I should have mentioned that I wanted to make the trusses, not buy them ready made. The detail I was following in a construction book, shows a mending plate covering the bottom chord, but doesn’t indicate how the top chord meets the bottom chord. I will be using plywood gussets on both sides of each connection with glue and nails.
