Last thing I forgot to mention this camper fits in a step
Side ranger. Is this rare Iíve only seen one or two for
almost none have three to four sleeping capacity.... three is tight ..... four could be accomplished by using floor or tightly in dinete which is best for one. As Iím thinking of selling this what is it worth?
1) Not sure what you're asking, but for short term prevention for a compromised seam, tarp the entire camper.
2) You need to use a roof sealant designed for aluminum roofs on everything around the roof. I recommend Dyco 20/20. You can buy it online or possibly at a local RV dealer. You brush it on with a paint brush over the seams where sealant is present now, not over the whole roof. However, this is wasted effort if there's already water damage present.
Windows and anything on the sidewalls should not use this sealer. If you have a leak present from a window, you need to unscrew the window, remove it from the camper, and reinstall it with new butyl tape. You can buy that from an RV dealer or online as well. Clean the surfaces really well before reinstalling. If you are just doing prevention sealing, you can cover the tops and sides of the window frames with Dicor 551 non-leveling sealant. It goes on like silicone but is designed to flex with the camper's movement, whereas silicone would have the seal break with flex.
3/4) No, can't say I have. RV compartment doors and access panels are fairly cheap and easy to come by. Are you talking about the exterior access panels on the sidewalls?
If you have a C-700 or C-750 camper, yes, they are somewhat rare, but most Sunline truck campers are now even though they built a lot of them. I think a lot still exist in back yards and they just haven't been sold. The mini campers are definitely more uncommon, but I wouldn't say that would translate to valuable either. Without seeing pictures or knowing condition, I see them listed for $300-$1500 on average.
