Obviously aluminum top is nice to keep it looking good, but one of the the purposes of a trailer is too keep the glider inside dry. In New England we sometimes get 4 inches of...

Wet hangar interiors by glider[_2_]
A hangar with insulated ceiling and walls seems to have less moisture problems than one with no insulation. Along the same lines, it seems that the interiors of the newer double shell glass tops are dryer that the single shell metal top variety. Am I wrong? GA
