Vent Cover Color ?

I'm planning on putting in a Fantastic Fan. The question I have is which cover is best? I was thinking about an insulated white cover, but does the clear or translucent give you a big benifit with additional light.
If you could choose again what would you install?

Gary, I think an insulated white cover is the way to go.
Clear or translucent might give more light but will allow harmful solar UV rays to do their nasty thing.

Gary,

To me it depends on where the fan is being installed IMHO. In the front lounge, any will do. In the bedroom I would want insulated. If you only have one vent because your trailer is small, then it is hobsons choice

I have had or have had all three. The tinted cover is nice, it acts like a skylight. The translucent is nice too, no glare, but light comes in and The UV is not an issue. The insulated domes are 100% light blocking.

I currently have 2 insulated and one translucent installed in my MH. The translucent one is in the galley section, where there is a lack of light as it is.
