There are several online dealers who make and supply all sorts of sizes of skylights. Go up on the roof and take some measurements. Go to their site and pick a style you want input the dimensions and get a price.

22x22 is standard for square skylights over the shower.

Here are 2 sources for skylights

You should use Surebond to seal skylight (not Dicor)

You can order from Newmar. Supposedly they keep stock of parts for 20 years.

I removed our shower skylight and installed a Fantastic Fan. It has been one of our top 10 improvements and it does a good job of getting rid of the moisture during and after a shower. My skylight opening was 15X15. You should be able to measure the inside of the skylight opening and round up an add a extra inch+ to get the rough opening size. The fan was hooked into the nearby shower light 12V power.
Note: We also have a exhaust fan in the bathroom which we rarely use, the shower FF is more efficient at removing shower moisture and still lets in light.

thanks, i already have a fantastic fan in the bathroom. when i bought the rv on my first trip, the skylight cracked and i was taking water in. i patched it with silicone and flexseal, and its held for almost a year, but better safe then sorry.

Why do you say not to use Dicor? All three of my RV's (including our Newmar) have Dicor sealant on the external roof skylights. But there's also a layer of Butyl tape under the lip of the skylights. Then Dicor self-leveling sealant on the outside sealing the screws and all edges.

That's the way I did ours several years ago. No leaks yet. I'm wondering why not also.

A new plastic skylight seemed pretty flimsy to me for several hundred dollars, so I built one for the Flair using fiberglass for about $50.00 worth of materials. I'm thinking it will last a lot longer than a plastic replacement would have.

I'm currently going around the one on the Dynasty digging out the old sealant (looks like silicone) and resealing with Dicor.

I don't know if Dicor is the correct sealant to use there, but I've been using it a long time and it works.

For just about everything I replace on the roof I use a strip or two of vinyl tape along the part that goes against the MH, replace the screws with new stainless ones, and go around the edges and over the screws with Dicor. The same for sides, but without the Dicor (usually).

if you go to the surebond website and watch the video you will see that its specifically made to fill holes in the roof and allow you to drill new ones. its also permanent and will not degrade like dicor. i would still apply dicor later but the surebond is a foundation not a stop gap

Use a urethane caulk between the roof and the skylight (and in each screw hole) then some Dicor self-leveling around the edge of the skylight and on top of the screws, then 4" Eternabond over the skylight borders (and screws) and don't worry about it for a long time.
