Believe problem to be water running off rear end cap and collecting on that flat surface that is the bumper box. It then travels under outer skin and first thing it encounters is a nice piece of water absorbent plywood. Do that over and over and you get rot. Our solution. Take out plywood and replace with rot proof Coosa. Now have installed this flashing so water will have to route differently.
Thanks for your reply, and accept my apology for my lame attempted hijack of this thread. My concern seems valid in what's-left-of-my-mind... reports of Airstream "fixing" the problem in, or around, 2012 is either true or it isn't, and, if it's true, it either works or it doesn't. I'm still confused (not exactly a news flash!).
