Question Help on an older RV bath fan

We finally was able to buy a 1991 Holiday Rambler. However the whole bathroom fan is junk, motor, frame and blades. I thought it would be a simple replacement. NO of course not. It has an old "C" radius that I can't find anywhere. The measurements are the same as the new ones, 14x14. The new fans however have a smaller radius or curvature on the mounting portion. The screen will not fit either. Can someone point me to where I can find one?

I don't understand your description of a "C radius." You can spend more than $300 for a fan that is thermostatically controlled, reversible, closes when it senses rain, etc. Or you can spend a lot less for a simple fan to draw air out of the bathroom.

Thank you for your instant responce.

Here is a scan of the old screen on a 'c' radius motor home bath fan. After much adieu the term 'c' radius is the closest I found to describe the old fan.I will try an attachment and hope you can open the jpg. You will notice the corner radius is larger than the new ones.

X-2, you can do away with the whole fan assembly, throw it in the trash!
Replace the noisy, does not work that well, fan, with a "fantastic fan" The manual reversible one is under 100 dls. and you will love it! Fits right in the old 14X14 opening, and you already have power right there! Very easy to install! I loved them so much, I put one in my semi, and it was the best 79 dls. I ever spent! Rail!
