i plan to try and finish my build this year things have changed so I will be spending more time at home and can finally get the main parts of the trailer done.

Not having a plan at the start :? has not helped me. and now being free'd to start working on this :NC to be coming more ;)

I have the screens for the trolly top done just need to attach them and move on to the outside windows being mounted and swing out for air.

have sever computer fans will mount them at opening of roof vent to blow either way. We do camp in Death Valley from time to time.

More pictures to come. :thumbsup:

I picked up boards for the outside windows for the trolly top
. 5'x 11 1/2 " Popular wood
Will cut length down to about 36" and cut the width in half. Then cut out where window goes -1/4 " all around the inside. Then use the router to cut a lip for it to lay in.

I know pictures. I might start that Wed. if i do not have jury Duty. :oops: always something. They use to call me at Christmas. :rofl:

these windows inspired me and made the idea to making my own windows for the trolley to more real.

157168
Here are the finished screens for the inside and the cut out plexiglass ready for the frames.

I will trace them then come in 1/4 inch then rout the edge so the window has a place to set in.

then design a push pull rod to open and close the windows. cutting a small slit in the screen frame where the cross slats are.
I will try and photograph it as I do it.
