The Roofing

Many types of roofing can be selected by the builder, such as sheet iron or aluminum, canvas covered plywood, automobile hood fabricoid, some of the stock roofing and flooring materials Orminoid, and &--- as we recommend --- masonite curved over the cross beams of the frame. This, too, should be glued and screwed. Aluminum moulding ougfht to be used to cover the seams at the sides and made waterproof. The cover of the kitchenette boot will take some carefull fitting because it must be waterproof. A tight fit and a drainage channel of beading above the door opening will help make a perfect seal.

However, in our efforts to show how to build the trailer, we have hurried to have the roof on, whereas in practical building it hould be the last item as it will be easier to make the fittings and cupboards through the opening before the roof is added.
