Couldn't hurt. Or polyethylene washers cut from milk jugs.
Oh, I get it! That is why the bolts on the pop-up braces have little plastic washers in-between everything? I'm putting mine back together after the paint job and trying to just replace everything with new stuff, you know,...I need 5 of these things and 40 of these. Now I'll go pop it up and check out where the plastic washers are and fix that.

thanks,
Sharyl

This last week I've been trying to cut out the insulation to form the new roof using a skill saw. It didn't work so well, so I had to buy some new insulation boards, and the new plan is to have then all cut out on a water jet CNC machine. Shop should be done tomorrow.

I'm glad someone is enjoying my misery

The water jet CNC did the trick. All the boards are cut out.

However, the CNC could not make the ~9 degree angle cuts I needed along the bottom of the "side wall" pieces, to match match the angle of the existing fiberglass roof. So, now have to call around to find a shop that can cut a 4.5" thick board and make these angle cuts.

I haven't tried the fit yet, but they were able to make the curve cuts on the bottom of the front and back pieces to match the existing fiberglass roof. However, I haven't actually tried to see if my measurements were accurate enough for a good fit or not.

Assuming I can get the angle cuts made at some shop, and that the curve cuts are already close enough, the next step will be to use aluminum tape to hold everything together and fiberglass the exterior of the insulation "assembly". I'm also thinking of adding a couple of layers of fiberglass to in interior as well, for extra support. TBD, as the interior is already going to have a plastic sheeting applied as the finish layer either way.

Unhappy

I'm selling the trailer as-is. Don't have the money to complete it after buying a house. I'd love to see someone finish it. You can download the GIMP graphics file showing the details of the interior layout (play with the layers). I also have a Craig's list ad. Also have tons of other files regarding equipment selection, ect that the buyer can also have.

We'll probably never know unless a member here bought the trailer. The OP did say he was selling. And had Last Activity: 02-16-2012 01:59 PM almost one year ago...
