    I'm a "newbie" to motorhomes having bought mine last September. The motorhome is very good although I found soon after I got it that I had a leak coming in the main roof opening. Has anyone else who's got this type of motorhome had the same problem? The dealer fixed it but it's now started leaking again so it's got back once more. Also I've found I have a V-shaped crack in the polycarbonate cover although it isn't where the rubber seal is so no water is coming in there. One other thing does anyone who has this model have a towbar or know if one can be fitted. I want to get a small car to tow but before I do I just want to be sure I can actually fit a towbar.:Smile:

    Hi welcome to Fun!:BigGrin:

    We have owned our Welcome 35 for 4 years from new.
    Your leaking rooflight isnt a problem we have had. What sort of repair did your dealer do? Simply running a bead of sealant around the edge of any rooflight will not reseal it. It is possible that is all which was done.
    Some dealers are well known for shoddy repairs just to get rid of you.
    The rooflight should be removed and refitted on anew bed of sealant, I suspect this was not the case!
    As regards a towbar, we think towing cars is silly, but the good news is that if you look under your rear bumper you will find a trailer lighting socket dangling there!:thumb:

    I have to say that the build quality on our chausson is pretty good on the whole..
    Maybe there should be a chausson meet to compare issues :BigGrin:

    at 4 x the cost of other local suppliers I would hope they should be gold plated. PWS quoted £1200+ for a bar for my current van so had it done for £350 just up the road
