For the inner part, you may be able to pick up a sheet of 1/8" Plexiglas and use that.

The good news is that any snow falling into the coach will hit the shower pan and won't damage anything.

If you aren't sure about just having a tarp over the hole, place a plastic garbage can lid over the hole, then tarp over that. Purely safe.

I had to have mine costume made took abort 3 weeks to get it. ill find the co latter tonight there some ware in Maine.
If I were you I'd pick up a piece of plastic at Lowes or Home depot and put that on till spring, It could be a very tricky job putting it on in cold weather as the acrylic becomes more brittle in cold. The replacement is not cheap.

Just be glad that you didn't slice your leg up when your foot went through. That stuff is hard and pretty sharp. Been watching the weather reports of your snow fall. Pretty freaky. Hope a warm up comes to all of us soon.

Thanks to everyone who responded.

I'm going to call Colton on Monday, that's where we bought the coach.

Good luck. I have to do the same, shovel off the mh. I will be careful and try not to step on anything that will break.

We live in Lancaster.. Yes..and we got nailed! We were thinking of going on top to clear snow and may rethink about that activity. With my luck, I would be the one to step thru the skylight! Click image for larger version

Yes be careful if you go up there!

The rain over the next few days could make that snow triple in weight.

For those that live in the areas of heavy snow consider using a roof rake. Be careful not to damage your roof.
