Looking at a new 33RLDS With Fiber sides

anyone have any history with this unit?

I am a bit concerned with the construction being fiber sides on wood frame - does this make any difference?

We currently have a 08 29D with fiber sides and i believe aluminum composite frame.

give your thoughts please

here is a link to the unit we looked at last night


2015 Eagle 338 RETS
06 2500hd Silverado 4x4 crew
6.6 Duramax (lbz),Crew cab
Equalizer brand wd/sway hitch 12k
3 kids
3 dogs
1 outstanding wife :D

We love our 33rlds but we have the aluminium. Our first camper was smooth and we had delamination within the first year so its not for us..Its seems its hit or miss with the delamination from what I see on the forums.

2004 Chevy Avalanche 2500 8.1

Fiberglass Sides

Looks nice, appears good quality. I considered Glass siding, however as with many new improvement efforts decided to wait until this innovation has been in production 2 or 3 yrs. We purchase a 2015 33RLDS with aluminum siding. Our previous Jayco had aluminum siding, no problems. By the way, I talked with a dealer who before leaving the factory noticed the unit he was picking up had one fiberglass side coming loose from the wood. Unit went back into the factory for repair.

Our old camper had delam problems big time. Drive around any campground and look closely at all the fiberglass campers and you'll see plenty of evidence of delamination especially in the front and around lights/plugs etc.

Wood frame and fiberglass sides makes for a lot of weight. I see that the dealer has it listed as a Park Model.

We have a 330RLTS and it is lighter. It is a great floor plan.
2011 Eagle 330RLTS with just about every option.

I was born with nothing and I still have most of it left.
