sky light replacement

What do I use and any suggestions? You notice the other vents are real close, I believe this may be why I have leaks.

Not sure if the installation details on a motorhome differ much from a trailer, but quite a few trailer owners - including me - have switched from the cheap and nasty skylight that Airstream originally installed for far more substantial polycarbonate/aluminum custom made units made by this company.

Maxim Skylights - Hurricane, Hail and Impact Resistant Skylights

My original skylights were badly deteriorated and leaking from a multitude of cracks where the securing screws go through the flanges.

The new units are a fantastic improvement - they also meet certain standards in Florida for hurricane / hail resistance.
