    the only thing i noticed when i was looking at them is that,

    the round roofs have galvanized sheet metal and it is spliced together about every 2 feet so it is not all one sheet. i would think this would have a greater chance of leaking.

    the flat roofs that i looked at have one sheet of aluminum, i would think this would have less of a chance of leaking down the road. but here in the winter i think the snow would stay on the flat roofed on longer.

    i am going to be buying a trailer shortly and i think i'm going to go with the flat roofed one.
