Golf ball hail is hard on plastic skylights
 
After replacing the plastic skylights in the camp trailer just last year, a hail storm destroyed all 3 of them. My cheap-a** penny-pincher self just ordered metal vent covers.

What about the rest of the roof ? I've seen trucks that looked like someone took a ball peen hammer to them.

The rest of the trailer isn't bad. It's an older trailer when they still put roofs on them.

A buddy of mine has replaced those over the years, aren't they only like $20 each or so? And that was at a local store, not through the interwebz network of shopping.

Lucky you weren't caught outside in that Doug ...... i've never seen hail bigger than marbles before and the amount of damage that did to crops etc was unbelievable

I found some nice metal ones for $25 each.

Yes, lots of crop damage around here this year. There are some wheat fields outside of town that look like they crop circles in them.

The only reason I prefer the plastic ones is the light... Other than that metal all the way, as you've experienced :rofl2:

Hindsight. :headbang: Actually, the last ones I put on were a dark smoke, with not much light.
