Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: OT-trailer roof material question
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Scott Conger on Monday, March 28, 2016 - 11:19 am:

living in snow country, would the expense put into a one-piece roof be wise, as opposed to standard construction? I already plan for roof bows on 16" centers...

thanks for info/opinion

Scott,

Are you building a trailer yourself ?

One piece roofs are becoming a standard item on new manufactured trailers.

A view of my 24 ft. enclosed trailer ...

Hello Jim

No, I'm not building myself. I find that it's not entirely consistent among manufacturers, thus the question. If not for the fact that my wife and I want a number of unique features, that trailer you have for sale looks like a dandy.

regards,

Hi Scott,

I included the image just to show what a one piece roof looks like.

All of my car hauler trailers are custom built by Arising Industries in Fitzgerald, GA. & I buy only from Tim the owner of Colony Cargo LLC also in Fitzgerald, GA.

I recommend paying a little extra and get an Aluminum one piece roof vice galv-aluminum that many offer as standard. All aluminum is lighter and provides better corrosion resistance.

Why would u want to polish the roof of a trailer?

Richard,

I did not polish it - it just looks like that.

BTW - it is an arduous process to put on a one piece roof.

I have been to the Arising Industries factory in Fitzgerald, GA a few times & watched them do it.

I know that. Fred Dimock was the one who was talking about the polish thing.
I bought mine at Palmento, Fl. built at Ocilla, Ga. just south of Fitzgerald, Ga. I picked it up there, since it was close by, then I had clearence light trouble and no one could fix it locally, so I took it back to the factory and they fixed it in 30 minutes. Had trouble with the roof vents. Had to replace both of them. Good people
