Have a professional damp survey carried out ASAP and then you can draw up a plan of action. The engineer will be able to advise you. My best advice is don't leave it over winter.

Hi Mags.
My 05 Nuevo developed a leak in the same place. The roof top on early Nuevo's for some unknown reason has the seal on the outside pointing upwards, so any rain collects in this joint and leaks into the overhead cab then down into the drivers cab. Whilst I was resealing the joint I also noticed the fibreglass roof lip where it joins the side at that was very thin so strengthened it with a bit of fibre. I have checked a few Nuevo's in motorhome sales companies and they all look weak in that area.  You can't see my repair because its on the horizontal ledge of the joint so invisible from ground level, indeed the wife noticed it when cleaning this year and I repaired it some 5 years ago (phew) Hope this helps.
PS make sure the joint is clear of moss and rubbish before you reseal.
