Starcraft and plywood?

I have done some searching and can't seem to find an answer. Do Starcraft use plywood in the magnum roof and floor decking as Jayco does in the Jay Flight series? I like some of the aluminum sided Starcraft layouts, but I really like plywood. If it is OSB, no thanks.

I do not know about your question, but I would add to avoid "laminated" floor construction as well. Numerous ultra-light models have laminated/composite floors. I am not a fan. Definitely stick with 5/8 (minimum) plywood decking.

Our 2017 Starcraft Autumn Ridge 329BHU is plywood floor and roof decking. I would imagine everything in the Autumn Ridge line is.

My 2008 Starcraft 14RT uses OSB on the floor with some kind of black painting on the bottom... Have had great experience with this in my many off-road trips...

The Starcraft roof is either Fiberglass or ABS membrane and the area below it is filled 2-inch foam. Then I have regular 1/4-inch ceiling made of wood paneling.

Seems to hold up great.

I also have a 13,500 Roof mounted air conditioner on top and is supported with two cross ceiling metal sections... Looks like this but I also have a second cross member section on the other side of the air conditioner...

Thanks. The local dealer did not seem to have any idea if they were going to be ordering one to stock. Ended up getting a 2018 Jay Flight SLX 287BHS as they use plywood in the roof and floor now. Although the slide is OSB for some reason.

Jayco has always used plywood, as far back as i can remember, even on their pop-ups

The SLX line used OSB in the floor until this year. 7 foot wide models still use OSB.
