Hi everyone. The last 2 caravans we have owned both have rot in the wall and spreading into the floor just under the doorframe. They were an abbey vogue and now a 2002 lunar. Any ideas why/ how to fix please?
Now the season has ended is it time to look at your curtains and bedding?
Matching curtains, duvet cover sets and pillows will give your caravan or static home a fresh new look.

One would assume that water has leaked in around door frame due to failure of sealant & gradually rotted wooden frame & surrounding floor area. For the wood to rot the leak would have to have been around for a long time & presumably caravan has not had an annual damp check as part of service that would have picked this up?
You have 2 choices to fix, proper repair which would involve removal of door frame, replacing timber etc or the much easier way of not taking anything apart, resealing around door frame & any other adjacent seams with PU sealant such as Sikaflex 512 & interior should dry out eventually.
This is the method I have used on my 80s ABI for some yrs now. If I notice a damp patch inside after winter I reseal exterior seams where water has been entering & it dries out over summer.
