    We have an Autotrail Scout and seem (the motorhome not us!) to be suffering from a leaky rear lounge sunroof. It's been fixed twice by a dealer last year by resealing but the problem appears to have returned. It only happens when we're driving as its dry as a bone when static even under the most extreme downpours. The water seems to be blowing underneath and dripping around the internal fittings. All appears okay up there when I check. Is this a common problem....has anyone else experienced this please?

    My van is parked near to some beech trees and the new season leaf shells get deposited everywhere and find their way up underneath the roof light cover. There should be a rubber seal above this to stop anything getting over the raised surround. Mine neither leaks when static or on the move even in very strong driving rain storms.

    you can buy fiamma windfoils that you glue to the roof in front of the skylight to prevent this happening
