12v oscillating fan
#17
Every cheap 12v oscillating fan I have ever used in RVs or in trucking over a few decades was noisy and didn't last very long. This includes the ones you typically see on amazon or ebay with the spring loaded clamp...they are often available at truck stops, auto parts stores, and walmart.

The hobby motor, the plastic gears, and the mechanical oscillating parts are cheap, they wear out or fail not long after you start using them. The 'speed control' is often a simple resistor, and the clamp and arm get wobbly or loose after awhile. I don't know of a 'not cheap' one. If there is actually a good one you can buy for RVs, I have not seen it.

If you really want a decent oscillating fan, then a small 12v to 120v inverter and a household desktop oscillating fan might be an option.
Wondering about Wandering.
