Hi to all. Well water has seeped in around the rooftop A/C of our Avan poptop and the ceiling has gone from white to blue. The surface is soft and bubbly in part, I hope you've got the picture. Now yes the A/C needs to be resealed but I'm hoping for suggestions on how to repair/replace the ceiling panels.What products are out there? And no, the insurers won't cover it!.... Warrie

Hi Warrie

While we don't have an Avan, I believe that they are still making them so I'd contact the manufacturer in the first place to see what they can recommend. Web site is below:

Friends of ours had a similar problem with their Jayco pop up - it was covered by insurance, and they got it repaired - now it's like new!

Hope that helps a little...

Warrie,

Was reading an almost 7 year old caravan magazine recently, and found a article that mighty be what you are after.

Decoform PVC Panels are tongue 'n groove panels that slot into each other "for a tight, mould -free, practically invisible join. Simply glue them straight over your existing ceiling."

"The panels flex longitudinally to follow the curvature of your roofline and are easily cut with a fine-tooth saw. Your Decoform ceiling will look forever new, and a 10 year guarantee applies."

Phone 03 9466 1611 or email handihome@ozemail.com.au

Wouldn't know if they are still in operation(and no affiliation etc!) but might be worth a try, as you didn't get much response to your original post.
