Doesn't water generally find its own way down?
I can see tilting the trailer if some huge snow-fall is forecast, but even then the gel coat is really slippery.

Not so much when it's solid.

For those who have snow which melts and is washed away by rain the day after it falls, this works. For those who have sustained weather well below freezing, any roughly horizontal surface has a good chance of accumulating packed snow and ice.

Is that why Calgary beat Edmonton in the Western Final and won the Grey Cup today?

On my 19', if the trailer is level or level-ish, water pools around the vent for the bathroom fan, submerging the caulking ( or whatever the best term is for the sealant). Seems bad to me to have caulked seams submerged under water for the amount of time it would happen in rainy Vancouver.

Hmm... no, probably not related to weather. I think it's just that the current Edmonton Eskimos are just as bad at football as the current Oilers are at hockey. Hey, I just live around here... I don't have to associate with the sports teams. I did notice, though, that the cats in the game were Hamilton's, not Vancouver's...

LOL - - reminds me of the time some friends and I were enjoying a few pints at a local pub at Fisherman’s Terminal at a time many fishermen frequented the place. One of those fishermen, Pablo who claimed to be Eskimo, staggered up to our table and told us he had to go to his igloo to check on his refrigerator.
