Do I need to drill drainage holes at the bottom like in the other more modern vents? Also is anyone putting screen inside to prevent hornets from making the ultimate home?

another quick question- what if I did not create a super tight seal around the vent allowing the rain water to leak out. There would not be much rainwater since vent is covered?

Just a quick note to say that this store is still going strong, still stocks these great aluminum vents AND still gets a chuckle when someone calls, identifies themselves as Airstreamers & want to order some vents. I ordered 2!!

Old thread, new question. Those of you who have used these, do they look strange mounting them on the trailer and them not being straight up and down? It seems to me it would not look right but what do I know?

I would really like to get some for my '64 project.

I thought that they would look like someone holding a couple of beer cans on top of their head but on my little Caravel I think they're cute, like little ears.

I still don't understand why the original plumbing stack vent on my 1980 Aistream has the rubber gasket and screws. I am going to attach this with buck rivets at 2" spacing and Vulkem like everything else. Is there a reason that the original uses a gasket instead of just being built to last much longer like the other seams on an Airstream?

It is so that you can take it apart for replacement of the rubber flashing. It is not just a gasket. Since the pipe can move up and down as the trailer is towed over bumps it is installed with a flexible rubber flashing. It will eventually crack and start to leak. Then you need to replace it. If you want to drill out rivets when it needs replacing go ahead.

The gasket material only last a couple of years, inlandrv.com has the vent covers, gaskets and screens!
