We are new at this, and not sure if our previous message went through, so will try again.

We are having water get in our front window of our 16ft Scamp when there is a heavy rain.The seal is also starting to be brittle and have cracks. We called Scamp and ordered a new gasket, and asked if we would be able to install it our self. They said it was do-able, that the window pops out and back in.

But if I remember right someone mentioned that it was not that easy to do. So was wondering if anyone on this forum has done this and if so could they explain the process? Or is this a job that we should hire done and if so what is the best place to have something like this done?

We would so much appreciate any help or advice along this line. Thanks!

Charles & Sue

The gasket lock strip (center piece) requires a special tool to install the gasket. They're available on eBay cheaper than most retails stores. A member here in my local area had both the front and rear windows regasketed (she supplied the gasket) by a glass shop. Total cost $100... and they came to her location.

Thanks for your quick reply:-) We will try what the member you mentioned did--a glass shop. I'd rather pay just for the peace of mind.
