I bought both an aluminum fridge vent cover and a plastic stove vent cover from VTS some years ago. They worked fine. Take a look at their on line catalogue.

Vts

Thanks for the link....I have already spent a bunch of money with VTS in the last three weeks..lol

But they do not have either of the items in aluminum...I actually already bought the fridge cover...I was not happy with it and have decided to search for an aluminum unit...I have the stove vent in the cart but it too is plastic....sigh...the search continues

You might check Silver Trailer Supply in Utah, or OutdoorsMart in North Carolina, or Inland in California for an aluminum fridge vent and stove vent.

I thought I bought mine from VTS, but maybe I don't remember correctly. Like you, I use VTS for a lot of stuff.

Hi: Well, your project is a classic case of "while I'm at it." Maybe you lifted the body of the frame too.

If you are going to do all that work, the mid sixties Caravel is an excellent choice. Seemingly they are very popular vintage Airstreams. I saw several at the Rocky Mountain Vintage Airstream Club rally last month. I also saw the Globetrotter 20, Safari 22, and Trade Wind 24. I don't think I saw a Sovereign 31 at all.

Quite a transformation in a pretty short time period. It looks real good.

Did you change your interior lights to LED?
