Thanks for your reply John but the condensation is in between the panelled glass looking like a seal could be gone.

Hi,  there is a small plastic bung either side of the window, well there is in mine, if you very gently take that out the condensation will clear, then replace the bung.

We have had condensation within side windows and rooflights these past few days whilst away in baking North Wales.
At first we thought some sort of seal must have broken down within the "double glazing" of the acrylic windows.
However, we noticed several other vans and caravans were all suffering from the same thing and we assume that it has been caused by the vast temperature fluctuations (minus 1 at night and plus 18 during the day).
Happily, like yours, ours all seem to have settled down now that we're back home in moderate weather.
