    Not enough insulation where you get the damp patches, assuming it's not water entry.

    The vendor should sort it under your guarantee as it's a build fault.

    If it's down to you, cut a smallish neat round hole, and stuff some insulation in there if you wish to get rid of it.

    You can buy neat doofers from boat places that cover smallish round holes, and look like they should be there if you are stuck for a way to re-instate.

    Hi Nick Wildman is right :thumb: each person breathes out aprox 1 1/2 to 2 pints of water per night :Eeek::ROFLMAO:.Leave a window open a little at the opposite end of the van to where you sleep.:thumb:
    Of course 45 is also correct in saying your dealer should sort out the insulation better for you to eliminate the problem :Angry::thumb:

    Re: Condensation

    Do you sleep with the curtains across the bunks and Overcab closed, because if you do it will probably be condensation from breathing.
    For this reason we sleep with ours open and find it cures this problem.

    thanks for all the replys guys our son did have his curtain closed but we did not and both had the same prob i can see that leaving a window open a bit would help the prob but at the same time if it does turn very cold then you wake up freezing cold and with 3 kids 9,5,and 3dont want them waking up cold also my better half has spoke to the dealer today and they are going to speek to rollerteam and ask the Q and see wot they say

    cheers again nick

    condensation

    hi nick
    i have a rollerteam 600g and have had some water ingress problems around the windows.
    rollerteam ( autotrail ) have been great and have authorised the windows to be re-sealed.
    waiting for a date for fix.
    but as i said any problems and rolleteam are great.

    :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::cry:
    live long and prosper
