    Truck camper mags: what do you do to clear snow off the roof of your camper? If you park/store it outside in winter, how do you keep the snow load from damaging the camper?

    We got over 2' of snow in the last week, and I'm trying to clear it off the roof of our camper. I shoveled/ broomed off what I could reach, but there's still a decent pile down the center in the shape of a mohawk...

    No damage is visible from inside, but I am concerned about the weight of all that snow.

    I'm interested in this answer too. I'll be trying a large pushbroom.

    I just get up on the roof and use a brush with an extended handle. A broom would probably be better/quicker.

    for our popup, we have to clear the snow before collapsing. i have a 4 foot ladder and a 30" rubber wand floor squeegee with a long wooden handle. works good. brooms don't work very well, but we pack one too.

    Heh, I've been dealing with this as well this week (in addition to researching snowblowers). I went and bought one of these with an extended 6' handle at the local hardware store:

    I bought one of these to keep in the rig:

    EDIT: neither one is really ideal, but a combination of the two would be.

    I'm going to look for one of those -- that would work great. The push broom I tried was average at best, it clogged up pretty fast.

    This is a good start but will take you forever when you have a lot of snow.
    I added a dam to mine.





    The plastic is high impact, and not brittle so it can bend and fold (sort of) without breaking.
    I don't know if you have a Tap Plastics by you, but that is where I got the material for mine.
    It works great, moves a lot of snow fast and wont ruin the finish of your rig.
    I use small collapsable, telescoping scraper/brush/squeegee like the one pictured above for tight spaces and everything else.

    Sno-rake specifically designed for automotive, truck and RV applications. Will not scratch and very effective. Still need a ladder though.

    Building out my camp van currently. I took it to Wolf Creek last night. Got a little chilly, but I haven't have the chance to make any coverings for the windows. My wife is going to sew some curtains tomorrow.

    Has any one here dealt with a leaky camper roof? Mine is leaking around a pop up roof vent. I've sealed it with some out door caulk and it is still leaking. I was thinking maybe the vent it self is letting water in some where. I was also thinking about getting a DIY roll on bed liner kit and doing the whole roof of the camper. Its an older camper so i figured it would be a good idea to reseal the whole roof some how. Any ideas or opinions?

    Eternabond tape is supposed to work great -- supposedly pretty much permanent, for the life of the camper, and very difficult to remove if you screw up installing it.

    That tape + white DIY roll-on bedliner seems like a good solution.

    that's one to not put off. Cleaning the rig up getting ready for a trip i discovered rotting wood and a nice mildewey mattress, which i understand is near impossible to clean and a serious health hazard. I caulked the offending window but the ac unit is problematic.

    Saw a nice pop up truck camper up at the teardrop parking lot on W side of Mansfield last weekend - that EC mag on here? Nice rig -
