Roof Hatch Replacement?

I have a 21x21 escape hatch in the roof of my Parkliner. I'd love to replace it, or even better, replace the cover with a transparent one. I'm sitting here in the rain, and with tinted windows, it's pretty darn dark in here, even with the door open. Ideas? Other options? Thanks.

PS Yes, I can move outside, but typing this at the inside table is easier and drier

Call Park liner. If they don't have what you want ask for manufacturer and their phone number. I strongly suggest doing this over the phone.

Is that an escape hatch, or a vent fan?
Our 2106 Parkliner (October build) has a MaxxFan up there
The escape hatch is the rear window.

The MaxxFan is the best, it can be open when it's raining.

The dimensions you give, do seem to be right for an escape hatch.
It should be possible to replace the cover with a translucent white one.

It’s a ceiling escape hatch. Have been searching for a translucent cover. Any ideas?

You might be better off looking at a marine hatch. There you can get the clear top and even one with inside shades. Being marine you pay a heafty price over RV.

If it is an escape hatch, it is likely made by Heng’s Industries. Check their website, or better yet, call them and ask what is available if you can verify your hatch is their product. However, be aware that the lids are sized by the size hole that the assembly fits in, not the outer dimensions of the lid itself. If the lid measures 21” X 21”, it is probably described on the website as a lid for an 18” X 18” escape hatch.
