I tried my best to copy the Honeymoon Trailer from the Vintage Plans link.
It is circa '39. If you look at the masonite pattern, you can see a black line that is a ~22" radius. Whereas what I gathered and plotted from the Honeymoon drawing is that the front radius is kinda pinched forward. Maybe it's just me but I like that for some reason. Chrysler called it cab forward, back in the day. The other pic is what I built from it. Can't tell, huh? But I know it's there. I also like that the apex is centered above the door. The rear swoop on the template shows two black lines and the blue tape. They are 48", 50" and the tape is a slightly modified 52" radius. I wanted to get the rear to end at the 8' mark and the top to peak at the apex to meet with the front radius without having any flat roof. A modified 52" radius dialed me in.

I stumbled across this pic (copyright aggie79) while searching for ideas-
I think it would be nice to see the profiles layered like this-but more technically accurate. No offence to aggie- just thought Andrew or Mike or ??? could put it together for people to have a quick and easy reference to compare profiles.

For those who would like to have a look I have a build journal and covet your feedback.

I agree. What Aggie79(Tom) did is great; but, that was done by hand and was probably hard and time consuming work. Can you imagine if it were computerized with a program and each basic style was included and overlaid?! It would be that much more impressive and informative! :thumbsup:
