Skylight replacement options 2001 winnebago Journey 36DL

I have a 2001 winnebago journey dl with a neo angle skylight over the shower. Unfortunately I was just inspecting the roof and found 5 cracks in it and I'm wondering if anyone's knows where to get a skylight cheaper than winnebago themselves.
Looks like my models pn is 122215-01-02A
the inner skylight sticks above the roof so that seems like it might limit my options.
the picture below is what I found after taking off the inner skylight (not great ik)

I recently replaced the skylight on my '04 Meridian with a dome (not exactly same size, but thicker material) from EZ Tops, Inc, 877-433-4568. It took them a few days to make based on my dimensions, but it fits well and $$ cheaper than the Winnebago product. https://www.eztopsworldwide.com

It sounds like PapaRed's recommendation is a good one. On the other hand, if you can find a generic skylight that will accommodate your inner skylight, the shape of the outer skylight doesn't matter as long as it covers the cutout. By going a little bigger, accommodating the inner skylight might be easier.

In the meantime, I suggest applying some Gorilla Tape to the cracks to avoid water damage.

EZTops....they made a custom outer skylight for my 2001Winnie adventurer, 32v.
Made from lexan and better quality than original.
Can get my order info if interested.
Not the same size as yours.

I talked to them and they said I would have to get a way larger footprint one because my inner liner sticks out above the roof.

Farco,
Here is the best info that I can give to you.
This is the best price that I could find at the time I ordered it.
The new one was perfect and better than the original.

OK, Here is what is on my Invoice from EZTops:

Quantity: 1
Unit: White

Description: Lexan Skylight 19" x 34" x 5" high plus OD 22" x 37"

$134.95 + $42.95 ship = $177.90 (Code E, Tax Exempt)

Maybe you could reference my Invoice No.: 37046,
Date Sept 08, 2020

Not sure what this means.
If a new one is made which is the same dimensions as the original one (eg. height), I would expect the new one to fit.

I don't know about this specific skylight, but I do know from similar replacement skylights threads, it's not the height as it is the slope of the height profile. The originals have a steeper rise that clears the inner skylight while the generic replacements have a flatter slope so they hit the inner skylight. Going to a larger skylight mitigates this issue. You can tell from the photo of E-ROD3's skylight that the rise to full height is almost vertical.

YES....
The shape from base to max height is very important.
I recall having this discussion with EZTops when we were putting together the full dimensions for a new one.
Ensure that the new Outer Skylight is able to comfortably clear the Inner Skylight.

Measure all dimensions of the old one............................

Thanks Bob C.
