End Caps

Hi All,

Just another option from my boat building days . . . we used to laminate birch plywood into 1" thick pieces and use contruction adhesive to attach them to the aluminum hull. Gives you a nice base to screw an inner shell too (also helps strengthen the shell) and handled the curves easily.

BTW, love the forums!

Best (and please keep the pictures comming),
Alex

Hi, Alex and welcome to airforums.com!

Why don't you sidle over to the member introduction subforum, and let us know about yourself? Your trailer sounds familiar to me!

And post lots of photos of it, please....?

cheers,

Aage in Aurora, ON

I too am planning to remove the front cap of our '74 Sovereign and replace it with birch plywood, but I'm hoping to do something similar to what is shown in these photos of Barbara Brown's Airstream. More photos are available online, and this trailer was the subject of an article in Airstream Life a couple of years ago.

Does the front end cap serve any structural function? It seems to be much thinner than the rear end cap.
