Yes. The top two photos show one installed on the trailer Brad remembers inspecting at our rally:
It was a very nicely built aftermarket cooler and vent. It can be used in arid climates as an evaporative cooler by putting some thin or rolled up wet towels on the screens; cool air will soon grace your trailer. It can be used as a widow vent on rainy and windy days to some keep air circulating through your trailer. It was a thoughtful design well executed, a cool accessory for any trailer.
