My main question is how do you do it without letting in dust and rain in?

You have a vent thats high up at the front, and close it when it rains.

You haven't mentioned what sort of canopy, so can't be more specific

Use an in line fan angled down so the rain doesnt get in and put an air filter on the end of it.

SantaAuz, I installed these vents made for yachts ($10 each), never had dust or rain in after I installed them. Because they are always open they allowed hot air to escape and even with the Waeco going the temperature in the canopy was cooler than the cabin when it was locked up.

I bought them from the chandlery at the local slipway, but any marine or boat sales business should have them or at least be able to get them in for you.
