Fantastic Fan Bezels

The removable bezel/shroud around my fantastic fans have become yellow and dull looking. The fan control face has as well, but not to the same extent. I could replace the bezels, but I was thinking of a more permanent and better looking fix. I would love to apply something that resembles wood grain.

Any suggestions?

Craig

You could wrap it in vinyl.

Fantastic Fan Louver

I saw this an RV show but I needed 3 but was reluctant to spend $400. So, I took a few pictures and was able to duplicate them in my home wood shop! They are hinged and can be opened to change the fan speed or cleaning the screen. They really added to the elegance of the coach. Later I've seen them factory installed on high end coaches.

Definitely an option, but I'm not sure how well I could wrap the corners with creating wrinkles.

Those are nice, but I want something to cover the trim bezel itself, not just the fan opening. Thanks anyway.

How about just staining them?

Thanks guys. I may try the wood stain idea first, it looks pretty simple and straightforward.

Thanks for the ideas!
