"Wanted"-vent pipe cover for Bambi II

I think I am going to need another of these vent "covers" for my 1964 Bambi II rebuild. I am relocating a plumbing vent tube and wish to keep everything looking original.

Anyone out there have a spare? Here are some pics of what I am hoping to find. Obviously, the pipe would come out through this...

I think you really need one of these or something similar. I'm pretty sure you have parts missing. Out of Doors Mart and Inland RV also carry these

I will go to this if need be. The only part missing is the pipe that went through the casting. I sealed under both of mine while renovating to keep water out. All plumbing is gone, gone, gone!

The pipe was open to the elements...not a great design, but that is the way it was designed. Thanks for the tip, though.

If you're relocating a plumbing vent, then move the cover you've got, and rivet a (properly caulked) circular aluminum patch over the former hole.

Not a bad design, either. The amount of precipitation that would go down the vent stack is trivial unless you live in the Olympic peninsula or south Louisiana, and that rainfall would only end up in your holding tanks anyway. Your home vent stacks are open to the elements as well. There is no harm in leaving your new vent stack open the way the old one was.
