The forces on the tail are FAR greater than coroplast can handle.

There are about three designs of trailer tails on big trucks. Take some pics at a truckstop. Open and closed.

See the STEMCO site. That fully boxed version is great for FE. But in a heavy crosswind it’s leveraging the trailer wheels off the ground. The driver doesn’t have his trailer tandems as far back as allowed, he’s in trouble.
