Dog sleeps at my feet, on a pseudo-bed. He doesn't take up too much space, though he boofs in his sleep and twitches against the walls with his claws. Leah needs to create (and patent) some Dog Hush Walls. He creates a lot of body heat. Actually, we all do. A blanket is barely necessary. The fan, fortunately, works great.

The door fits, although it doesn't swing all the way out. I don't like that. But there's not much I can do about it now.
This is a patient job: fitting, filing, installing, uninstalling, fitting again, filing - you get the idea.
And a nagging thought pops in my head: this is supposed to be leak-proof???

Oh, the hatch, the dreaded hatch.
Building a door with a curve to match another curve exactly and fit inside within 1/2" is pretty hard.
But, I did it and it really wasn't that hard. You just have to be patient.
There are easier ways to do this. I think the hatch profile should get cut in the beginning with all the other major cuts. That would be a start.

Did I mention that I'm difficult?
I didn't learn from my previous aluminum sheet wrangling experience one bit.
This sheet was 5'x12' and after a considerable battle I finally got it where I wanted it.
This is more of a 2-4 person job; you want to lift it up over the trailer and place it pretty close to where you want it.
