wrong, and that you didn’ go to all that work for nothing!

    • Hi, John, appreciate your commenting!

      But the vents are facing down, in spite of what the picture looks like. 🙂

    Great job!

  5. Weird!! My rear window opens from the other side. Guess mine, or yours one, was installed backward. Either way, a good looking job.

    • Jerry, it feels weird having it open from that side, but I figured all of them were that way. Larry at Little House Customs sized it for me and predrilled the holes. So that must have been standard installation in on the 2005 models.

      Anyway, it covers the open window, so I’m happy! 🙂

    Looks like a great job!!

    • Elizabeth, I was so afraid I would mess up that I studied the directions for two days to make sure I understood it!

    We are needing the covers now! It has rained for the past 48 hours (Mt Pisgah).glad you got yours from little house!

    • Oh, Lynne! You are at Mt. Pisgah campground? The pictures look like heaven. I’m hoping to get there in August.

      Are you staying in the RV or the van and pop-up section? Are a lot of people running generators, or is it pretty quiet?

  9. Looks smart. My new place has the windows that crank out so maybe I won’t have that problem.
