Shower Skylight

Hi, I have a 2000 Tradewinds and recently the awning decided it wanted to be on the roof after a wind storm. It broke most everything on the roof including the cheesy skylight over the shower. This skylight has a lip over flange that sits on a curb, it does not lay flat on the roof which seems like it is more typical now. The outside dimension of the curb is roughly 18" x 26". Can anyone direct me to a used skylight source or better yet, where I might be able to find a new one?

I have seen where others have suggested Home Depot or Lowes.

We put on a new roof and replaced all the plastic covers that was up there as they were all sunburned.
We took 1/4 lexon and used it as a new skylite and I would recommend this as I believe it is stronger and gives better light and in the long run is stronger than the cheap one the are made as replacements.

You might also want to pick up and install an awning lock.

Sorry about the double post & one does NOT look for replacement skylights at salvage yards. Who wants to replace a broken skylight with a used brittle skylight?
Stick with the link above.

The OP, especially when that's what you specifically asked for in your post.

The link provided above by Sidewinder 4 is where you will find new Skylights as well as custom ordering a skylight.

I replaced the entire roof on my 37 foor Pace Arrow. I replaced all the plastic skylights and roof vents. Ended up ordering a replacement sky light. Just suggesting NOT to go used. Not a smart idea.

Thanks
