I think Charles camping has a self adhesive J shaped gutter about 750mm long..its made by fiamma....I'm thinking of getting one myself to attach along the awning above the door as water comes in our habitation door also when entering or leaving the camper as water sits on the roof over the door when the van is level.

Wondering would two small pieces of that at the rail holding the lights and reversing camera prevent the drip drip drip onto the plastic skirting at the rear ? Does my head in :open_mouth:

I presume the guttering has to be tilted towards where you want the water to go ?
Meaning there's no down spout involved.

Personally I would follow a trim line and have it looking straight to the eye or at most have it slightly off level, it may not catch all the water in a heavy downpour but should help when a small shower..."thule" do them as an add on for their awnings to prevent the water dripping off the front of the awning...them ones are about 3.5m long.

Yes, fit it in a curve high at the centre, and a small radius at each end to take water away from the door.
