thank you for answering. But it just don't look the same, the vent is about 2 feetlong oval shaped and the cover is probably plastic made. I made few research on google and I just can't find a picture of a '59 overlander roof

Frig vent

I have a 57 Overlander, hope this helps. Mine is centered over a rib and had aluminum screen on the inside of the outer skin. The cap was full of wasp nests when I bought it. Suggest you put screen on outside also. If your building your own, I don't believe it needs to be as tall as mine, unless your propane frig requires that much open area. Mine would have been damaged on a low branch if the furnace vent in front of it hadn't taken the hit. The base is 20" X 11.5". It was screwed onto the skin.

This won't help if you want to be 100% original, but I added this vent to my '59 Tradewind. It probably provides better draft than the original.

I have an never-used/uneeded *aluminum* cover, like/identical shape to the vent in markdoane's pic. You are welcome to it; pm me your info and I'll send it to you, but, if you need it faster, google for "rv refrigerator vent" as these are still made, often plastic now, and very reasonably priced. If you decide you want mine, be patient because I'm away for a few more days yet. In the meantime, if you look at the sideview pic of my AS, below if I'm successful or in my Registry if unsuccessful, you'll see I instead used a fairly standard screw-down Al vent cover for the top reefer exhaust vent. Just inside are two muffin fans (one 12v, other 120v) and it also has screen on the inside to exclude the critters. This vent has never leaked, ever, and that's many years since I installed the reefer, plus, it's my guess that its flat-ish profile has a slipstream advantage over a more-3D vent .
