Hi!
I have a damp issue in the front window (picked up in the last 2 services). I've been unsuccessfully trying to find a caravan servicing person / company to take on trying to fix it. They all say they don't know how / where to source the part.

Does anyone happen to know anyone in the Cambridgeshire area who may be able to fix? May need to seal replacing I guess ?

Tina, ideally you need somebody with Eriba experience, and there are not many near you. I'd be tempted to contact the used Eriba sales specialist Dom Fox who is in Norfolk, and ask if he can advise on a repair person he uses.

Since I have had the Troll, I have been using Stuart Britt of Bee Serviced who looks after mine and, I know, several others (he sends me a photo every time he cracks his skull on the doorway). I'm sure he could help...

Yes I have tried Stuart Britt, he came this week but he's unable to fix this particular issue.

Ah! You haven't said, but I'm assuming we're talking of a gracefully mature Touring range van here.

I suspect that caravan techs aren't saying they can't fit a replacement seal, more that they can't spare the time to search for a source of the relevant seal.

I'm certain I've seen posts that talk of suppliers of such things on here in the past and a search may come up with something. Failing that a call to Kool Classics may help with a source. Once you have the seal it should be easier to find someone willing to do the job.

Yes I think you could be right. I will try to source the seal. I heard there maybe wooden ply piece that goes inside the seal that could be perished, does anyone know if that is true and if so, I may need to source that piece too?

Try these people, Tina. They are literally five minutes from me by car and very helpfully supplied me with a new roof seal during lockdown by leaving it on their unit's doorstep. Quite a few Eribafolk have used them and reported back positively.

Let us know how you get on.

I've never heard that bit about there being any wood in the window surround before. I'd have thought it unlikely but I've never removed a window seal, so can't speak from direct experience.
