    Sounds like the window rubbers perished,allowing water to run into the door.
    there should be drain holes in the bottom of the door to allow any water out.
    A common problem is if the door has had a repair they have blocked the holes up.

    The Camelot is a brilliant design, putting every thing into such a small conversion. I had one years back though never tried to take a shower in it

    They do rust though and quite possibly someone has repaired the bottom of the door. You could try drilling a couple of small holes.
