Quote from: ibdilbert01 on July 11, 2013, 03:11 AM2x4s were used for the trusses. They are cut to look like an arch. I just used a saber saw. The ends are 3/4 inch, the centers are the full height of the 2x4. To make a tapered/dome affect to the roof, the last truss from the ends are only 2 inches high. For the top, I used 1/4 plywood, it formed nice and is light. Then I glued rubber EDPM on top. I used carpet glue, because I'm cheap, I also glued Styrofoam to the backside for insulation. (Later I replaced the black EDPM with WHITE, the black got rather hot in the sun and was hard to keep the RV cool inside. )

Thanks,Bill
