Looking to replace black/grey tank vents

I have a 2001 Excella and am looking at the waste tank vents on the roof. They both are of the plastic type. One looks to have a cracked base flange and both need re-sealing if I keep them. I would like to replace both of them with a metal one if they are available. The factory website shows a plastic replacement with a built in bug screen barrier. I checked VTS and ODM and don't see what I'm looking for. Is there a source for a replacement vent in metal ????? Appreciate any help in sourcing these vents. In a pinch I can make do with the ones I have but if I need to go to the trouble to clean them up and re-seal I might as well replace with something better if I can find them.

Thanks all, See ya on the road sometime.

You can use the older type polished metal sewer vent pipe covers that Airstream used for about 40 years.

You will also need the separate gasket.
