Can you tell if your leak is an ooze under the wooden rim?
Maybe a layer of butyl tape would cure it

On our compacts the rim is a turned up fiberglass curb of a couple of inches

So took my Campster back to my favorite local RV shop along with a printout of comments posted here. They gladly reinstalled, at no cost to me. These guys have been super every step of our renovation. The Campster is garage stored, so may be awhile before we are out in the rain for a test, but feel pretty good that the problem is solved. Thank y'all so much for your help!
AND if you are ever in the San Antonio/New Braunfels area, these guys on I-35 are the best!: Texas Hill Country Coach

Campster canvas repair


I had Red Hot Interiors in Bend, Oregon make my new canvas top and install it on my 1970 Campster. They also replaced some of the rotten wood that they found around the top.

Red Hot Interiors

767 SE Glenwood Dr,
Bend, OR 97702
(541) 382-8390

They said they would keep the "template" for the canvas top in case someone else ever needed to replace theirs....

They did an awesome job!
