since your post is a direct reply to mine I will answer in this way.....I suppose I should have said...."all the vent covers I HAVE DEALT WITH were translucent no matter the color".....I've installed three, two whites and one black, ....all were Camco brand and all were translucent, not a true sun block until I had sprayed several coats of black paint to the inside surface,........that's a trick I learned to make my truck's "Auto Ventshades" a true sun blocker and not just a sun shade..... it was very annoying to have the afternoon sun to shine thru my Auto Ventshades as I would drive home from work, .....I found that after a good coat of paint to the under side I had a true sun blocker, not just a translucent sun shade........and it worked the same with the three trailer vent covers that I've installed......

On our old tt we had the max air II vents. We had a white one over the bathroom and a smoke one over the bedroom. The white one was cheaper. The smoke one let in a little less light and we could see out the vent over the bed better. We let them go with the old tt. The fiver has a black one over the bathroom vent because that was the color they had. I like the black one the least but it doesn't really matter. Get the one that matches your trailer the best. Here is a pic of my old tt. The front grey hump is the smoke cover. You can see the rear white one easier from the single the pic was taken.

I had white ones on our Sierra along with the vent pillows with the reflective foil on one side. Did a great job keeping heat and cold out. I also installed the Vent Stik knobs on the vents, as most were taller than I could reach. The Stik helped with installing and pulling the pillows out also.
