    trailer frame: what did you forget?

    Build - Fiberglass & Foam Truck Camper

    So you feel that 1/2" was strong enough... no real need for 1"+ ? What were the failure points with the XPF ? I imagine the joints... I would have thought thicker would be needed... Congrats... looks good, well done...
