Replacing a fan vent

I was poking at the fan trying to get it to work and cracked the cover my excuse it that it's a '75 and original so it was bound to be brittle! It was a fan with the six lights but I'd like to replace the whole thing since the fan doesnt work. Does anyone know where I can find a fan? I was looking at the out of doors mart site but I only see vents and no fans, which I guess would be ok but I don't know how to tell if it will fit, suggestions?? Thank you!
This is the one I was looking at
Elixir crank-up vent 31-1998 [31-1998] - $32.95 : ODMRV , Out-of-Doors Mart
Do I just email them and ask for dimensions, or are they all the same?

Keep looking. Look for " fantastic vent" I got ours from vintage trailer supply's web site. I had to move the original light fixture back a little but the new fan is awesome!

I moved the thread to the correct area.
I was missing fan on my 75 Trade Wind and got one for the cost of shipping from a member who had replaced his with a fantastic fan.

I think this may be the one you are looking for:
Motor for Airstream Galley and Overhead Vent 510228 [510228] - $64.95 : ODMRV , Out-of-Doors Mart
Inland RV Center Inc.

I got a MaxxFan instead of a Fantastik fan. MaxxFan rain can't get in. But everyone swears by, not at, Fantastic Fans customer service. MaxxFan also costs more. Oh, the main reason I got Maxx Fan was a great deal from mothership clearing out stock.

Well after I put a tarp on I was poking at the hole, it looks like the fan cover may have a double layer? One layer definitely broke but I was poking at the hole and there is still solid plastic.

I bit the bullet and replaced all three of the original vents with Fantastic Vents from Vintage Trailer Supply - they can supply them with the inside garnish thats curved to match the AS's ceiling - they work great, and come with a special grey hatch cover that's a close match to the aluminum skin...

Fan-Tastic Fan Vent

I installed one with the thermostat to operate automatically when things heat up inside...the other two are regular powered fan models...when all three are running, those fans really move the air - either in or out, crack a couple of windows and let the breeze flow all over your body...

Wow, I've never heard of a fan with a thermostat so it comes on when the temp goes up, that's awesome!
