HELP! My Rear Escape Hatch Cover Is Gone!

Post by Rickyoday »

I don't know where it went, but my rear escape hatch cover is gone!  It's been crazy windy here and the bus is parked in an open parking lot, so my guess is the cover was old and brittle and the wind tore it up.  I need to get a replacement cover ASAP...anyone have a source for new ones?  I'm going to Gorilla tape a contractors trash bag cut to size for a temporary repair.
  I was thinking that the hatches might be good locations for a pair of Fantastic Fans, has anyone installed fans in that space?  I have AC in the basement, so no plans for rooftop units.
  Thanks for any help!

I left out an important detail: 1982 Model 10 Silver Eagle.  I tried to post a picture, but it was in computer language.

Rick, I have a complete emergency hatch/mount.  It is yours for the cost of shipping.
