The skin from old garage doors makes good roofing as it has built in reinforcing.

Rt angle strips all round finishes it off

The hardest bit is sealing the windscreen edge as the water flow off the screen can seep (pour) under it.

My daughter lives over Southwold way, where are you located,
I was over there with Scamp and my folding Caravan at the start of this month.

Best of luck
Rob

Dont forget to have a lip over the front to prevent water ingress, say 1.5". Rubber or foam strip all round either on roof wear it touches box section or on box section, prevents draughts and leaks. Pro tek fasteners on inside rear edge to secure. Should be avaliable small enough so you dont hit your head when playing off the beaten track.
