    Hi all
    We have a 2004 hobby 750 and i need to change the two lift up roof lights, just the plastic bit that is secured by four screws from above and the plastic grid that is beneath this.
    I have tried our local caravan dealers but they have all said that because it is a hobby I will probably have to go direct to them.
    Has anyone any experience of changing these and know where best to get them from?
    Thanks

    Reviving this as looking for roof light covers for our 1999 Hobby 750. Doesn't seem to be any that I can find at the correct size . I suspect they were done specially for Hobby but hopefully someone can tell me no !!

    Marcle Leisure have tried and failed :-(

    Size of aperture is 50cm x 50cm

    Yes its the same size, only difference is that it has a clear (crystal) top instead of opaque (white) crystal are more expensive

    Not a bad price either, UK price for that one is £120 ! Go for it

    dont forget to buy new sealant and quality stainless steel screws before you start the job. I got a phone call from a friend one sunday afternoon. he had removed his old skylight and gone to fit the new one before realising he had no sealant. Thankfully I as usual had some in the shed and the necessary screws as the originals were going rusty

    The Roof Vent is easily fitted using a sandwich method with screws tightened from inside the vehicle, pulling the inner frame to the outer one and sandwiching the caravan or vehicle between the two parts.

    It can also be secured to the roof externally by screwing the outer frame down with stainless screws.

    This roof vent does not come with any screws. You should require 3.5mm wood screws of various lengths depending on what thickness of roof you are fitting it to.
