Much of the trim in coming off and I'm afraid if the windows are not resealed properly, they will leak. It looks like you repaired all the windows in you camper, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Have a great day!!!

Hi Sharon, Im so sorry I missed this question when you posted it before! We took out all of our windows and resealed with Butyl tape and then caulked them from the outside with Butyl based caulking. We haven't trimmed the windows on the inside of the camper yet, waiting for a few weeks to make sure the windows aren't leaking. We are still deciding how to trim the interior right now...

Skpcat-thank you for the response and tips on how to fix the windows. I was trying to avoid removing them, but looks like that is the best/only option really. Please let me know how you decide to trim the inside because the trim that is on there is falling off and does not really fit properly.
Hope you are enjoying your summer!!!

Blessings-Sharon ;-)

Yea it really is the only option, even after doing all that we are still chasing down small leaks, and probably always will be. I will keep you posted on what we use for trim. Right now I'm thinking of trying vinyl wall base as its flexible for the rounded corners, has adhesive on the back and comes in different colors. Ill let you know how that experiment goes. Oh and my name is Sam (Samantha).
