anyone have some aluminum roof vents they would like to part with?

looking for two aluminum roof vent covers 14"x14" condition not important, as long as aluminum section is intact.

anyone have some leftover from a fantastic fan install?

I have a complete assembly from a '78 and may have another from a 75 although that one might have some damage. I need to do some checking. I'll let you know unless someone else comes up with something better.

I may have a couple coming available in a month or so. If I don't offer in about a month PM me. Mine have plexiglass panels in the center of them.

John,
I am going to be switching them out soon. I am waffling back and forth between the Fantastic and the new MaxAir about the same price, but totally different design concept.

I see that Camping World has a sale on the Maxx Air vent right now for $207.

While I hear the Fantastic can be left open during travel, the Maxx Air seems a bit better designed for this as well as for being able to vent in rain. Being able to keep an exhaust vent going during a rainstorm seems to be a worthwhile capability to me.

Then there is the Shureflo which will circulate air when closed as its unique feature.

What I am leaning towards at this point is a MaxFann in the rear near the bath area and a Fantastic fan in the front ...best of both worlds I am going to keep the center vent in the kitchen as stock, along with the orginal light fixture. However the light fixture is getting an update to fluorescent.
