A really interesting post, Pete. OK I did generalise my definition of a Morgan chassis but, as you say, still a lot of wood in the bits protecting you.

Pete, I agree - but they did last for a period.
However, even with the current pace of the planet getting hotter I don't think we are likely to experience these conditions in Europe anytime soon - at least not in my expected life remaining time of motor-homing!! 
As an aside and slightly off thread - I am familiar with this de-lamination (not to mention wood eating insect infestations) problem from my time with the Bloodhound Missile system when it was deployed to Singapore -when the fins, which were of a similar wooden alloy skinned construction, fell apart before our eyes! Not much guidance available to the system in flight when that happens!

PS I agree with your comments regarding the new rear lights.

Latest CAMC mag came today and it contains a review of the 2018 Bourton. I quote..

"The walls and ceiling are now an easy-clean GRP (gone are the stretches of 'tape', where panels joined)".

Just been reading the (not overly complimentary) review.  It does suggest a relevance to the question originally posed about how moisture levels can measured in new vehicles.
