So many questions and ideas running through my brain as I am deciding a new layout to the 13' Boler
. I have decided on moving the Refrigerator
to the front, at the door entry, since that is the only space I have for it in my design. Also I believe having easy access from outside (just reach in without going into the trailer) makes sense.
My concern is how to deal with the venting. One option is to seal up using a lower and upper hatch instaed of vents and while driving just close them and turn off the fridge
. When at the site, open up the hatches for proper venting.
Second option would be to put in the normal vents and make a cover to protect them if it is raining, since my fear would be that rain would get driven in. Now the cover could be tight and we turn off the fridge
for the drive or maybe make a molded copy of the surface and space it off with standoffs so that the direct rain would not hit the vents but there is still space to let air flow.
Third option is to just have regular vents with no cover but as stated wouldn't rain be a big problem and would the hot air even escape
if the wind is blowing into the exhaust vent?
I haven't seen another trailer put it in the front probably for these concerns but it seems that it could work but just needs to be designed more carefully.
Roof venting I have considered but how would a chimney look instead of just some vents. I plan on using Rhino liner on the lower front so these things may be able to blend easier than if it were painted.
Any suggestions, ideas or warnings are greatly appreciated.
