on your purchase and welcome to fiberglassRV
We have 3 truck bed spreaders
, I put them floor to ceiling when working on roof to prevent sag and leaks
later. Purchased spreaders I use for roof support from princess auto during a sale.
the Stanley closed end pop rivets can pull in brackets connecting walls and roof to cabinets holding up our roofs and leak later due to the thin wall design.
The design saves us a lot of weight
but has to be considered when working on the bolers.
I changed out our two original power vents recently with new ones; the new vents have smaller coverage on inside of roof and had to trim the inner piece with Dremel to go flush due to the roof thickness.
You may need the old flashing to use with the new vents to get the width, cut the center out and place over new flashing and push both up to ceiling after trimming it to thickness needed or some aluminum work to cover inner screws.
hope this helps
