Lexan does not restrict UV.

The milk white and solar gray covers both reduce the UV that can enter the coach.

The solar gray, however, does let in more light and also allows a person to see thru them.

I used the solar gray astrodome lid from Inland Rv, worked out great!
I went with the Fantastic vent from VTS. They had the low profile lid with the all grey interior. The outer part of the fan body is plastic. I used the screws that came with the fan, didnt use the gasket and used a LOT of Trempro!

About a month ago, I finished installing the three roof vents. It was a little more of a job than I had anticipated, the originals were well glued in. I opted with two vents with metal covers and a Fantastic fan, metal cover, over the rear bathroom. All work great . I have left the inside trim loose with plans to purchase some type of overhead lighting. Vents were purchased from Vintage Trailer Supply and I was well pleased with their service.
Thanks to all who gave (and continue to give) this first time Airstream owner help from this wonderful website.
