Awning toppers on our 2014 310 bhds

Anyone else add the awning toppers to their 310 bhds only to realize after that our nice skylight above the kitchen table is now a black void of darkness? Any idea if they make a clear / translucent awning topper fabric?

Oops.

And I have never seen what you are looking for.

I have the same unit and I also placed the slide topper on and covered up my sun roof. We still get some light thru because our cover is white. I think the protection you get from the slide topper is much more important than the sun roof.

I think you meant slide topper. Yes, a slide topper will cover the dining table skylight. To the best of my knowledge they do not make a slide topper with a piece of clear plastic that would allow you to see thru. This may be one reason Coachman does not offer slide toppers factory.

Our initial first weekend out, we did not have the slide toppers installed (back ordered). My wife didn't like all the water that dripped inside the unit when we put the slides in. Definitely prefer having them installed.

I saw one on a 292bhds where the owner had someone put a clear plastic section over the skylight. Had it professionally done and didn't leak. We will just leave ours covered.

Can someone explain why these would create condensation or leaks, I also have one over my table in 310BHSDLE and every morning it seems to drip, however we do have the slider topper.

It must have been from humidity, everything seems sealed and no dripping after good rain, have vortex running and seems to be drawing out the air nicely.

I would think you could take it to a boat shop and have them cut out a square over the skylight and replace it with vinyl boat window material, like the kind you see on soft top Jeeps.

Personally I prefer being able to make the interior as dark as possible for sleeping in late =).
