Hi all we went to buy a 2011 2 berth cotswold today. It was stunning condition and drove like a charm And had low miles to boot. On final inspection  we noticed water in the ceiling light,  just behind the cab. There is no evidence of  any staining or other water damage however it dampened (pardon the pun) our spirts  considerably.  Any advice would be appreciated.  DAVID

We initially thought that Niall as the van had been sitting for a while,  however the volume was quite a bit and the other lights were all fine.  David

You may get more response if you post again in the coachbuilt section, not everyone reads the 'for sale/wanted' section .

Hi piffle 
Welcome to the forum from Bridington, note familiar with the Cotswold, however might be worth checking out the roof vent seals, my old 09 Nuevo had the replace the sealant  this sorted some of the problems.
