My 2015 Jayflight 23MB has the skylight in the location you are wanting to add one.
I wouldnt think it would be much of problem to order one from Jayco.

Another thing to consider, once you decide where is how will you power the fan. It may or may not be prewired for 12 vdc. If there is a source nearby that can be tapped you are good to go!

We have the Eagle 2013 which also is very dark in the kitchen. What we did was add plexiglass to the screen door so that we can leave it open whether it is cold or hot. Got the idea here on the forum.

No need for 12VDC as the skylight just needs sunshine to do its job.

We leave the door open all day, but once the sun is above the TT, it is dark inside. Having the skylight will/should eliminate the need for interior lights being on in the middle of the day, even thought we use LED's. Less power drain while dry camping...

Don, I looked at your unit online and I can see what you mean about the darkness. I feel ours is dark in areas, like the slideout closet and the bedroom can be dark on cloudy days because we have a 2nd a/c unit where the vent would go. I am not sure why the went so dark with all the cabinetry. We just leave the bathroom door open to the bedroom to get some natural light in ours.

Anxious to see the results of your mod.
