Like that idea mate has anyone done it before and are you talking the whole length?

Im toying with car sunroof's instead mounted length ways (so they open to the side) this means they should fit in the roof and its a funky feature that is different mate.....and they can open....

Most sunroofs have substantial frames which need to be inserted to retain the glass, so I think it opens a whole other box of complexity.

If you want to go with an alternative to regular Airstream skylights (like Maxim, or Fan-tastic fan), I would look to genuine caravan windows like you mentioned in the first post. Seitz Heiki do a complete range.

That said, I can't see why replacing one sheet material with another, that has similar strength and flexibility for a similar weight, would not work - never seen it tried by anyone though!

well I like to be different and mate I'm just exploring it at the mo so let's see where it goes if not I'll have to have boring plastic caravan stuff!

If the roof can take an aircon box I'm sure a sunroof isn't a problem but we'll see!

Thanks for the advice mate!

Joseph Milgiore (JM2) has a sunroof from VW bug in his 20ft MH.....and the roof profile is the same.
