Now I know why the roof puddles over.

Went up the ladder and now I know why the roof puddles over after a rain. Theres a lip of self leveling sealant where they sealed the roof aluminum sheet to the aluminum sides.

I'm planning to run a 6" wide strip of grey Eternabond around the perimeter, I know this is not going to help with the roof holding water but it will help in sealing it up. I learned from my other trailer to put a lean on the trailer during long storage.

Any thoughts?

Mine looks the same way, other than storing it "nose high", not sure what else could be done?

We are currently looking on adding a storage bay next to my existing garage but for now it's sitting outside. Need to purchase a cover for this winter.

Looks like a nice bead of sealer. Plus I think W&P seals the roof with butyl before applying the self leveling top sealer, so a double seal.

If you decide to get a cover you don't have to go this big 20x41 with 9 foot legs but would be the best cheapest way to get your rig out of the weather.

Man, that is one big dog house. You could fit a RV in there.

I have a flagstaff that I also park nose high to keep the water drained off of it.

We went to our local dealer and priced a "cover" like your, but our measurements were 42x18x13 (my side walls to the top of AC is around 13ft) and he quoted us 4000.00 installed. I think that is on the high side. Still searching around on the east coast to see if I can buy the materials and erect it my self.

You could even run the refer that is not enough of an angle to cause a problem. My driveway sloops back way more then that. I always hook-up the night before and leave the refer on, never had a problem yet. You really got to be pretty far off level to have a problem....
