Why We Love Our Sirocco II Fans

They're the 'baby boomers on the road'.

There you are, away in your caravan, on one of those still, sticky nights that makes sleep difficult. No problem! Turn on the Sirocco II fan on the wall at the end of the bed. We have one each side so we can individually set the direction, the three-speed fan and the timer to either three, six, nine or even 12 hours – it’s just a matter of pressing a button on the side of the fan and an indicator light shows the timer setting.

Take it from us, having travelled to most corners of the country, the quiet breeze from the Sirocco II fan makes sleep much easier and more comfortable.

SiroccoAs the Sirocco II fans are 12V/24V auto-sensing and draw very little power, we can use them when we are off power as well. If we are on power and have the air-conditioning on, the Sirocco II makes our air-con even more efficient by circulating the cool air through to the bedroom. This is one of our favourite features of the Sirocco II.

In our van, these very effective fans have even been used to dry off some damp clothes or help settle the smoke alarm from the burnt toast – not that that ever happens of course!

We wouldn’t be without our Siroccos and use them every trip.
