I have an Autosleeper Nuevo that I bought in Sept. 02. We had a lot of problems, some due to what I would consider bad design and some just plain bad workmanship!
Although these faults should not have been present in the first place, to their credit Autosleeper did not try to worm out of reponsibility and eventually fixed all problems.
However!!! I was cleaning the 'van yesterday, and leaning on the front edge of the roof to reach across, I noticed it moving up and down in the plastic strip. Also, water ws between the strip and the roof section. At the sides just above the cab doors, the strip has come away from the sealant, and along the front there doesn't appear to be any sealant fitted.
We don't appear to have any leaks, but I will ask to speak to Charles Trevelyan tomorrow and suggest I take it to them for appraisal on the way to Lincoln.
It may be almost 4 years old, but reading the posts above, it is a known and possibly common fault that should never occur!!!!
Experience comes from what we have done. Wisdom comes from what we have done badly!
