    Hi, do you guys have experience with sound dampening material on the long term?

    With the buses not being watertight i have always been afraid this will keep humidity in and favor rust.

    Would be interested to get feedback from people who have this installed for some years.

    thanks!

    I’ve had the retromat in my bus for 5 years. I can’t say that it gets very wet in our high desert high climate though.

    It has stayed adhered to the backside of the sheet metal just fine…Being made from closed cell foam and tar, it shouldn’t absorb any moisture. The doors are the only places on a bus that will regularly see water on the inside. If the drain holes are open and the mat is stuck-down without wrinkles there should not be any chance of getting water behind it.

    This bus is awesome! Nice Job KCW, Dormobiles have always been my favorite, so much room and light inside.

    It is soooo spacious in there with the top up!! Feels like a high ceiling for a house even! 😁 I can’t imagine sleeping in the cot by those big windows in the roof 😍😍😍

    Dads been working on frames this morning while I’ve been cleaning up glass for the windows. 0076E759-06FC-445A-9FC1-8528D650EEDFA6DBF8CF-043A-40F4-B854-5C560A8B0C5DB8677C67-AA4A-45C5-BC07-0D9C2675BD98
    Started cleaning the wing mirror glass a bit ago and noticed that one of the windows was SUPER scratched up.

    Found a replacement in the KCW stash but it’s Durvit brand rather than Sekurit brand.

    Chad, OG piece that’s scratched, Durvit piece with incorrect logo, or would you like to source a correct logo better piece?02A2EB36-91C5-4CD3-9954-27A0EF446943
