Air Bubble in side of Nuevo Chassis!! Empty Air Bubble in side of Nuevo Chassis!!

Post by DstokeM Sat Apr 08, 2023 7:05 pm

Evening all

I have an Auto Sleeper Nuevo Centenary edition. We have had a few teething problems which have been mostly sorted out to my satisfaction. 

Today I noticed what looks like an air bubble halfway along the habitation unit on the driver’s side. I have never noticed this before. My questions are:

  • What could have caused this?
  • How easy is it to fix?  It’s not 2 year’s old so it is still under warranty. 


Looking forward to your observations.

I had bubbles appearing after 3 years. Rear of van. Told by AS it was water in airline when paint was applied. Renovated under goodwill.

Thanks. I think I have discovered it is delamination. No matter what needs sorting by the manufacturer!!

It could possibly be osmosis caused by moisture penetrating the gel coat causing blisters .
