Help finding replacement bathroom vent cover?

Our 1986 UHaul VT has a pop-up vent in the privacy room/bathroom that can be raised or lowered by pulling or pushing on the handle inside the trailer (on the ceiling). Last night, a heavy wind blew a branch on the trailer and the outside black vent cover broke in pieces. In looking for a replacement, I can't find any vent assemblies like the one we have that can be opened or closed manually from the inside. Everything seems to either be a fixed vent with cover or some type of fan driven unit. Does anyone have a clue what I should be looking for or where I might find one? (If the rest of the unit isn't damaged, just a new cover would be fine.)

Thanks! (I'll post a picture when I have a chance.)

Dimensions of the lid would be helpful- also its means of attachment to the hardware.

Replacement of the plastic-only on some such lids is possible since it can be separated from the working parts of the whole by way of just sliding out of a track, in some cases after removal of some screws or rivets.

It may be a 9X9 vent which is the size in my bath pop up. I have searched and searched for a cover replacement or a cover to leave open in the rain, nada.

It sounds like it is round like a Casita?

Thanks everyone. Due to my work schedule, I haven't yet seen the damage in daylight, but I will check about size when possible. The black Ventline cover looks like it, though.

I just had the chance to check the broken pieces of my cover and it is stamped with the brand VentLine, just like was suggested above. I ordered one and hope it fits.
