Thanks Fred!! This is how I pre drill the panels before I put them up, that way the holes (and screws) are lined up and all the same.

NY Camper someone who's been there!! I am high up in elevation also, so fall and winter come early, 33degs this morning 66 degs now as I write this.
Second part of the question, haha where you screwed and stapled how did/are you going to seal out water?

Travis, I should have said what I did, I used 1/16"X3X4" white butyl tape in between the panels that are screwed, where the staples are they will be covered by the window or door frame that will have different butyl tape (thicker-wider).

Harley1944,

If the advertising doesn't work out you could probably show movies on the side of your trailer when it is done. Might want to leave one side white and advertise on the other, that way you could earn both ways.

I am so enjoying this build, thanks for sharing. LYNNE

Bap I could be the attraction everyone looks forward to coming! I will be continuing putting on the siding today, if everything works out I should get it on today.

Thanks Gordon!! I have a question for anyone, is there a specific height that the rail for the awning has to be, the rail used to be the termination for the roof but I raised the sides 18" can I raise the rail up there and still be okay? Thanks!

Terry - the higher you put the awning the less coverage you will have when facing the sun. I would set the height based on having a nice slope (IMO 2-3') on the awning to shed rain and still be able to comfortably walk under the lowest point (roller).

On the other hand the awning should be high enough so when set at the same angle the door will open and clear the awning.

How long an awning? Longer has more chances of having water pool as it stretches. I set one end of the awning about a foot lower than the other so the water runs away from the trailer and then either forward or back.
