Roof Vents and Emergency Exit Windows

Hey everyone,

I have some stuff up for grabs if anyone is interested. First off, some roof vents I am not using:









They have screens that you can pop out, as well as provisions for easily mounting a fan to them. Spin the knob and they pop up, spin it the other way and they close tight. Not the heaviest-duty plastic in the world, but stay out of baseball-sized hail storms and you should be ok. I paid 40 or 45 each for these, asking 25 each or 80 for the lot. I have 4 available, new in box. I can ship if needed.

Also, I took out 6 windows on my bus and replaced the emergency exits pop-out ones with the regular ones. So I now have 6 pop-out (top hinge) emergency exit windows if anyone wants them. Free to a good home with pickup or pay shipping.



Figured I'd post these here before I threw the vents on eBay and the windows in the trash.

Thanks -JB

Forgot to mention, the windows are 27.5" x ~26", will fit in any Thomas bus I believe. I will get back with more precise dimensions.

Re: Roof Vents and Emergency Exit Windows

If I were closer to Maryland I'd grab those windows. I want all my windows to be emergency windows. It's nice to be able to fully open the windows on a summer's day.

Oh, sure.. Why the heck not
I'll be doing a trip down to Lansing, Michigan for Easter. That'll be the closest to Maryland I'll be within the next year. What would the cost be to ship to there? Zip code 48906. I'm actually in Ontario, Canada, but from experience I'm immediately going to assume that the border crossing will add an additional cost I won't care to pay.

Re: Roof Vents and Emergency Exit Windows

It would be at least $150 to ship it to mi. Not worth it in my opinion what do you think?

Yowsers! Nah, not worth it. Thanks for checking, though. I'll stick to my original plan of looking for Windows from buses rottingin backyards. LUckily the aluminum frames have a long life expectancy.

Re: Roof Vents and Emergency Exit Windows

Question... will those roof vents fill the same space as an emergency exit on the roof? Gotta measure ours!
