    The question is general in nature so I would say "all of the above."

    Default I choose Miters

If you close the end then I think the joints would be near equal.
    I choose the miter joint for the fact that both tubes are sealed. That being said, I never seem to go for the easiest way anyway.

    I thought you were going to increase the strength of your 33' travel trailer, 170%, first????
    Obviously, I'm just a hack-artist, you shouldn't be listening to anything I say .....

    You think, Sonora????


    Another suggestion, build the welding table the correct height, so you can place the 33' travel trailer on top of it, that needs to be 170% stronger, to allow for correct tigging of the new frame members. Remembering, of course, that we don't like MIG, because with wire feed we just don't have enough "control".

    Na, hes taken it easy on you, you should try a job site some time!


    People crack me up; they come on these welding forums wanting to rub elbows with weldors, then get shocked & shaken at their attitude.

    Perhaps. I never thought that was especially a bad thing. Thinking is a good thing. Asking, learning, exploring, questioning are all the sources of knowledge in the world.

    Now you personally Sonora dont seem to be one of those hostile people that inhabit this and other forums so I will take it as a bit of gentle ribbing and thank you for the link.

    However, there are here some who believe they know it all. I am not one of those. I enjoy learning and at times that requires asking questions. Other people are so insecure that they cant admit to not knowing anything. These people are usually the forum flamers. They boost their own self-confidence by trying to hurt others. That has always been an alien thought to me. Fortunately I am immune to the hostile rantings of anonymous people I will never meet.

    Oh now there you have it wrong. I come here to ask questions and answer them when I can do so. If I care to rub anything with anyone I will do that with my wife. People on forums have an overinflated perception of their affect on others. I am very happy with who I am, successful in my chosen career and happy with my life which renders me immune to anything dished out here.

    However, I can placidly fire back when I feel amused to do so. The fact that the snipers don't affect me just annoys them more.

    You have to remember we come from a different life style than some of you.
