We bought a tear drop camper in October that was built by someone else. I have been thinking about adding a canvas titebond roof to it. Does anyone have experience with doing this as a retrofit? And am wondering how to handle this with the galley hatch area which does not have a great seal on our camper.

Not sure how your hinge is designed, but this might give you a idea. Basically a living hinge placed over a piano type hinge.

D&S, are you doing it to protect the roof ?? If your roof is plywood , that’s a GOOD idea ... :thumbsup:
