Regards
Peter

Have a look at Fantastic Fans. I had the cover on my one fan blow off in the wind and the solution my Trailer Guy came up with, was to replace it with a Fantastic Fan. Best thing I've done as the fans are great. I believe you can get a silvered cover with it when it's ordered. BTW it meant I lost a roof light and interior vent cover, but it was a good trade off to make.

This one is only $6 from VTS. Metal Roof Pipe Cover

Get the butyl tape when you make your order. I also used the larger sized pipe insulation around the actual vent pipe.

A trick someone else showed me. Buy a stainless steel sink strainer from the kitchen dept in any store. I actually then cut the rim around it and pushed it to fill the inside of the vent. That keeps wasps from making nests. You can put just a couple of the wires on the outside of the rim, and the rest inside. That friction fit will keep this wire "cage" just on the inside so it maximized the space. If you just cover the pipe, the wasps can still make nests around the vent, so it may not clog the tube, but not sure if it will work as well.

If you want a replacement that looks like the one you have go to Vintage Trailer Supply. Inland sells the newer style stack covers. Since I had two original vents in good shape on my 68, I went with the ones from VTS so all three would look the same. Both styles work and don't leak if installed correctly, it just a matter of which look you like.

arodriguez60 has it right. Original and the newer replacement. Note...there is no "cap" for it. Be sure the base seal is good.

#8 on that same thread had the phone number.
239-543-3300

I called on 3/21 to order one.
I am expecting it any day now.
$ 9.99 part
$13.50 shipping
$ 1.41 tax

$24.90 total

I did question the tax because I am not in the FL and they do not have a store in WI. I got the impression they are a one store operation and don't do many phone orders. I was not going to argue for a buck.
