Hi, We have been gradually repairing our Swift corvette and are now working on the back end of the caravan. We’ve found the leaks and resealed everywhere, and are putting the new ply inside. We are having trouble getting the glue to stick evenly throughout the panels, so although it is clearly stuck there’s a bit of flexing on the aluminium shell if you push it. Is this a problem, or are we over thinking it? The ply panels have been glued as well as screwed onto the frame. Furniture isn’t back in yet, which I’m guessing may make a difference to the overall structure. Just worrying as we have a long trip across France and Germany booked and wouldn’t want Clara to fall apart on the motorway! Thanks for any advice!
This is an Australian vintage caravan site dealing mostly in pre-1970 caravans. We don't have many/any Swift caravans here, so I'm not able to say how these were built and whether the soft feel is normal. Before you installed the plywood, was there framing visible and was that OK? If there was a water problem and has been left for too long, it could also damage the frames. Have you tried this FB site? www.facebook.com/groups/SwiftCaravanOwnersClub/ They seem to be English and could be of better help then was can
