18: Roof vent ?

I have a 2011 Coachmen Chaparral Lite 5er and am looking to replace the skylighgt over the shower with an opening vent. The issue is that the roof opening is 18 1/2 inches square and all the vents I can find are for a 14" aperture. Anyone found a solution ???

The only thing I can think of is reduce the size of the hole in the roof and ceiling. You would have add a layer of wood framing inside the existing framing for the exisiting hole to take it down to 14" x 14"; make the new framing flush with the roof and ceiling. The roof would have to have roof covering added to cover the new framing; 4" Eternabond could be used for that as long as there is close to a 2" overlap onto the existing roofing. The splice job on the ceiling could be covered with a trim ring of some kind.

That's kinda what I thought but I don't want to start patching / re sealing a new roof or doing the same on the ceiling over the shower. I have this aversion to putting additional potential leak sites into a pristine roof !. I'm gpoing to take a look at Marine hatched as the one on my boat is a close fit.
