Those that haven't seen the rebuild, really need to read Norm's (NGrimm) thread. It's absolutely amazing what he did: Advice repairing caved in Scamp 13 roof

When I had to store my Scamp here at home it's first winter in Western New York (last winter) we had a doozy of a season as most of you know from the news. I was out there some weeks twice a week getting snow off with my long handled snow broom. I honestly went "by feel." I allowed a couple of days of light dusting. But if it was wet heavy snow, I'd go out pronto either before or after work, drag out my step ladder and get it off. I really just went by what I knew to make me uptight or nervous, knowing the amount and quality of snow on the ground. I was quite prudent about it, choosing safe than sorry. And we had so much snow last year, suffice enough to say I was out there many a time, some in my pjs coat and hat, brushing off what I just felt to be too much. Never worried about a couple days dusting though.

Cool How about attitude?

Wouldn't it help to have the tongue raised or lowered to form a slope for the snow to slide off better?
One could use those brushes sold for automotive use.

Hi Roger,

Yes that does help. I always had the nose of the trailer up a bit to help with snow slide off as you wisely suggest. But that's not enough for snow to just slide off all the time on it's own. We need many sunny days with elevated temps, and then sometimes it just turns slushy and sits on the roof, necessitating the snow broom routine.

Good for you. I tried to find that thread with no success. A jigsaw puzzle for sure. Raz
