If they were just screwed together there would be movement and they would eventually fail. A good structural adhesive should be used to join them, I'm going old school and will use Cascamite. My late father in law was a joiner and put me on to it and I've used it many times for repairing furniture and building a conservatory and never had a failure.

Thanks Panky. Reason for question was I read they came from factory just screwed so individual parts could be replaced. Like you I am a believer in glueing for structural strength. The wood currently on my Traveller definitely has no glue and as a result water has got in the joints and rotted them.
