First, Thanks Pyxleys for sharing this. Great stuff.
My questions is, is there any reason a person couldn't just use a large piece of viynl and cover the entire door during travel and storage?
I envision duct taping the top of the vinyl to the rain gutter, just like Pixleys did, but instead of only a 4" piece of vinyl, use a piece big enough that it would cover the entire door all the way down below the bottom hinges and wide enough to cover the vertical seams (like a good quality inner shower curtain). Then use velcro to secure the vinyl to the trailer outside of the vertical seams and maybe on the bottom too (if necessary).
Anyone have any thoughts on this idea? I can't imagine water could get past that setup. Or does the PVC pipe (that would be left out in this setup) do something that I am missing?
