Does any one have access to plans for a cover that will fit over a double tilting trailer?
Saw one yesterday on the highway, made out of plywood. Not a bad looking job, and a lot cheaper than fiberglass.
My bro and I built a cover out of wood for his double wide trailer. It was more though for summer storage so the sleds would be out of the sun and other weather elements. It is built out of plywood and 2X4's. I don't have any exact plans for it but it works really well. Even if you go down the highway doing 70mph it stands up really good.
I wood think that wood wood be be very heavy. Dad covered his 32 foot lowboy with steel 1" sq tubing as ribs and skinned it with thin plywood and interlocking aluminium sheeting, she is called the silver bullet.
The steel tubing ribs are re-inforced at the corners for strength, enough to support a sled from the hitch. Each sled is hung and the next one slides in underneath. This is over kill....just use steel or aluminum ribs and aluminum house siding for the sides, that way you won't have to worry about paint.
Do like 500 said and use steel or aluminum tubing to create ribs or a cage, then cover it with a tarp, or even fabric similar to a convertible top. It would be lite and pretty cheap too. You could modify the material to fit nice and tight all the way around. If you want aerodynamics, then shape the framework in the front to be slanted. It may not be 100% waterproof, but it will keep the majority of the outdoor elements off the sled in storage, as well as keep salt and grime off the machine.
Another idea is to use 1" steel or aluminum secured to 1/2" OSB or similar, and put up removable sides (like a wall) around the frame of the trailer, and then cover the top with a tarp or something. The tarp could be rolled back to make it easier to walk inside the trailer, plus the sides could be removed if you ever wanted them off. Make the walls only 3 or 4 feet tall, then it would be somewhat easy on the gas mileage too.
I thought about using cardboard or foam sheets to mocke up a cover.then I would laminate fibergalss inside and out.then just seal the bottom edge to keep moisture out.Straight edge,razer knife,hot glue gun,paint brushes and paper cups.
I use closed cell yellow contruction insulation board, the stuff that has foil on each side.
I cut and shape it and use construction adhesive to glue it together, then take it to my local fiberglass shop, and have it sprayed with their fibergalss gun.
I hate fiberglassing, it is a real mess, so I pay them to do it.
They built a dog house like that for a customer, and a 250 lb. guy can stand on top of it.
If you have the time to build it, it will be very strong and light.
