1974 TravelEZE Restore Frig Vent help
« on: March 26, 2017, 07:59:37 PM »
We are in the middle of restoring a 1974 TravelEZE Towable, and I am struggling looking for the refrigerator vent replacement. Does anyone have any idea what I am looking at?

Are you looking for one that is visually identical, or just a functional roof vent for it? Newer vents are generally a more streamlined shape, but the fit is determined by the vent base duct underneath.  Pull that cover off and measure the vent base (usually rectangular). 5x20 is a fairly typical opening size, but there is also a 4.5x18 that might be a closer fit.

You could probably change the vent base if the existing one is an oddball size. Looks like the caulk around the old one needs to be stripped anyway, and once you do that replacing the vent base is usually easy enough.

You could try Ebay if you want something closer to original. Sometimes you find oddball stuff. Also consider the big RV salvage yards, e.g. Visone RV or Colaws. They have online access for finding parts.
