This is my neighbor's vent. The trailer is from the 80's. I'm not finding anything that looks like it to replace it. So what now? :/

Replace the whole thing, not just the cover. It looks like it leaks like a sieve.

You guys at the beach or in a private backyard?
Another pic zoomed out might help.
The vents are screwed down into the plywood roof, and then covered with goo.
You will need to scrape away the sealant and expose the screws.
All while trying to be careful and not stab a hole into the roof material.

She lost her husband a few years ago and is pushing 80. She's having the roof recoated next month by another neighbor. That will seal it up.

My question was... are they still making this cover? Or would another one they are making now with a slightly different design for this vent frame?

Bummer man. New cover and frame might be the best bet if a neighbor is redoing the roof. Nice of you guys to help her.

Probably not.... but hole is a standard size that a new different cover should fit.
Good luck and nice to see you helping her out!

First see if you can get it off.
If you haven't done this before Here is a short video that will help you.


Then see what type vent lid you have using this to match up the hinge type,shown in the lower corner of each picture.

If that does not work you may try This One

You may need a new seal that goes on the metal edge this will make it a tight seal This is what you need

Replace like this
