Adding a window ac unit in closet (vent)

Hello! I am adding a wall ac unit to the closer of my Scamp. I was wondering what vent I should use on the exterior of the camper. If any of you did a similar renovation, I would love to hear your suggestions. Thank you!

I used this one:

"Duraflo 620808COMB Combination Gable Vent, 8-Inch X 8-Inch" from Amazon.

It actually comes as two pieces, an inside and outside. I used the outside one for the upper side vent and the inside one for the underside. It's flexible so it conforms to the trailer's shape and doesn't need painting. And it looks pretty nifty, too.

I don't know what you might use for the main front vent except for the one Casita uses for it's 16'.

From the factory my Scamp had a couple of soffit vents nested together. A 8X16 and a 4X16 put together to make a 12X16vent. They had lost a slat or three since 1988 and needed replacement. I had a box of 8X16 already so carefully cut a couple of them and nested them together to make my own. Cost-almost free except for an hour or so time.
