    i have 2012 Rapido 7086f and in both corners of the Luton there are signs of damp, the dealers have said it is condensation. Has anyone else experienced this please.

    Yes!

    But only on the surface of the interior walls, in areas where air circulation is poor, in very cold weather and when it is habitated.

    If the wallboard is showing staining then it is coming through from the other side and is indeed water ingress.

    Thanks jonandshell. It is indeed right in the most forward corners of the Luton, and it is possible to clean the marks off. I also use the vehicle all year.

    Yes condensation, keep it clean and wipe with white vinegar on a cloth to prevent black mould staining. Rapidos don't leak in in that area as the outside shell is a one piece molding

    Why not put a small battery operated mini "novelty" type fan in that area - to create some air circulation ... :) or something similar...
