i have been mulling this over for ages.... the gutters on my van are tiny tiny and run off basically down the back of the van round the kitchen windows and down the front of the habitation cab-bed at the front and then drip off onto the metal front the truck at either side where they hit the "trim" which is coming off here and there. The guttering has come off several times when driving down tiny lanes and under over hanging trees and been removed, recovered, re-glued to the roof edge and then come off again.
so do i need them at all ? what do others think ?
the only place it seems to matter is above the habitation door, where the remaining half of the guttering drips off onto the habitation door seal. if i leave that half of a gutter in place i do have some rubber heavy duty flexible guttering which i could put over the hab door.....
but what damage, if any, would i cause the van if i got rid of all the gutters.... ?
My mates campervan leaked badly from the top of the side sliding door so I glued with Sikaflex and screwed with self tappers some cable trunking minus the top cap, it worked a treat. You can get various widths to suit. Unfortunately I can't post a link from my phone but some kind soul will probably do it for you.
I did see a van once with short pieces of 15mm water pipe just pushed over them to deflect the water away from the van, seemed to work while stationary .
Book a ferry to africa.
