I have this fun hole in the back of my bus

I bought a hopelink shuttle bus from my county metro department. It had lots of electronic signage to show that it was a hopelink bus... including one out the back. Pretty much just a hole out the back of the bus thats 9x21.5"


Try to find a fan that would fit in that space. Maybe 2 fans?
--- I would have to mount them in sheet metal, then mount the metal over the existing hole with sikaflex and rivets.

Cut the hole larger to accommodate a larger fan and mount in a similar way

Cover it up

Add a weirdly located small window. Possibly with a little shelf?

For context, this is in the back of the bus where the "bedroom" is. The hole is off center, to the left, up top. There is a main back window.

Make it a skylight. Make the hole as large as you like, skin it with tinted Lexan, cut the fan/vent into it.

A nice vent would work well. Could just leave it closed off
