Dimensions of Skylight over Shower (ISATA3 24FW)

Does anybody know the dimensions of the skylight over the shower in a 2021 ISATA3 24FW? We're looking to do some cold weather camping and would like to put some insulation in there. If you have recommendations of what product your using, that would be even better.

BTW, I'm not lazy (ok, yes I am, but not in this case!) Our rig is at MB getting a recall done and it won't be back in time to measure before we go on our next trip.

I appreciate any help.

Paul

If you are time constrained I think I would buy a rolll of reflex take it along and at the first stop cut it to fit you could use several layers. JMHO

Most skylights have an outer portion and an easily removable inner portion. I have friends who remove the inner part, cut some blanket insulation to fit, and insert the insulation between the inner and outer skylight pieces. Then they don't have to worry about affixing it so it doesn't fall out or removing it when showering (condensation).
Personally, due to the double skylight, I don't feel I lose enough heat through it to worry about.

I removed the inner part of mine and insulated not to keep warmth in but to keep the heat and sunlight out.

Thank you both for the suggestions. However I'm really looking for something I can stuff in when necessary and remove easily.

I have this installed in both of my MaxxFan Vents and it works great.

I have to think there's something similar that's sized for the shower skylight. Hence, the need for dimensions.

I don't know your specifics but it is most likely the 14x22 skylight. It seems like the common size. I have one over my shower as well as over the main living area. I bought 2 of these to stuff into mine. They are a real tight fit and don't fit perfectly but once stuffed in, they seem to be pretty secure.

Skylight size

Mine broke on my 2018 and I replaced it with a Rec Pro 14x22, it was an exact fit

You might have some interest in the following thread I started a few months back.

https://www.forestriverforums.com/forums/f240/isata-3-improving-ac-efficiency-237260-2.html

Insulation solution originally intended for summer but works equally well in winter. Specifically posts # 1, 18, 22, 23, 40 and 43. As mentioned in thread above, I was unable to stuff an insulated pillow (like the ones for the vents) in the shower skylight due to curved sides.

Hope you find this helpful.

A big Thanks to everyone for all your help. I've ordered the one from Amazon that Mikey recommended and it will be here for our trip to Cloudland Canyon next week!

A little tip, when it comes, it's compressed and sealed in plastic. Take it out right away and set it on the side overnight. The next day it will be fully expanded...
