Looking out my bedroom window my mind ask's the question are these roof lights standard fit, expect the omnivent to be different colour but the other three are a miss match.
Any clues folks?

You need to get away from your Scafollding and get out more,
Note to myself, get out more than Kev and Mags.

I fitted something similar to your rear darkened one. The OEM one was clear plastic and comprised two sheets of plastic but they were not sealed so dirt entered and it had to be periodically disassembled for cleaning. A faff. So I replaced it with a Seitz one that was hinged at the front and far superior to the OEM.

Thanks OC, just seems a bit strange why (if) they were fitted by Elddis they are so different.

Next time I get the van home I will check mine, but from memory they all seemed the same apart from the fan unit in the kitchen.
I know what you mean about hospital appoinments, we are both clear for 3 months, fingers crossed.

Looking again Kev. Front one, lighter for more light in the lounge area, kitchen one, ok, then bedroom one darker for sleeping in, in the morning, then Darker for the toilet /shower.
Just thoughts.
I must be bored. Nothing new on TV.
And now I have burnt the mini Sausage rolls that were my late night Friday night, gift to myself.

I have a 2016 Coachman VIP 575/4 and the rooflights are different on that too as seen in the picture of that model. I don't why but I think it's fairly common practice by the manufacturers to do it, possibly for the reasons Hutch mentions, which makes sense. But I have to agree from an aesthetic point of view they do look a bit of a hotchpotch.

It is on the roof out of sight so not sure why it should bother anyone if the skylight does its job? LOL! :D

We have a Compass Camjno, all four roof lights are different colours, designs and different ways of being opened, just a mess. The look doesn't bother me but the loo light is a pig to open and close, a bar you have to pull down and slide to disengage a ratchet mechanism.

The ombivent was also really stiff to turn, until squirted with a load of silicon.

We have the same vent in our bathroom and think it is brilliant.

The rear toilet one might be slightly darker but not by much. I think I will have to polish the roof before winter outings so the snow falls off easily. Maybe down your way. And get a catch up.

Snow in Devon, dont get much of that down here. Would look forward to a catch up, but only if you have a clean polished roof :LOL:

Crikey, it looks terrible, but it is really fairly clean, maybe next week when we get home a good clean and polish is needed. And the cables for the rear camera need recovering.
Hi Hutch i would have agree it needs a good wash and polish
