01 Sierra FR, escape hatch replacement

Hey everyone, I just bought a used 01 Sierra forest river and found that the rear vent lid crumbled and blew off on the drive home. After searching the internet and calling corporate I cannot locate a replacement 22x22 vent lid or escape hatch assembly. FR corporate office states they no longer make this part and to find my own way of sealing the hole...

I need help guys , anyone have a diy fix for this??? Thank you

How about a standard skylight?

Something like this. Fixed Curb Mount Skylight

You could build a curb out of plastic or aluminum angle and eternabond it to the roof and then mount this over it and eternabond around it for a double seal.

Thanks for the reply, yes so my thoughts were to place sheet metal over the base and seal it or to even remove it and place a sky light. I am finding that a skylight the size I need is almost double the price of the original escape hatch that isn’t available anymore. Has anyone experienced this issue and made a diy fix themselves? Thanks
