    First thing you need to do is trace and cure the leak! No point repairing and replacing panels if it is still leaking. Look at the skylight seals, then apeture seals (around 'chimney' vent) and work your way down.

    You need non-drying bedding selaer. That will seals all the outside holes/joins etc.

    Now you are 'dry' you can start on the inside....it doesn't look as bad as some I have seen! Once you are sealed, you can get on with drying out the inside with a dehumidifier, and then start replacing walls and joists etc.

    For things like bathroom walls, you can get these in caravan shops, ready to fit......or if you want to, you have the option of plastic walling...which will just encase the whole room and seal up as a wet room.

    Then you can move on to the kitchen! You can buy papered hardboard (white board) or patterned wall board from the caravan shop...or if you are minded to - get some wallpaper and make your own. You can also just paint!

    The edges will need to be sealed - either by strips, or use sealer with a neat edge - your choice!

    It isn't too bad! Good luck anyway!:thumb:

    That look's like polystyrene foam on two of the photos.... is it what you have put, or the previous owner....if not you, it looks like he know all about the leak and has tried to bodge it :Angry::Doh:.....

    1st round looks mildly scary second lot, pictures that is, really don't look to bad, like him up there I've seen (and owned first time round) worse.

    As already said find and cure the leak first, if you can't find seal everything, actually that's what we ended up doing on the old Dodge, it was easier:Rofl1:

    Once you happy, get the interior dry before you start, windows open, heater on etc.

    Good luck, IT WILL BE WORTH IT:BigGrin:

    It looks like it may be limited to the loo shower area :thumb:A couple or so boards from O'LEARY'S will sort that out -£17/18 each :thumb: Get the ones suitable for bathrooms----You could always use plastic ship-lap type boarding from B&Q
