Hi ,
I put mine in the front hole where the original vent was as it was leaking as you indicated and I have a window in the back I open so it pulls air from back to front and helps a lot. Definitely one of my better decisions

I put mine in the front. just behind the hatch. Theory was the heat off the engine (FE) would go up and out and cool air in from the door or window. It works well, two would be better but I am waiting on a rooftop ac for the back half of the bus. I also have an O2 cool USB fan directly on me when working on the back half (not done converting). The air isn't moving back there as much.

Thanks for all the great comments. My plan is to to this for now, then adjust with more air flow if needed

I use my roof hatches a LOT more than I thought I would especially after I put a Jeggs rooftop cargo carrier, but also to repair solar or install a telescopic ladder to easily get up to your deck.
What did you try to replace them with?

The comment about easy access to the roof is really making me reconsider. I love the sunroof idea but worry it being in accessible

A ladder will give you access to the roof. Ventilation is priceless.
