First Build - Squareback

Postby Maranatha1911 » Thu Jul 19, 2018 10:20 am

Hello from the far side of the Atlantic.

I am working on my first squareback trailer build/design.

Here are a few questions for the informed members.

- Roof top tent position. Should I move it forward more, or is it centered over the axle in a good position.
- Weight of galley kitchen an issue with fridge, shelves and cabinets?

Building method is 3/4 ply with cutouts for foam, 1/8 skin inside and out. Floor in 1/4 skins and 3/4 cross members.
Roof in 1" lumber pieces with 1/8 ply top and bottom with foam in between.

Wall to floor attachment:

Any ideas how to seal that bottom edge of the wall to the frame?

Cheers, Christoph
