I have a 2006 Fleetwood Tioga with a water problem over the cab. (see photo: Water Damage ) As I dig into it and figure out the best way to repair it, I wonder just how long any repair I do will last. I noticed that all newer models have a One-Piece Molded Fiberglass Front End Cap, which makes total sense. If you put "RV Water Damage" in google, the primary result is Cab over damage in a class C. Does anyone know if it would be possible to buy one of these end caps from Fleetwood and install it on an older model that did not originally have one. Seems to me that would be the way to fix it right.

Hi,
We have a 93 Gulf Stream Conquest. We had the same exact problem. My husband had to redo the whole front. Look us up yeryralph. We have pictures posted on the repairs that were done. You don't have to buy a new front... you just need a weekend, a homedepot near by, and patience. It was not that expensive either. As long as you do it yourself...
Good Luck

Years ago I considered buying a damaged C, hit a tree limb. I searched high and low for a fiberglass bucket like you are considering. Funny thing, nobody would sell me theirs.

Did you figure out where the water leak was?

Not yet. There is just nothing apparent. I'm going to pop the windows out next.

When you find the leak I would appreciate your letting us know. As a fellow C owner I am always disturbed when I see cab leaks - especially in relatively new ones.
