chrome exhaust fan

anyone know where I can find a stove exhaust fan and the nice chrome cover? I'm ditching the ugly overhead exhaust hood and wanting to install the cool looking side wall chrome exhaust fan.

any tips to the location of these is much appreciated, thanks

Hi,
I took my Ventline to a sheet metal shop along with templates to change the contour.
They are cutting aluminum pieces that I will pop rivet on the original.
You could also do it in stainless if you wanted a shinier look.
I'm picking it up tomorrow.

I had the original sidewall mounted exhaust fan chrome plated at a local shop. I'll post a picture when I get home. I don't know where you could score an insidce cover. You'll also need the exterior aluminum cover that when opened, turns on the fan.

Since its gotten dark, I will take a few detailed pictures of the outside portion tomorrow. Here's the interior cover that I had chromed. Unlike the exhaust fan that was in the hood, this one turns on when you pull on the bead chain. The switch is outside and is activated when the cover is opened.

The outside cover looks to be about the same as a Hehr vent from the same era. Those are pretty readily available as people change out the Hehr's for Fantastic Fans. The inside part is going to be a bit trickier to come by - but many trailers of the same era used the same vent - so don't limit yourself to finding one form an Airstream. I know I have seen them occasionally on eBay and at the RV junk yard here in town. They might be painted - but that can be stripped if you want...

I Googled Sidewall Exhaust Fan and came up with one at VTS (done business with them and can recommend) and another source at mobilehomepartsstore.com (never heard of them, but another source).

Maybe one of these will work for you.
