Looks great. Thanks for the ideas.

Now all you need to do is put a platform on the roof so you can have a lawn chair on the roof!!

Cool!!

It is a Bowmar hatch from West Marine. Think its the Niby line....a bit over 20"x20". Cost $400, plus 60+ for a screen assembly (I'm trying to devise my own screen but the radius corners make that a bit of a custom job.

Hi Del. For some reason or other I couldn't find your email. No worries. Next time you're at the library, maybe you could send it again.

Anyway, still wanting to create my "home" like I said before. I will definitely be gathering more info from people like you, who have been there, done that! Thanks so much!! Take care.

Ciao! ~Cari~

So it been while now with the skylight to hatch job complete and wanted to see how it holding up.??

Do you open the hatch for airflow, to get on or at stuff on roof easier, and do you get more heat from the hatch vs a nice maxum triple glazed skylight replacement product.

I do like the idea of having a nice way, and with the ladder set up you have, for getting on the roof with out having to set up ladder on side and step off and on.

I don't recall seeing this thread when it first came out in 2012. I just read the entire thread. The marine hatch is a really neat idea to replace the almost useless skylight with something more useful and durable. The marine grade hatch would be much better quality than an RV skylight.

This is something that I would like to do when Lucy's skylight needs replacement. This is such a neat idea that Airstream should offer this as an option.

I was thinking the same thing. Just wondering how it was holding up and if they are better or worse with the heat issue.

The glass or whatever the material seems a bit dark which is what i have seen on most boats and defeats the sky light portion of the program.

but I do like the being able to open the "hatch" with screen or with out.
