1965 Astrodome replacement alternatives

I have lost my Astrodome for the second time on our Safari. I am wondering before I purchase another cover if anyone has found an alternative with a fan for the bigger opening. I like the fantastic fan in the rear vent and I would like to do something similar for the larger front opening.

Good Luck

That does make much more sense... I went ahead and bought another vent cover but I will keep this idea in mind if I lose another one. It would be very nice to have another fantastic fan in the trailer.
