I do like the fiberglass side. But I feel they need alittle more care then the aluminum. They need to be waxed more. Also if you look at all the park model trailers they are aluminum. Sounds to me aluminum would be your best bet for what you want. If I were to have a seasonal I would purchase an aluminum sided trailer to leave.

Whether leaving it in the woods or towing regularly I prefer the aluminum over the smooth side.There are pro and cons to both but my biggest issue with the smooth side is the possibility of delam. Again this is just my opinion.

We have the smooth siding on our trailer but I would really prefer the aluminum. Aluminum doesn't delam.

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