Pros:

smoke or black covers reduce heat into the rig

You can open the vents rolling down the road and not worry about rain or wind issues

Keeps most of the rain out when parked. Driving rain can still get in if it's coming from the right direction.

Helps keep critters out when your vents are open


Cons

Cost

If you buy cheap unhinged units you have to remove them when checking or redoing seals

One more thing to get hit on the roof

I have the maxx airs
Installed myself very easy
The one for the Fantastic fan is a little different but just as easy to install
I did the white on the Bath and living room for the most sky lighting
Smoked on the bedroom for darkness but it still leaves in light
In a pounding driving rain one night I could feel a light mist on my face so they really are nice to have for venting on rainy days
Harder for bugs to get in too.
They don't really stick up much above the air conditioner so no big deal
I'm a big fan

When we got our new unit we had covers put on. Found they restricted the air flow so much we took them off. We have a 2860 with 3 fantastic fans.
