can use advice on vent

Have 16 Casita, older model it does not have a bathroom vent. I would like to vent the room not just the plumbing. Have thought about the vents that are for the pipes as a room vent, even the one with the solar fan. I notice the newer models have a vent, or is that another pipe vent?
Thanks for any helpful advice.

I installed solar powered vents on the toilet vent and another one on the refrigerator vent (To help it move the hot air out of the back of the Fridge)

This is what Scamp is using now for ventilating the bathrooms (not the plumbing).
I have one.. its OK but you have to cut a pretty big hole in your roof (6.25 inches) Mine had a gap in the sealant when it was put in, so it leaked at first.

Lots of rental places have really big hole saws you can rent if needed; just need a half inch drill to use them (of course you could rent that too.) Otherwise, a Roto-Zip tool works well; just go slow.

A Hole Saw of the correct size will give you the perfect round hole.

I can cut a hole most any size, I was looking at the wall and I looks like a double wall.
Do the vents have some kind of finishwork for the inside? By the way thanks for the replys

Charlie , that sounds good except I don't have power near but I guess that may not be to hard to fix. Do you know if that vent has minimum roof thickness?

Nope, but it looks like the standard Casita vent. If you call Casita and ask for Victor, he'd sell you one for probably not much more. You can snag the power/ground wires from the ceiling above the bathroom door, they're tucked in behind the carpet.
