    Whilst the title lends itself to me after a fortnight in Cyprus, do you think this is repairable?

    Looks to me like a form of osmosis. and likely to be caused by rot in the wooden frame having an adverse effect on the aluminium, a sort of oxidation (Not spelt right. :RollEyes:)

    Needs looking at by a pro.. But possible to repair... (y)

    Cheers guys,

    I appreciate that it's impossible to answer this as you have not seen the MH, but is something like this VERY expensive to repair, or could I do it myself - I am a tradesman.

    It is NOT a job for an amateur as that has some serious damage and even if you do a fantastic repair when you come to sell it there is no guarantee that the prospective purchase won't find problems still ...

    WALK AWAY FROM THE VEHICLE - NOW!!!!!
