I did the same thing on my street a couple of weeks ago. Also filled up the back of my truck.
Checked with the neighbors before I did it since the trees were on their property. I told them I would only trim what is directly over the road. They didn't seem to care too much for the idea, but told me to go ahead. Of course I could have went to the city and they would have come out and done it, but I thought me asking and doing it myself was more of the neighborly thing to do.

I think if this happens again (and at 12'6" I'm sure it will) I will consider having a fiberglass or aluminium roof installed, instead of the membrane thingy.

Some trailer manufacturers have an option for a fiberglass or gel-coat roofing. But I know it costs some big bucks though. That being said, I probably would have gone that direction when I ordered my Wildcat, but FR doesn't offer it as an upgrade/option...
