    Here is a tip for everyone with a Bustner Ixeo Time it590 (and possibly some other models too!)
    We bought ours when we moved to Spain in February, and as it doesn't rain much here the fault wasn't immediately apparent.
    When it did rain (in Northern Italy) the water collected where the hump of the drop down bed flattens out on the roof. This is directly above the habitation door, so if you went out of the door with water collected on the roof, it overflowed sideways and flooded the footwell of the door.
    I thought of all sorts of fixes (bodges), but finally found out that Fiamma do one themselves!
    It is a strip of rubber of various widths (depending how far away your awning is from the side of your van) that goes between the awning and the side of the van to channel the water away from the door.
    You can buy it in metre lengths and cut it down as required, so now I have the water coming out in front of the front window at one end, and between the fridge vents and the rear ski locker door at the other.
    The footwell has never been flooded since.
    Hope that this is of some use to someone out there.
