I think you want the vents about 1/4 inch off the roof to stop a build up of debris over time. If they are tight to the roof like my dealer did they will build up a mess and create mould on the roof membrane around the vent base cover.

I was up on the roof of our trailer today to have a look at 2 vent covers that I want to install the Maxair onto, and was surprised to see that the sides of the vents were made of plastic and not aluminum...will it still be ok to secure the brackets into the plastic as opposed to having an aluminum side?
