When we've ordered our rigs in the past, we ordered them without the skylights. I don't like them at all due to the heat. This time I was a little impatient, bought one off the lot with the skylight, and did what you see in the pictures. I'll get rid of the outer dome later, just coated it with liquid roof for now.

I like that! I would have to put a Star in mine but to each their own

Totally understand the star. We're practically on the east Texas / west Louisiana border, so I see both shown proud for sure. Guess I'll have to remove that when we sell or I'll limit my market.

I was just at my selling dealer and saw a26RKS with a pleated shade on the kitchen skylight. It had a United Shade sticker on it. I will take measurements to see if I can order a pleated shade for my trailer. It's 104 here today and the heat that comes through the uncovered skylight is insane.

Exactly why I hate them. If I wanted light inside, I'd turn the light on. If I want heat and sunlight, I'll go outside. They make no sense to me, but that's just me.

It's not just you.

Somewhere I read you have to be careful because of the heat that can build up between the shade and the skylight, but I am looking for something also, as you can just feel the heat under the skylight. The skylight over the kitchen in our 28.5 RKDS is 30"x17 3/4", the one over the table 13 3/4"x22 1/4". So they are pretty good size...
