Vent Covers

I plan on putting on three vent covers but need some help on the colours. I have a newer model Cougar in the beige colour. The AC is black so I think I want black over the bedroom to help darken the room. The bathroom and living area I would like some light so I am thinking smoke. Will this be noticeable from outside and look strange?

I doubt it will be noticeable especially since the coach is tan (the front vent will blend in) and the other roof hardware is black (the rear vent will blend in also). How many roof vents can you remember on other coaches? Not many I'd bet unless you've been looking since you're in the market.

(Sorry off topic but the OP mentioned a black AC), It looked very nice but I saw an RV with a black rooftop air conditioner over the weekend. Why would a manufacture do that? (Black attracts heat)

"A black object absorbs all wavelengths of light and converts them into heat, so the object gets warm. A white object reflects all wavelengths of light, so the light is not converted into heat and the temperature of the object does not increase noticeably."

Our 5er had a black shroud on the a/c. It's white after I used a can of white rattle can Krylon for plastics. It had smoke colored vent covers - they are now translucent white. The new second a/c was purchased with a white shroud. Unfortunately the slide ends are black and I have to say that on a 90 degree day, too hot to touch. They may get painted for next year as I ran out of good weather time before camping season this year. What I'm saying is that black absorbs heat regardless of what the RV manufacturers want you to believe. If you need to block light, some felt from the local hobby (Michaels, Hobby Lobby or JoAnne shop locally) and some Velcro spots work well

Should look fine. But, you can take a picture of the side of your RV and change the color of objects with nearly any drawing program on a computer. That will give you some idea of what it might look like.
