Hi I didn't step through mine but the fifth wheel I had I was working on the put my elbow through it. As a temporary repair I used enteribond tape and covered the skylight with it took most of a roll but lasted till I could get one.
If you can get a original one you will be better off, The after market one I got didn't fit very well had to jerry rig it.

I hope you are fixed...

I don't know if this will help, but 10 yrs ago, I purchased a used Lazy Daz Class C from someone in Denver. All went well on our inspection of the coach. However, after driving for about 6 - 8 hours on an Interstate heading back to Maryland, we heard a "POP" and a big rush of wind... After pulling over and investigating, I realized the shower skylight had become very brittle, because of the Western sunlight...

In any event, I used an industrial strength plastic bag and various combinations of bungee cords and duck tape to cover the large hole in our roof...

I stopped at the first RV dealership I could locate and - NO SURPRISE - the size cover I needed was only available from the Manufacturer...
ODD bal size...

Anyway, to make a long story shorter - the tech mentioned that he would just go to Home Depot and purchase a piece of plexiglass, and some window insulation tape and some aluminum angle iron and cover the hole...

The perfect fix - I wheeled into Home Depot, just down the street, purchased all the needed supplies - including the cheapest corded drill, and proceeded to repair my roof right there in their parking lot.

When I was done, I returned all the things I didn't use/need and went on my merry way... The Depot asked me why I was returning the drill, I just told them I didn't need it, no questions asked...

Worked perfect until I could get a replacement...

P.S. - I forgot to mention - HD will cut the plexiglass to any size you ask them to -made the fix that much easier...

I read an article on how this can help in this type of emergency. They are inexpensive and would take up very little room. You would also need scissors and duct take for the install.

WOW KRAFTY, that's a lot of snow.... I would have to make a call to MH factory to see what the load for the roof is. We aint going up on the roof to clear it. 3 snows ago my son came over with his buddy (while we were at work) and were clearing the snow my roof off till he went thru our skylight. No one hurt, thank GOD but, wrong time of season to be repairing a skylight.
