Hi everyone

Can anybody point me in the right direction where I can purchase fridge vent covers that match the colour of the vents on a 2013 Broadway, sort of dark grey.

Thanks for any help

Hi Mike I found that the grey covers were very expensive for what they are and so I bought white ones at less than half the price off ebay, and they look quite well when fitted grey and white. Especially as the Broadway is grey and white.

Just double check the size but I'm nearly sure they're right.



Also check on Ebay for Grey thetford fridge vent covers they are dearer but are spot on match.


I bought the white because cheaper and I personally think they look well grey with white.

Thanks John, only started using eBay recently so I keep forgetting to check it.

Is Swift grey the same as those used on our vans? I'll have to look round the site.

Just found something for my essential things to carry, a tape measure!

Anything other than white seems to be much more expensive, but not sure why. I looked into getting a set of vents and covers in black for our new (to us) 2006 Trooper and the vents alone are £135 a pair! So I'm going to buy some plastic-specific primer and try respraying the existing white ones (which are rather mottled looking now). Anyone tried this and had any problems?

Confused. 

Do these covers go onto the existing ones or do we remove the existing ones and fit the new ones in place ?

My two grey vents on out Panel Van Conversion measure exactly 483 X 185.

In the Ebay link below they mention completely different sizes  IE 483 x135 Then 438 X  130..

From the Ebay advert 

Thetford SRC Vent Cover Small in Cream white RAL9001. (Please note Cream/White is the colour name you cannot choose from cream or white)
This colour is used by Bailey & maybe others
Fits Thetford fridge vents: 483x185mm
Overall Size: 438x130mm
Thetford Part Number: 62445557
Bailey Part Number: 1190017

This all sounds complicated and expensive. For anyone interested on my Broadway I unclip the existing cover, remove the mesh filter behind it, and replace it with a piece of stiff rubber cut to size then refit the existing cover.
I used an old rubber backed carpet tile but a piece of mud flat or rubber car mat or even stiff plastic would do the job.

I was going to remove the existing covers and cut and fit a piece of Celotex insulation board leaving a gap at the bottom for ventilation. But for the sake if 16 quid I would fit a pair of the proper covers. I just need to work out the right size..

They fit over the existing vent, for the cost of them I would buy them much easier to to take off and refit as needed also they allow the correct ventilation for the fridge to operate efficiently.

Like Backtrax, I have home made plastic sheet vent covers that fit behind the original vent covers. I copied the design from Thetford, they have cutouts top and bottom to allow some airflow, I never fit the top one now as there could be a lot of heat build up which affects the cooling of the fridge.
