    ... ensure that you close the vent on top whenever it rains. I left mine opened just a bit last night by mistake and not a lot of water got in, but enough to cause the floor to buckle a bit. :(

    sorry to hear about that. thanks for remiding me. i hate to leave the vent open when im not towing in case it rains, but when you open the back door its like a power surge of oven hot air. companies shoud try and incorporate some type of floor vent that you could open in close.

    My trailer has a rain shield and so far I have never closed it and rain has never entered the trailer. Just remember to allow gas fumes to exit the trailer before firing up any mowers if you have fuel stored inside and all vents closed.

    Ray, what does that rain shield look like? I'm wondering if I could fix one up for mine.

    Thanks, Ray. I'd say that would be worth the investment.

    That looks like a nice vent cover. I don't have roof vents on my "Pace" trailer, in fact it didn't come with any vents. :(
    I ordered the side vents from "Wells Cargo" that I think come on all of their cargo trailers. They don't let any water in, but I think roof vents would keep the trailer cooler. Days like we had today, you'll walk in there and feel like you're going to burst into flames.
