k1, what about other vents besides the caravan vent? In case you have to close it. Do you have any others in place or going to add any?

I have a couple of small cpu fans circulating air drawn from the hatch area which is not as airtight as the cabin

Looking very good and still moving right along, :thumbsup:
How's that thumb doing? Doesn't look like it's slowing you down much..

I’ve finally sorted fenders. Couldn’t find the ones I wanted at a reasonable price so I made my own, now they just need staining

a note of caution about bending the ply into that close of a radius

due to the way plywood is cut from the log it WILL begin checking if it isn't heavily stabilized/saturated with straight unthickened epoxy resin

if you intend to stain the wood to match the rest of the trailer check with the epoxy manufacturer and make darn sure the stain is compatible with their product line

just this old man's 2¢ worth

If they do cause me any grief in the future I'll just lay a layer of dinyl cloth and resin over the top. 8)
