Another thing is that the reason for a vent in the bathroom is to remove the moisture from a shower or bath. I would move the vent over to give the room for the skylight and then have the vent somewhere in that bathroom area. If ya want another vent for the kitchen area put one there and it would help to draw a breeze into the home at night. Good luck, Dan

Dan,
There is no way I was going to coat the roof first.Just asking the question about the cut outs for a later date.

`Buddy, I have an idea how that roof is made! now hang with me a minute. The frame of the roof is visible so you would have to take the roof loose and then you can get to the screws holding the frame to the walls.The frame has a angle iron attached to that roof frame and I'd bet my last dollar that has an angle iron to wall mount! I hope you don't have to pull the roof but that is most likely how it was made. On some of there other models they had the angle iron to the inside wall. My daughters was that way. It was a Winne too! Hope this answers the 49 million dollar question, Dan

Dan-you could be right.Guess all I need to do is call the Winnebago dealer listed here and ask them.Notfor nothing,I'll find out from them and let you know.Your right-I won't be stripping off the roof.

And so why did it just not occur to any of us to contact Winnebago to find out how the roof and trim plate was connected? I think we've been staring at computer screens too long...

Well before I didn't have photo's because of no camera and now-well I never said I was all that smart.LOL!!!.

The skylight company I was going to use has changed it's story where before they told me the curbside was included and now they are saying I have to build my own curbside and flashing.I don't mind spending alittle more for a skylight built for a RV.Any suggestions??.
