Thanks for all the ideas. My trailer is an overlander 1974 with "skylight" kind of windows. Those do leak, and I'm working on them. Right now, it's winter, and there is very little running water. The leak usually appears in storage, when sitting. I'll keep checking and use many ideas once it thaws and we're getting ready to use it.

It's the rivets!!!!!

I had a '76 Overlander that had missing rivets behind the beltline & rubrail stripes. It took me forever to find those (sealed all windows, vents, etc first). I had a wet floor after rain, but nothing coming from above it. After I discovered the missing rivets & repaired those, I went all the way around & sealed every rivet under both the beltline & rubrail stripes. No more leaks after that. Good luck!
