    Hi welcome to fun, if you don't get the info on this thread try starting another one with " Leaks in van ". or something like that, for the title then the technical folks out there will look in, like chaser says the more info the better. :Smile:

    Hello welcome to the forum. It's forecast a nice dry week, so you may still get to use it, without getting wet:thumb:
    Till you fix it:Wink:

    HI AND WELCOME :thumb:you say it's leaking all over can you be more specific IE leaking from roof vent or from a side window etc ? If it's a roof vent remove the internal covers and unscrew it then from the top get something like a paper scraper to gently cut through the sealant and lift it-clean it all down and get some none setting mastic or caravan seal/tape then refit :thumb:While it's off check how wet the ceiling boarding is - chances are you may have carpet on the roof which is easier to dry out -some pics may be more helpful

    as its a crew bus, it can only be leaking through parts where the roof has been cut, unless its been damaged. non setting mastic tape should be used to bed in any skylights or vents. if something has punctured the roof, a sheet of aluminium bonded down over the hole with sikaflex will work. i used this method to waterproof a crack in a hightop van once and permanently fixed it

    a photo of the leaking area would be a great help to be able to offer more specific advice
