Lets talk about FANS in the trailer :)
I live in the deep humid hot south! I want to install fans in my trailer. I have this model, a three horse slant load with tack/dressing room, but mine is just full aluminum not painted. It gets HOT in there especially with three horses inside. I want to install three roof vents or fans and I thought about putting in some little fans at their butt end. What do y'all have? I'm crossposting this in the endurance forum too :)
the little 12 volt fan isnt gonna do squat, insulate the roof and get it painted would do more.
Okay so insulating... spray in, insulation board from home depot? What's the most effective? Can I buy the spray in kind at Home Depot, or is that something that would have to be done by a pro?
Insulating the roof is a good idea. Also installing roof vents helps a ton with airflow. My trailer has the kind that you can either open facing front or facing back, so you can decide how much extra air you want. All summer I open them facing front, but it is nice to open facing back in late fall/winter/early spring when it cold but I still want air moving for respiratory health, but maybe not direct flow on the horse.
The only problem I worry about is if I were to get stuck in a traffic jam in the summer. Vents/windows won't do much if you're not moving.
I recomend these lil buggers here: Fantastic Fan
I had 2 of em on my camper trailer when I was down welding in South Texas, they could change the air in that 24' trailer in about 30 minutes.
Always kept the thing smelling nice which says a lot when you have a sweaty welder and a dog staying in the trailer.
They were nice also because they have a rain sensor installed in them so if it starts to rain they automatically close.
