you could build the structure and then use seals for a garage door to seal the gap. just use screws to attach them. you will be able to remove them easily to remove the trailer.

Before you get going check what county code is going to allow; I'm reasonably certain you can't attach the structure to the TT while a flexible seal such as foam crammed into the gap would be ok, especially after the building inspector has already signed off on the clearly not-attached structure.

Connection to the trailer is just insulation stuffed in the gap,then a trim board screwed in,door stays open or removed.They have some at Riverbend that you can not even see the trailer,and one guy that has a second level,2 bed,1 bath addition.Some even have 2 outside a/c units like on a regular house.


Other half is camping with the angels,Riding alone for now.

Retired-tech: Seals for a garage door. I like it, thanks!

pkunk: Commercial dock door would be great, like the airplane solution, but I've found if I have to request a quote I probably can't afford it.

johnbhicks: The land is in a place with no residential zoning. No permits, no inspections. One of the few remaining places in this land where property rights are still respected.

jetboater: Trimboard, yes! That was the missing piece to my gap stuffing idea. Thanks!

Try and find a long inflatable balloon ( or several). Use it like the dock idea.

> No permits, no inspections.

That's great! White County in northeast Georgia's become too civilized; these days you practically have to have a permit to dig a hole with a shovel.

Somewhere along the way I was told that the reason a structure was not permitted to be attached was that a TT or park model has no wind rating.

Cut the bottom out of an inflatable boat. Air it up to fill the gap.
