I plan on going up 1" only. Just want to get past the rubber seals. I would not want the gizmo to end up short either.

I went just past the seals and applied the Velcro, then went back and staple it to the wood. The tape will hold it in place till it is stapled.

Would you recommend 1/2 inch or 3/4 staples?

Yeah. I think the plywood is only 1/2" thick. You definitely do NOT want to pierce the outside roof! That would be horrible.

Let me re-phrase my answer. I think I used 1/2, but could have used 3/8. Been a while....

So before you decide on a staple length, figure out how thick the roof is. lol.

Yes. But I'm almost positive mine is 3/4 in thick. If it wasn't raining like the next great flood, I would go outside and check. But right now, the trailer, parked in my back-side yard, appears to be parked in the everglades.

Well mine had 5 feet of snow fall on it here in Boston.

Have fun with the snow
