Yes it can be repaired BUT....

I would suggest you seek professional advice.

Its something that needs to be done properly in order to make sure that the cause as well as the result is fixed. A few hundred pounds spent now will save you thousands in the future. (plus of course you will get a guarantee on the work done)

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

We had a patch right across the back of the van about 400mm of floor and 200mm up the back wall it was caused by a faulty shower trap but repaired at johns cross dealers with a year warranty
