They sandwich a thin alluminum tube frame into the vacuum bonded sidewall. Essentially a core of styrofoam with a side of Luan and /or fiberglass. Jayco sent us the specifications to us when we requested them - a couple of samples are posted with this.
In other places, they insert a thin sheet-metal sheet behind the luan and foam to provide something the screws can bite into... essentially a reinforcement for other attachment points.
Thank you! I have lots to learn about our new way of travel so hopefully I can tap everyone in this group when I hit my snags.
I appreciate the specs, I'll work on deciphering them, LOL. That looks complicated!
I am thinking that wiring is not involved within that part of the framing so I can move forward and block out that sun
