Thanks for the cool mock-up. Are (will) the TrailTop parts (be) available?
My pleasure. It's fun for me to take someone's question or design idea and do a concept drawing of it
At the moment, TrailTop is a design experiment/hobby project of mine. I spent today making the main molds for the parts; there's a little more work do do on the molds before I can make actual TrailTop parts, but everything should be ready for molding by the end of this week. Once I've made up some parts, I'll assemble a prototype TrailTop. I'll probably do a teardrop for my Jeep-tub trailer, but I haven't 100% decided on that. In the process of assembling the prototype, I'll decide if any other molds/parts would be a good idea, and if so, I'll make those too (I've got a few other parts in mind, when I get to that point I'll post the ideas for everyone's input). Once the prototype is assembled, I'll decide if I think the design would make a good commercial product, and if so, I'll explore that possibility with the companies that have expressed interest.
Along the way, I'd like to continue to get everyone's input and feedback. Am I missing something? Is there some additional TrailTop part I should be designing/making a mold for? Can the parts I've designed make the types of trailer toppers that you guys would be interested in? Did I get something way wrong? Is TrailTop a stupid idea?
