The 1965 Little Dipper camper that I bought earlier this year for one dollar sat, unused in the woods, for thirteen years, and NEVER LEAKED. When I replaced part of the flooring and sidewall due to termite damage I thought that was all the restoration required. We had a lot of fun with it this Summer traveling several hundred miles throughout Virginia. When showing it off to some friends (after a major rainstorm) water was running our of the door. It seems that the termites didn't stop at the base, but traveled up a corner into the roof structure, allowing the heavy rain to pool in the center around the roof vent, causing it to sag to the point that it became a funnel, directing all of the roof water to come streaming down inside. I propped it up to stop future leaks until I can remove the ceiling, install square aluminum tubes, and add a rooftop A/C to keep my wife happy on future trips. Still not a bad deal for $1
