I have a 2004 28 ft. Classic trailer and have noticed leaks around the areas of the two skylights. I pulled off the skylights and cleaned and replaced them with fender washers and new sealer. However they will have to be replaced. Are there any lexan or polycarbonate skylights out there that will fit our trailers --if so who makes them? The originals just do not hold up.

I replace the skylights on my 2004 Classic this spring with a kit from Out of Doors Mart. These are the same skylights the factory uses with a little different installation method. Out of Doors Mart includes a set of aluminum moulding to hold the edges of the skylight down. The installation was fairly simple and seems to be working great. If you check out their web site under the "Airstream Projects" Tab you will see a step by step installation of their kit. I did look at some of the thicker skylights and think they would work good also but felt they defeated the purpose of the skylight by blocking to much light. What ever route you go be sure to drill the holes in the skylight a litter bigger than the mounting screws to allow some movement without putting strain on the plastic skylignt.
Best of luck with your project
