Lite/ ultra lite versus stick and tin poll

There is another thread about lite trailer versus conventional construction. The opinion goes from one side to the other.
I would like to get just for the fun of it the scientific .... answer about the value of lite or ultra light construction versus stick and tin...or vice versa
done in respect of everybody's choice.

If the delam, was caused by your negligence ( lack of maint. water intrusion ) please tell us

Problem or not dont be shy , tell us who built your model ;-)

We have a 2 year old WH 26SRK. We love it and have towed it just under 10,000 miles over the past 1.5 years. Out West to Glacier, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, RMNP, Smokies, etc. Also northeast to Acadia and many other trips.

We did those trips pulling it with a 2006 F150 5.4L. Worked well. Could not have done it without the advantages of a "lite" unit.

Now we have an F250 and have ordered a small 5th wheel (Eagle 291RSTS). Our WH looks like the day we took delivery and we have had NO problems. We took care of it and was rewarded with a very good trade-in value.

BTW, the Whitehawks do not have a fiberglass panel. It is Filon.

Traditionally, one describes a fiberglass with a gelcoat as fiberglass. Filon is more rough and one can see the fibers.

The other tread didn't ask for the board members to vote or to let say participate , the other thread had just an handfull of participant I was trying to draw more attention with the poll... I miserably failed to do so

Some peoples dont like to expose themselves to the critics, so voting can be another way to voice / share experience without involving emotion in the discussion. Two similar thing aren't always equal
