Thanks OC, just seems a bit strange why (if) they were fitted by Elddis they are so different.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.
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.Thanks OC, just seems a bit strange why (if) they were fitted by Elddis they are so different.
Interesting thoughts there Hutch................Have another pint.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.
I must be bored. Nothing new on TV.
Hi Kev just look at the Elddis crusader we use own they look the same if you not happy ask the dealer where you brought it just to make sure .
It is on the roof out of sight so not sure why it should bother anyone if the skylight does its job? LOL!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.
We have the same vent in our bathroom and think it is brilliant.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.
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 roofThe 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.
