Teardrop Trailer – Build Day 16

BENDING LUAN FOR THE ROOF

I only got in about three hours today but I started the roof and finished off insulating the front wall.

I tied the rope off to some crossbeams in the back.

CURVING
At first I just used the rope but as I tightened it I realized I needed a better approach.

I added some boards to help distribute the pressure and to keep the ply from splitting. I’m going to leave this tied off for a couple of days to convince the roof to take this shape before I tighten it all the way and screw the laun into place.
