Attaching the roof sides to the roof brackets
I'm building a new roof for my Dutchmen 1204 camper. My camper has the Goshen 1473 series lift posts like the ones shown here. I'm ready to attach the sides to the roof brackets. The problem is that if I attach the wood sides to the roof brackets, if I lower the the lift posts all the way down, the wood sides would sit on the camper rail instead of outside and below the top of the camper. All for lift posts and brackets are the same way. So, do I try to bend the top of the all 4 lift posts and roof brackets so they are even with the outside of the camper all or do I not completely lower the lift posts all the way down? Neither seems like the right thing to me. Any info would be great. I have pictures but can;'t figure out how to post them. Thanks.
