fwiw: These are great products for traditional RVs & campers, but this style vent cover will not work on an Aframe's vent.
When the roof of an Aframe is folded down, the vent lid's opening end is front facing. Parked in the campsite, we raise the roof and the vent lid opens downward, as designed, to cover the vent and fan. With this configuration Aframe owners must be extra careful be in the habit of locking the vent lid closed in the preparation for travel.
If installed in the correct postion, the Maxxair style covers' vented part
would be forward facing during travel. It just wouldn't work on an Aframe.
