You have been a great help to the development of my trailer ideas. Currently, my ideas are the boat trailer, with a shortened tongue, (12 feet is to long for "The Profile") with a 3/4 inch floor, and a lightweight (possibly Fiberglas mat covered Styrofoam honeycomb, but more likely, a PVC pipe frame with something like a Formica) shell, opening clam-shell style, with a lip on the floor to seal against rain being blown under and into the cargo area. Not sure yet of the details of the hinge - can't hit the back of the car when opened. might have to hinge at the top of the front of the trailer with an overbite lip for the hing(es). Good use of weatherstripping all around.

Off to work. Drawing to follow later.
