    ok guys, gave it a blast with the hose this afternoon and.... nothing !!

    undeterred, i broke out the pressure washer - and other than blasting off a bit of wheelarch i only had a tiny leak around the bottom of the doors, so unless we've had some 100mph horizontal rain i dont think its got a leak under normal weather conditions,

    so it looks like i'll be carpeting the roof at the weekend

    thanks for you input guys

    Defo works well as did in my caravan and that didnt even leak and you will be suprised how much water actually it traps. You can buy little gadgets from Caravan accessorie shops that trap moisture. It sound slike just a build of heat during the day and the normal cooling process on a night. As already said, carpets probably your best bet.

    If you have been getting into the van with snow on your boots etc, once the water is in there it just keeps condensing and dripping, unless you dry it out.

    Put a fan heater in there, get it nice and warm with all the doors etc shut.

    Then open everything up and let the moisture blow away.

    Repeat until dry, as they say.

    You can do it using the van heater, whilst driving along, but it may not get the back warm enough to work fully.

    Cheapo cat litter from Tesco Asda etc...use it in my caravan and garage. Just put a few holes in the top. Usually cost's around £1:50/£ 2:00 and last's around a month.
    And can be used in the garage to soak up any liquid spills.

    what i did with my bedford cf was on a warm day leave all doors open dry the roof then cover the underneath of the roof with spray on carpet glue leave to dry then rub in some chalk dust the condensation will keep returning to the painted surface when the roof cools if it is not coated
