Wlcome to the group.

Unfortunately there were two different size panels used. Here are links to two ads that show that panel, is it the large one or the small one you need, what are the dimensions of yours and is it missing or just damaged?

Amerigo F16 Gonna try

to answer with a picture and approx measurements. This cover is missing. I can probably make one for a "get by" but would rather have one that is made for it.
Measures approx. 21 1/4 by 35 1/2

J,
That looks like the same refrigerator door opening as my '72.

Honestly the "factory made" one is pretty crude, it's just a sheet of thin aluminum (think aluminum siding thin) with louvers punched in it then attached to an aluminum frame. It has screening on the inside to keep the bugs out. There is a hinge on the top of the frame similar to the windows, other than that there is no hardware to hold it open and 2 sheet metal screws hold it closed at the bottom.

I think someone with any fabrication abilities could easily make one just as good if not nicer that the oem part.
Mine actually has a split running horizontally thru the louvers due to how thin the panel is.

J, just food for thought. There used to be a FG shell builder here in town. All the shells were blank moulds, any window openings needed were cut later. The cutout pieces were scrape to them. I picked up a few dozen for free and ended up using them for a number of FG projects. If you can find a maker close to you, you should be able to get a cutout piece large enough to make a nice door.

Scamp sells "cutouts" I believe. But the need here is for a ventilated cover for the back of a refrigerator compartment.


Now, if the OP went to a compressor refrigerator, that would be an excellent idea

Amerigo cover

Thanks for replies. Have some scrap alum. and other materials and may try to make a cover. Having the louvers done may be a slight problem. Will need to shop around, but here in Birmingham shouldn't be a problem. I didn't know they were fastened down with screws.
This camper will be a project to redo. It is useable as is but won't win any beauty contests.
We have a 17 ft Casita Liberty deluxe we use when we get a chance.
Thanks again for the info.

If you have any local old school hot rod or rat rod builders check with one of them.....they will likely have or know someone with a louver punch press.

The louvers in post # 4 look very close in size to some fridge vents currently available. Links to upper and lower Norcold vents:
