    My 1991 Hymer has developed a leak that looks as if it is coming from the roof seal.
    Has anyone had experience of getting a Hymer resealed and by who did it and was it good value.
    also the windscreen rubber has shrunk and needs replacing along with the windscreen as it is starting to fog any ideas

    Can only comment on the windscreen, which is just like mine is getting. It's de-laminating, a by product of age and to much sun. Perfectly OK, unless it gets into the swept area of the wipers, and then it borders on an MOT fail. Two options. Claim for a 'damaged' screen on your insurance, (and at the same time get the rubber replaced), or just pay for a new screen outright.

    we had a delaminated (white area) on our screen in one corner, this area got hit by a road chipping and instantly cracked right across the screen. we then had to have a new screen, the fitters said the delaminated area is much weaker.

    But get your wallet ready, my motorhome is insured on my business fleet policy for ease, this meant I had to pay my own VAT, so I know the screen cost over £2K

    This was on a Pilote not a Hymer, but if anything the Hymer probably has a more rounded screen and I would expect to cost more

    We also had a massive leak past the new screen, possibly just badly fitted, it got sorted before we sold it

    Good luck with yours!!
