Maxim skylights

Installed our 2 Maxim skylights today replacing the 8 year old factory ones. Thanks for all the information posted on the forum as they went in without a hitch. We choose the clear/clear on both and they look beautiful. Can't understand why Airstream doesn't put original ones in like this?

Going on my list of things to do. Not happy with the faded/fogged appearance of ours.

I ordered mine last week. The old one is out, the caulking gone and everything clean. According to David in Dallas, that is the hardest part of the upgrade. I ordered the Bronze, clear, clear. Should be here in two weeks, Looking forward to completing the project.

I got mine about a month and still haven't had time to tackle the project.

Maxim skylights

It's not really that hard a job and you'll be so happy with the new skylight. Just try to do it on a cloudy day as it gets really hot up there. Be sure to have pads of some kind to kneel on, and clean off the old adhesive, there probably isn't much there anyway. A drill for making the new holes and an electric screw gun work great. Check out the video that was made by one of the Airforum members as it's a big help. I was the helping hand on the ladder for my husband who was up on the roof. Took about 3-4 hours to install both. Good luck and happy viewing of the sky.

Another thumbs up for Maxim. High quality, fair price, and excellent customer service. You don't get all three very often.

Cheers,
John

I really want to do this as soon as possible but it means less time on the boat. Its cooling down here now so hopefully I will have pics to post up in the next week or two.

I enjoyed installing my first pair so much that I now get to install my warranty replacements! They arrived last week.

Maxim skylights

Have 2015 FC 28 and already have leaks in OEM sky lights. Live in Atlanta area with no Airstream dealers. Anyone know where in GA, NC or TN I can have these installed? I am not a DIY guy with roof issues.
