Replacing roof with plexiglass

Hello all,

I have a coachmen, spirit of America 2003. When i bought the RV i needed to fix the front wall and part of the roof due to water damage. I have finished re-building the wall and would like to know if i could use plexiglass on a portion of the roof. The rough opening for this will be 90 inches from wall to wall and 15 inches from back to front. I know i would have to get all the roof sealant, but i just want inputs on this crazy idea. Thanks

Plexiglass is not designed to withstand constant sun/UV proof.

There are some acrylic UV-resistant skylights with built-in shades used in home building that might work. But probably not cheaply.

You would probably want to consider UV stabilized Lexan. It is used in greenhouse applications so it should stand up in your usage.
