Exactly. Either way its water intrusion and that water is going somewhere. In a fiberglass wall its just going down the inside of the fiberglass and settling on your plywood (or particleboard) flooring and rotting that out.
Pick your poison.
In my opinion they both suck, but its much easier and cheaper to repair damaged 2x2's in the wall. You can either remove the aluminum from the outside or wall panels from the inside. Fiberglass walls require a specialist who takes apart the ENTIRE structure and rebuilds it and re-skins the entire wall.
In warranty, who cares. Out of warranty, which option would you rather pay?
