A/C vent needed

I am looking for an A/C Vent for the front room of my Overlander. The ideal device would be a huge Gasper type vent, or one that resembles the bottom vent of a electric hand dryer.
The opening it must fit is 6in in diameter.
Any leads would be much appreciated.
The picture below shows the A/C outlet in the lower galley cabinet. This is where this new vent will go, to deflect the air either to the dinette, or upwards while cooking, or even backwards for extra cool air in the sleeping quarters.

On Edit: I tried the louvered vent that is visible in teh picture, with the louvers ppointing up, but the louvers have way too much restriction.Te reduction in air output with this type of louver is not acceptable.

Uwe- I'd call or visit an AC or commercial HVAC supply house. I remember some years back that there was a small hose (about what we use in these trailers) AC ducts with round swivel registers... I'd have to search my archives to see if I can find the supplier name. I don't think the big box stores will have what you need.

I'll post again if I come up with a name.

Our friend's SOB motor home has those outlets for the furnace, they are 3-4" across, and swivel. They are brown in color. The motor home is a 1980's Coachmen, maybe you could find one at an RV salvage yard, if you can't find new.

Gasper

This my sound a little odd, but a recessed swivel light fixture with the guts ripped out came to my mind. Its the closest thing I could think of that looked like a large gasper vent.

Looks like these folks may have something you could adapt....

Aluminum vents & louvers for commercial and industrial applications that are better than plastic or vinyl louvers and vents.

Now that there is a brilliant idea...will consider for sure. A large chrome eyeball trim, modded for air direction.

Thank you very much for digging that up!!

I followed the link above and found the rest of their Air vent treasures. Looks like this one wold be even better than the eyeball - more air transfer, and hopefully less noise.

Looks like it would stick out from the wall less also.

Indeed. Less chance of shin damage while cooking vigorously. I can also use the NTX model for the bedroom vent.
