Hi all
Ive purchased a rear view camera with built in battery. The mount is magnetic but the caravan isnt :). Im looking at using a sealant to either fix the camera mount to the roof or rear of my caravan or to fix a strong magnet to the roof to mount the camera mount on.
Any idea of which strong adhesives are safe to use on the caravan? I thought about Silkaflex but not sure it strong enough to hold the camera and mount in place while towing.
Any suggestions?

Could try 3M or Sanjo automotive adhesive tapes. Most car trims and some bumpers are held on with them.

Thanks for these suggestions. My worry is that while driving the adhesives may not be strong enough. However ive never used the tape or Silkaflex!

It will be strong enough, I would go for the sikaflex because I have noticed that some traffic film remover products can break down tapes, not saying it would adversely affect Sanjotape,just my preference.

Sikaflex 512 will definitely be strong enough!
I bonded my solar panel frame to my caravan roof with Sikaflex 510 almost 5 years ago and (touch wood) it hasn't budged an inch.

I have mine mounted on a steel plate which is attached to the caravan with three strips of the, self adhesive , number plate stuff. Been on there for over 3 years and maybe 8000 miles.

Just one point about Silkafix, make sure you have a good layer of adhesive between fixing and van 1mm would do.
i.e don't squeeze it out to much.
