Greetings from Somerset

Hi there,

I'm new to the forums and demountable campers. As I'm on a low budget I bought an old Tischer from the 1990s that was fully functional. I loved the space and the layout and had dreams of the fun I would have using it. I knew it had had a leak with the pop top up but the previous owners kept the roof down and that did the trick for them.

However when I got it home I realised it was badly effected by the damp and started looking under panels and finding wet boards and rotten wood.

I'm strongly considering trying to fix the camper but just don't have previous experience of this kind of project. Is there anyone around I could ask for advice on where to start?

Happy 2020

Regards

Kath

Hello Kath they can be done,
behind the exterior hides a pretty straightforward wooden structure, it's just a case of the extent,

Tischer
rain being what is finds it way in roof down obviously and does most damage, might be worth buying a cheap damp meter and have a simple probe about from the inside and judge the extent.

To do it comfortably requires somewhere large and covered ideally, I understand that parts if needed are even now still available from Tischer Germany

Thanks for the reply.

I’ve been kicking myself for getting caught up in my dream and not doing research.

It was an expensive lesson so just need to work out what to do going forward.

Will look into a damp meter.

Kath
