Finally... you really think that a body on frame vehicle is superior to a UNIBODY construction? Please explain....
The Roadtrek fiberglass high-top shells are waterproof, EXCEPT for the seals on the three top windows. They are notorious for leaking after a decade or two. The early models have a different gasket design, but in spite of a redesign, the newer seals also leak. Granted, they're in the sun every day and rubber in this environment will distort and shrink. I started to take mine apart, but found that just loosening the screws helped seal up most of the leak. Once I find a replacement gasket (1997 RT 170 version) then I'll do it right.
