    Hi All,
    just made and fitted a pair of rear splashguards for my Compass Calypso.

    The inside was becoming damp, mainly from the floor. I looked underneath and found little in the way of spray protection other than a flimsy glass fibre splashguard about 18" long, embedded into the exposed wooden floor of the motorhome. Water from tyres totally soaking underside of floor.

    I used Aluminium angle to make a frame, them riveted on 6mm thick rubber flooring, result, as shown in picture. Well worth the effort if this is causing your damp problems. Now even heavy water just drops to the floor, underside now drying out, will treat with a waterproof sealer as soon as it has been warm dry and sunny for a few days.
    Also shown in the picture, is one of the Technix rear Air Lift suspension bags, designed to fit a VW T4 that I fitted when replacing previous broken springs.
