Source for Shower Vent Cover

Does anyone have a source for the "upside-down pie plate" vent cover for the shower? Mine is missing and allowing rainwater into the coach.

In the meantime, why don't you...

....make one out of a pie tin or an old can?If your vent is like mine, you could probably walk around the grocery store with a tape measure and come up with something pretty quick. That, and a can of aluminum spray paint, and at least you're dry while you're looking....

Ya know...I thought about that. Maybe your post will put me over the edge and I'll end up with a dog food bowl up there! It's a simple single bolt through mount...right in the middle.

Heck, why not?

You'll come up with something for 1/10th the price of the Official Pedigreed Airstream Vent Cover, and it will look fine and work just as well. I'd try to find something aluminum or stainless, if you can. Remember, if the can is too tall, you can cut off just as much as you need....

That's what I needed!

Left a message for Sonny. Thanks for the source. The Dog Bowl (or cake pan or pie plate) was only to temporarily cover the vent. On our first trip the shower ended up doing double duty as a closet. When we got caught in a rainstorm in NJ it was amazing how much water came in through that thing.
