So I've been working on my trailer for almost two years and have been gathering info here tnttt.
It's near completed but still have a few things to do but I've been using it over a year now.
The sides of my trailer have BLM TOPO maps of NM and CO on the sides. I did the brow bag flooring on the inside
walls. I then did the PMF on the top/front. The back hatch is framed with wood then foam and then a bead sheet and
topped off with carbon fiber.

I like it. A lot.

How'd you glue the maps on, and what's on top of it?

:thinking:

So to get the TOPO maps on the sides first I would iron them to take out the major crease.
Mix-up 50% Elmer's Glue and water. Get a helper and using a brush start slapping it on and working out the air bubbles
and wrinkles. It wouldn't be perfect because the paper will expand when it gets wet but will pull tight when it drys.
Would have been easier if I was working on a horizontal surface, but I didn't. Add to that getting all the lines to lineup
with the other maps because it took six maps for one side. I think next time I would do a collage of maps like the inside
paper bag siding you see in the pictures. To protect the maps I used a few coats of UV resistant epoxy. On the inside
wall I used polyurethane to protect the paper.
