Skylight Leak

Just picked up a 2003 Classic 34. It was a real mess inside but not too bad outside. It has a musty smell. Found the leak this weekend. The hallway skylight is leaking. I checked and the roof has a plastic cover screwed to the frame of the lite and sealant blobbed on the screw heads. There are a lot of small cracks in the plastic cover. Need a suggestion for a source for the plastic screw on cover so I don't have to replace the skylight itself. I appreciate all the past support. This "new" trailer business is sometimes a mess.

Thanks, DH

Trade up to Maxim skylights. Use the search function.

I just replaced both of the plastic skylight covers on our '08. They age in the sun, and then start cracking. You are lucky you found it setting still, rather than have it depart on the road. I got ours at Out Of Doors Mart, but should be available thru any Airstream dealer. I searched on line for a non-Airstream part, but could not find the same size. Good luck with your replacement.

I am about to replace both skylights on my 97 34' with the Maxim skylights that dznf0g mentioned. After the research I've done, they seem to be the best you can get, although they may be more expensive they are rated to withstand hurricane's force winds. Just my 2 cents worth.

We switched to Maxims 2years ago- there is NO comparison in Quality. - don't figure we will have to replace them in our lifetime, but if we did, I wouldn't hesitate getting Maxims again! You can choose the amount of light you want to let in as a bonus-- we went bronze/bronze/clear in the hall by the bedroom and bronze /clear/clear in the dining/living area.
