    One addition that I made makes the camper much more comfortable. I cut a piece of 3/4” plywood ta little less the interior width and about 28” avg height with rounded top corners, padded one side and upholstered with grey vinyl material. Placed it at a comfortable angle against the front. Had room to
    store sleeping bags/pillows behind it and still have plenty of stretch out room. I’m 6’2”. It’s not fixed to anything. Just rides along. Great for lean back reading, hanging out.

    I’ve had the camper built for a couple of years. Galley hatch leaked from the start. Problem comes from uneven build up of epoxy fillet where you have to hammer the gasket in place. Replaced the entire gasket, leaked. Gave up on that and went with Home Depot door gaskets and silicon. Leaks. One guy on the forum suggested a sump pump. Also installed a rubber flap on the top edge – outside to diverts water. Leaks. Then I installed 2 pull down tightner latches near the outside outward corners to pull hatch down tight against the gaskets. Leaks. Then I bought a really well fitting camper cover on Amazon. Problem solved.
    You will also find problems with the door hardware rattling loose and the hardware falling apart, even with lock tight. Galley hatch and doors were over engineered and the correct installation beyond me.

    I to have leaks in the galley. Took off the original gaskets sealed with adhesive sealer, applied the new. Still leaks. Very hard to clean up and to apply plus I have spent an additional $75.00 in gadgets that don’t work. They cannot sucesfully make the bend around the corners. Tapping the gadget in with a small hammer gets it on but splays the metal part out so much that it is ineffective. Read the other posts seems fairly universal. Sump pump is the answer.

    I had the same problem. Solved it by cutting a 3/4” piece of MDF to fit propped back. Covered the edges with pipe insulation then covered the entire board with backing and then grey leatherette fabric. It is not fixed to anything, just sits on top of the mattress. As a plus it gives extra storage for two Sleeping bags and pillows. Surprisingly there is still room to stretch out in it. I’m 6’2.
