I think I read here that they are sometimes available at Rally s and we could have them installed then. Or maybe you know of somewhere with better pricing in the mid atlantic area? We live in lower Delaware.
Thanks for your help!

In case you're interested in how our story played out.....
We got in touch with Frank Yensan (62overlander) to see if he had any suggestions. Turns out that he is a Fantastic Vent Distributor! So for only $35 dollars more than the dealer was going to charge for the 2 fans--not installed-- we now have 2 fans installed and also the little portable 12v
We couldn't be more pleased with how things worked out. We have quality installation of terrific fans by a skilled craftsman. The fellows at the dealer really weren't too interested on working on our trailer--they would rather have sold us a new one. Vintage Airstreams are Frank's passion. He's a terrific resource if you're any where near Baltimore. Even if you're not close it would be worth the trip to have someone who really knows and cares about your trailer work on it.
So--Thank You Frank!! Hope to see you soon,
