Hi tin can luv,
We have been selling numerous Fantastics to "Airstreamers". We are mentioned further down this thread by "Dwight"
Presently CW has a sale on the 4000r. It is $109.00 or $99.00 for "club" members plus an additional $10.50 for shipping. Total cost $119.50 or $109.50. We can not compete presently with those prices. Here is what you get: a 4000r with a low profile base, standard smoked dome and white interior--no other choices. We try to stay below CWs "club" prices in overall cost --vent model and their additional shipping charges. Some people think that they get $1.00 shipping for items over $75.00 but you will see some items have additional shipping and vents presently are one of them.
From the standpoint of the Low profile base , most older Airstreams have a 1 1/2" roof to finished ceiling thickness. Using a low profile base makes the lift knob protrude about 1 1/8" below the ceiling on this model. Most vents we have sold to "Airstreamers" have been the high profile base because it offers less protrusion of the lift knob into the headroom and it was the one in use when the "Aistream Garnish" was designed.
The low profile base was placed into production around 2000.
We offer a choice of dome style, flat or standard, 4 dome colors and a choice of "Airstream Garnishes" in white or off-white.
Some of the "wide" body Airstreams can use a flat garnish and this provides an additional interior color of gray.
The easiest way to check what you need is to take a straight piece of cardboard and cut it to 16 1/2" , go into the Airstream and place it in the center, side to side. If you have a gap in the middle to the ceiling of 3/8" to 5/8" an "Airstream Garnish" would look nicer.
For those worried about installation we have various websites of owners who documented their installation of their Fantastic. It is located at http://members.aol.com/fantasticvent/installation.htm
If any of you have other site we don't know about please send them to me.
I hope this is not to much hype for the business. I hope some education has occured with some knowledgeable consumers
