Anyone using this brand of air vent?

Anyone using this brand of air vent versus the erPOD by Airkrafters? Definitely less expensive and is why I am asking if anyone is using this or is there another less expensive alternative that you have installed? I am adding additional return vent between the existing two and based on this forum that seems to be a very economical improvement in air flow and cool down.

I am installing them in my Airstream. I saw another Airstream, at a rally, that had installed them. They have more shine than the other brand but look great! Because they are not aluminum, I am going to put a gasket in place between them and the aluminum.

Steve, when you come up with a viable gasket, please share. Hard to find thin gaskets the right size, so far.

I bought a couple and plan to have a friend 3D print a backer piece shaped like the erPOD by Airkrafters backer plate. These are way cheaper thank the erPOD but require a little work. I will let you know how they are after I get the parts printed.
