About the best material anywhere for such tasks is automotive "Seam Sealer". The OEM variety is the same as what is used at the factories and available through most auto paint & body supply houses. Not silicone, but polyurethane. Tough, flexible and painntable, it is often used to bond panels as well as seal joints. Awesome stuff.

Is that called indoor gutters? I'm not finding those on amazon.

I was thinking more along the lines of the outer seal is gonna leak, so make sure there's an inner seal to trap the water when it does.

Maybe there's a gasket on the part of the roof that raises, but make sure that if it leaks, it doesn't find some hole in the roof to collect in, or a way to get to the insulation/wiring. The best way I can think of would be a solid metal L-channel on the roof so that the water can't run down and in to the bus.

I'm in the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" crowd. I'd absolutely love to have a skylight to see the stars but I don't want any additional holes in my ceiling for the sake of simplicity and staying dry. Not that it rains much in the NW.

I'm already taking branches off of trees with a regular height bus.

It looks wonderful if you're staying in one place though!
