Any hardware store would have a double outlet cover plate. Put one there, with longer screws to go into a thin piece of wood behind the hole.

I'm thinking some sort of light.

Computers manufactured by companies such as IBM, Compaq and millions of others are by far the most popular with about 70 million machines in use worldwide. Macintosh fans note that cockroaches are far more numerous than humans and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life form. -NY Times 11/91

Our Overlander has a little wooden shelf/ box like book case with a light right there. The light has a flex base that comes out about 6-8 inches and twists this way and that for evening reading.

I'm always up for giving opinions!

In looking at your picture, if it's the same configuration as my trailer, that would be the chamber behind the frig. If so, I think it's supposed to be somewhat sealed to vent the bad stuff out the frig vent. I don't think I would use a vent to cover it up. Use something that would seal the openings...."Mac"

What about a a light on one side & a metal panel on the other so you can post notes, schedules etc with magnets. We often receive magnets at rallies and we all know they don't stick on aluminum!

There are tons of cool vintage style metal signs out there - we have one in our Safari kitchen area here.

Replace the whole thing, that's the only way you'll be truly satisfied (this coming from a perfectionist)

A Nice clock

Count me in to the nice clock crowd. Depending on what type of decor you are doing inside your trailer you can put up just about anything. In my trailer a neon "Tropical Bar and Grille" clock sign would fit there perfectly and the mini LED/faux Neon unit would fit in the hole.

There are a number of reproduction porcelain signs and clocks available at that would be good candidates for a cover. A Route 66 might be appropriate. You can also get that flamed mailbox you’ve been looking for.

If you don't find anything you want to put in place of the other hole, why don't you just cut a piece of peel and stick veneer or glue a panel up to fit the entire easily accessable space of the divider and have no holes just as you would hang paper?

It also looks like you could put up an overhead corner cabinet or even a shelf or organizer that goes all across. Or maybe you could patch it and match the border filler with a great graining paint job and match. How about cutting it larger and putting in one recessed cubbyhole for stuff? Or extend the mounting decoratively of a flat panel tv or build an entertainment center of sorts.

I would start with trying to find out what the holes were originally for.
Then I would go techno geek and get creative. Speakers, sound system,
surveilance system, weather station, fake lab equipment, tank monitors,
built in mandolin tuner, battery monitor, or not. What about a little door
for throwing dirty socks?
