Camping World has a $59 installation deal on almost everything right now. I think I will go that route with my Maxxair fan.

Do you happen to remember how thick those ribs were? I just got a roof vent and looking to do the same thing, but don't have my van parked nearby to measure them myself.

Lucky for you, I tore my rotator cuff on my left shoulder back in January. Therefore nothing I wanted to do in the van has been done. So I just want out and measure the wood that I used, they are 1 -1/2 in. square. The left and right side pieces fit inside the raised rib of the roof metal, and are a few inches longer than the opening. The front and back pieces are cut to fit in between these, but you'll have to trace and cut the notches for the roof ribs. All and all it's a pretty easy job. The hardest part for me was getting up the nerve to cut a hole is something I just paid a lot of money for. I covered the area on the roof where I would be cutting with blue masking tape. Then I drew the opening on the tape itself. This protected the finish on the roof when I cut the opening with a jigsaw. Just remember, measure twice, cut once. On second thought, Measure three or four times, then cut. I hope this helps.
