I'd really like to see the original picture. I cannot imagine snow building up on the curved plastic roof enough to do any, let alone that amount of damage.

That picture Gregg (and I) posted is the original picture- there aren't any of the trailer under the snow, if that's what you mean...
I took the picture from a thread discussion at Fiberglass RV http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f...roof-47443.htm
It was started by the fellow that was trying to save the trailer.
He lives in South Central Oregon, and they get lots of snow there.
He never said how deep it had gotten on the trailer...

"Snow"? "Winterize"? In English please.

"Save the trailer"? For what? Anything that far gone and the water damage done inside just wouldn't be worth saving. Maybe the frame and wheels would be worth something but I can't see anything else that would be.

You'd be surprised, Mr.D!

Those trailers are worth quite a bit of money.
I'd bet that this one was acquired pretty cheap, and if repaired its resale value will more than compensate for the trouble involved
I've got my eye on something similar here in Washington and hope to "buy-low-sell-high" sometime soon...

Looks like the link I posted earlier doesn't work, so I'll try again with that if anyone's interested in seeing the lengths afficionados of fiberglass trailers will go to...

Snow in the Northwest has a lot of water content----so a 36' MH with a foot of snow load would have about 2400 lbs on the roof.

If nothing else, it would have been good for body and other parts. The lower shell was still in good shape.
