Just back from Buxton on a two nighter in the Khyam Freelander. Absolutely hoofed it down Sunday, all night. Looks like I have a significant leak from the seams where the bed attaches to the main dome.

Anybody recommend a decent seam sealer? McNett, seems popular.

Thanks in advance.

Dave.

When I had my Kyham Freelander it came with a small tube of clear silicone style sealant to seal the seams.
Maybe call Khyam ( I maybe wrong but I think they are owned by Vango now ? ) and see what they suggest ?
FWIW my Freelander collapsed ( rear section ) in high winds and heavy rain, all that was missing from the porch area in the morning was a couple of Ducks 😜

I use stormseal seam sealant. Apply it thinly over the seam leave to dry then dust the seam with talcum powder to stop it sticking.

When I used to camp with nylon tents I just used to get standard tent sealer in a spray. Maybe this works fine with leaky seems though there could be some deeper issue.
