I just installed mine on the flat, as close to the peak as the fan-mount would allow – after all, it was only a matter of about 2-3″.

Alternatively, you could mount a ceiling fan electrical box ON the peak, this would probably give you the clearance you need to mount the fan at the center – only downside, would be that you could probably see this box after the installation. This would require some careful placement, and some special bracing to get it secure.

Hope this helps.
