Help affraid affraid affraid affraid
well,I am in the process of cleaning my Dora, for the first time, and have found a pin hole in the roof, should I use tenacious tape on the inside or the outside of the roof. it was up in the rain last night but no sign of leakage inside. I haven't got a roof liner and the hole is very near the apex.

Essie in need. xxxx

With the roof being double skin and as you say a pin hole i think i would cut a small neat circle of tape and apply it on the out side,there would be no harm in doing the inside also but if you cant see the hole you will see the patch so maybe best left.

Thanks for that, Mike. That is what I will do, but not unless it sticks in the rain. Have introduced our dog Tipper to the camper, she has no problem getting in and out, shes 12 and acts older.

Do you have any seam sealant or a tent repair kit - the glue out of the kit would do and seal it. Just put a tiny bit of the glue/sealant on the hole, I've also heard evo stick works too but haven't tried it myself.
