    Well it has happened to me. We have a leak in our front area door of our hybrid. I've resealed everything from new buytl tpe on hatches, caulked all screws, resealed all edges. There is not a seam or area that has not been resealed. I will try to get pictures up tomorrow but I'll describe what I have.

    The trailer is a Trail Cruiser c=19. I'd love to hear from others who own this trailer.

    There is a small storage compartment on the lower front that goes across the front of the trailer. We get water while we drive the vehicle and not when parkedin rain so that narrowed down the cause. Now if anyone else knows that hinge area at the bottom has a cavity behind it that allows any water entering the hinge to escape. On the bottom corners there are openings. These concern me but I'm told that is also to let water out.

    I'm thinking of having a rock guard type palte installed across the front that will wrap under the front a couple inches. I'd seal that all up. Do any other r-vision owners have the same hybrid front door system that I'm talking about. Is can you send me a picture or suggestions to stop this water coming in while driving.

    I should have never switched from a pop up. I want to go back ot a pop up now...badly.

    These are not my pictures but this is the trailer....

    where's the water getting in ? around the bunkend or the storage compartment? If it's the bunkend, and you still have the old screw down style latches, I'd say those are at least part of your problem if not the whole problem.

    I think for the money I'm going to add these latches. Thanks.
