An answer to damaged A frame cover

Question

Posted (edited)

The A frame cover on our caravan has seen better days ,

Being made of a flimsy plastic moulding it does not take knocks well , and as a result had a number of chunks knocked out .

These I repaired with a fibre glass repair kit , the repairs increased the strength of the moulding , and made it resistant to being damaged , and after completing the process below I testes the strength to destruction, which took a lot of effort !

This got me thinking , and having sourced a new A frame cover , and a large fibre repair kit .

I have re enforced the edge of the new cover  on the inside with fibre glass and 2 pack resin and the result is a strong lower edge to the cover .The re enforcement is hidden so the cover looks pristine

Below , a few pics showing the process , starting with the old cover .

      Spent 5 nights at Blaydon Chains. Obviously caravanners are regarded as second class citizens there as all available hard standing pitches were being held back (by the wardens) for motorhomes! We had to park on the grass and put the car in the car park - we'll go to Lincoln Farm Park next time!   Total now 9 nights. Cheers Keith
