I think you can find a new cover if you're patient. Many owners are putting in Fantastic Fans. I'd recommend a fantastic fan to you--they create a very strong draft, something none of the old vents did. You'll be glad you did. It's really not that hard, except you need some kind of contraption to get you up on top without oil canning and creasing the shell.

Order of vent/interior wall installation


Thank you so much for this SUPER helpful thread - it made removing my vents so much easier than it would have otherwise been. I'm doing a full monty and have the interior walls and electric completely out. I don't want to begin installing insulation and electric until I know the trailer is watertight which would involve installing the ceiling vents and making sure they're sealed. BUT most of the threads on vent installation are not during the full monty renovation process, and the interior walls, insulation, electrical, etc. are already in. So what's the correct order here? (I plan on installing 2 vents with fans and one skylight)

1. Install and seal vents --> electrical + insulation --> interior walls

2. Electrical + insulation --> interior walls --> install and seal vents

3. Install exterior portion of vent (is this a thing?) --> electrical + insulation --> interior walls + interior portion of vent
