69 Tradewind fan hole plans/questions

Currently working on my 69 Tradewind renovation and trying to figure out what to do with the 3 vents holes I currently have.

The picture below shows the first two holes in question. The furthest hole was where a fan previously was and I am planning on putting a fantastic fan in that location.

Next to it is another hole that just had a vent cover on it. Does anyone know what the original intent of this was? Also does anyone have any good ideas what to do with this spot? I was thinking of installing a skylight here, thoughts?

I would have figured the middle hole was for an AC

The AC was actually where that dirty grimey square region is in the pic. That one I know for sure as it was horribly heavy and not fun to remove.

Are you talking about the weird thing thats just towards you in the photo from the farthest back vent?

I believe that was a directional vent for the pooper. You could "tune" in the right suction or intake.

Let me clarify what I meant in my first post.

In the image below:
Red circle: is the ?vent? in question
Green circle: is where there was previously a fan and I'm thinking about putting a new fantastic fan.
Blue circle: is where the AC was.

Since the red circle is right near the fridge vent, I'd have to assume that it's a vent in the galley. I'd add another fantastic fan there.
That way you'll have a skylight and fan.

I had thought about doing that as well but was debating if having two fans so close together was getting a little silly. Although having never spent a lot of time actually staying in airstream I could be very wrong.

The hole right behind the vent cover hole was for the tv antenna.

That's right. If you zoom in you can actually still see remnants of the tv antenna. I haven't fully removed that yet but it's on my list.

In our 1970 Overlander (27')that spot is the Astradome. It's kind of like a venting skylight and makes it much brighter inside. Vintage trailer supply carries them http://www.vintagetrailersupply.com/Astradome-Later-p/vts-279.htm
