I'm new to this site and didn't post this corerctly the first time. We'll try it again.

We just purchased a 2002 Coleman Laramie pu. We traveled up to VT from PA and home again. We loved it! It's different from our 1993 Jayco Eagle 10 but mostly we are loving the extra space that we were able to get. One huge improvement was the trunk - you can put so much stuff in there - it's great. What wasn't great was the fact that after driving thru a downpour for three hours on our trip home, the entire trunk was soaked. The plywood at the bottom seems to wick this water up but that's not a good thing either. My two uncles have also recently purchased Coleman's with trunks and they have the same problem. All three models in differing years leak a lot on the side where the access door is (or the water pools there). We've not been able to figure out where the actual water is coming from. My guess is that the access door on the side doesn't have enough weather stripping or something to keep the water out. Can you offer any suggestions for fixing the problem and help our water logged family out?
