WE bought a 83 300 turbo deisel MH last year that has hail dimples. They sorta add charcter to it as our gray hair and wrinkles do to us. It is a sign that we have survived so far. over all it was in good condition. As we use it we are finding small things that need attention. This forum has been a great help in doing the needed repairs. Good luck to you on your roof vents.

We had a friend who lost their vent cover while on the road in a wind/rain storm last year. Not having any "normal" supplies readily available for this type of fix, they took an umbrella in the trailer, stuck it through the vent opening then opened it and tied the handle down to some cabinets inside! Quick thinking and on-hand improvisation kept their trailer dry until the next town and a more permanent fix was available ~ it musta looked pretty silly going down the road!
