High End Units and Glass Roofs

It's been years ago, 15 years in fact, but bad experiences tend to stick with you. I've been following the chatter regarding Thor buying at least 2 higher end competitors and it saddens me. We haven't owned our Excel for very long but, it's been long enough to know there are some things I will look for when purchasing our next unit - and she's already looking! One is a fiberglas roof. I'm sure some will disagree with me but if I'm going to invest $ in another RV it's going to have a glass roof. Is anyone building a 5er nowadays in a conventional floor plan that offers a glass roof? An internet search is proving difficult.

DRV has the fiberglass roof option on the Elite series. Other than that you have to go custom at New Horizons, Space Craft, Or Forks / Continental Coach.
