Floor leak ...

The rear right corner floor in the closet of the bedroom of my Airstream 28' Safari becomes wet after a rainstorm. I am soliciting information to see if anyone has experienced this problem. I'm also curious if this is a chronic problem for others, and where you might have found the leak to be coming from. At least it would give me a point to begin to systematically seal specific places. I would be grateful for any advice. Thank you!!

Leak maybe coming in between the bumper and the rub rail the runs across the top of the bumper. Could also be the seal of the rear storage or leaking where the awning is mounted. Many owners of your vintage have had this issue. Check the other closet and under the bed too. If it's just started maybe the subfloor is still sound. Check the rear window. The miter joints of the window frame will leak too.

Thank you, Kelvin!! Your advice is most helpful and gives me several areas to check out and begin waterproofing.
