RV just got hit by a microburst

That said it shattered all 4 roof vents. Shattered the fender skirts and a couple marker lights. I have looked on camper world for replacement vent covers but don't know if they are all universal. Would anyone know or be able to tell me where I can pick up vent covers that will fit. Also same with fender skirts.

My RV is a 2013 Rockwood 3025W Windjammer.

You can find fender skirts here. RV Fender Skirts for Travel Trailers | ABS, Tandem Fender Skirts | Fiberglass, Plastic RV Fender Skirts
You will need to measure the roof vents for size. Google roof vents for supplier.

I was thinking the exact same thing..... "of what"? Mind reading was never my forte.


It was hard to imagine so much damage from just a microburst of air. Not at all impossible if the vents were all dry rotted, but the Hail did help to clarify the extent of the damage.

Sorry. Should've been a touch more clear.
