1987-32' Excella Vents & Dents

Just got an Excella w/ Suburban and excited to get to get 'er going. Couple of questions tho. I cannot find a replacement roof vent. Does anyone know where to get the roof vent that pops straight up. My old one is both plastic and metal. The only ones I see online are the hinged type. Also, there are a couple of issues outside. The storage lockers up front and in the rear are rusted out. Are there any replacements out there you know of? And there is a dent in the front port side corner. I see some 'streams with front cover panels in stainless. Are these hard to install or where can you find these? Thanks. See you on the Road! Check the pic out of my rig.

Nice coach, we had one just like it. See if you can post the pic in a jpeg so it can be enlarged to see the details of the dent.

That does not look THAT bad since it looks like only the front panel will have to be replaced, no bondo, no repair. Good luck, hopefully Andy will come on.

You can get rock guards from a number of places online, a search should find you some. From your picture it looks like the rock guard will cover the dent, if there's no damage on the inside, and it could be hidden, then no point getting it fixed, unless it really bothers you......

Rock guards are for the windows, which you already have.

You are asking about a "segment protector".

The top of that protector is about 11 inches below the rockguard, as measured on an Airstream in our shop.

Old Roof Vents

I believe the original metal "straight-up" Roof vents were made by Hehr.. Noisy tiny metal fan blade not very effective... No longer available, and far less effective than Fantastic Fan brand vent/fans.... Come in various models with thermostats and rain sensors and remotes, or just 3 speeds and reverse.. If you get Fantastic Fan, be prepared to ask factory for complimentary ivory plastic cuurved bezel that fits inner ceiling far better than stock flat white plastic unit...

The small tinted pop-up vent cover in bathroom is still available, from Airstream or other RV parts sources....

The segment protector would probably be a good investment even if you replace the dented panel. It could hide a good part of the dent if you don't replace the panel.
