LOL I had the same unsavory discovery when I put the vent cover on my Scamp
. Yes, drill out the rivets (likely only four in the proper location, the rest stay in place).
I used rivets that turned out to be just a bit too long and if you run your hand on the ratfur on the inside roof you can feel them poke just a little. So I would call Casita
if I were you, and ask what size to use.
Can't recall if I had to remove any sealant but I did use new sealant under the brackets, in the holes with the rivets, and on top of the brackets.... 5 months and still dry, even with the vent open. Great mod!
