if you're going to use fiberglass. Why would you use wood what a waste. you can build a indestructible , insulated trailer. If you drop it of a cliff you go to walmart to fix . Beware of dam liars about ploy resin and home depo foam it is the easy way to build you cannot mess up it like a Lego . Pods run under 200 lbs. for 5 by 5 by 10 there is no better way to build a forever trailer. Family trust owns a few RV repair shops is also involved in heavy ballistic components.


Those look like they'll last forever

When do you suggest replacing the container?


Each batch gets a new container. You'll want to have a stack of these, new mixing sticks and a fresh box of gloves ready to go. It's important to keep epoxy off your skin so you don't develop an allergy to it. And of course, wear safety glasses. :thumbsup:

Good tip Tony. I was going to wrap the bottom of the wall to the bottom of the trailer (road side) but it was bedliner on it already. I was thinking about fiberglass tape just where the bottom of the wall meets the edge of the underside of the floor, maybe 2 inch into the bedliner but I didn't know if it would work. (Should have thought about it before putting the bedliner weeks ago, but its too late) :worship:

by using hand laid fiber with mat woven ploy resin . we had what destroyed most trailers cost under $50 and a few hr work on the pod . They get laid in two parts outside skin cold and then inside hot making the panel concaved you won't see it but makes it so inpack doesn't hurt it . You lay up flat on a table so no bending over after panel is done you add fiberglass angle. Then fill with can foam at joints. It's easy to keep clean.If you are going to rent no worries if a dog pees in it ' their no way to mess up in the build You use a $ 14 hardboard as a mold
