I am just about finished replacing all the rotten framing (yeah! - even my father in law is starting to believe!), however, not sure how to handle the piece that runs along the back and forms the bottom of the window frame. The side pieces for the frame sit at an angle. If I put the frame piece in so the ends along the trailer parallel the skin, the angle is off. If I set the bottom frame to the angle of the side pieces, it attaches weird at the ends.
I tried to attach photos, but wont let me. I can email them to anyone who can help.
Any suggestions for how to handle?
Should I cut an angle on the bottom frame? Put it in with a small gap and move on?
Your question is one of the best reasons I made the videos. Kinda hard to explain. The frame for the front and rear windows on a round trailer needs to be flexible. Thats why the old frames were put together with staples. I just use 3 or 4 inch by 2 or 3 inch metal skin and leave a little distance between the pieces so the frame is flexible by just a little bit. Staple the metal skin to the front of the framing to attach the pieces together at all the joints.
