Monty, According to the website four 16 x 16 pads are 28 - 36 pounds ( depends upon the thickness you get). That is more than the 2 x 8 hemlock even loaded with lots of PT and they will set you back $150 - 180 bucks, I can replace the hemlock and handles at least 5 times for that, I do agree the plastic will be easier to clean and should last a long time however I am not sure I see the savings?

The set of pads I used for our first coach lasted 4 years and were still in good shape when I got smart and purchased the Alpine. It's all a matter of preference.

Yes, there is one company who markets pads and they have long metal handles on them. I think the rope idea is better because it's something you can roll up. Summet products ones are expensive at 47 each for the 16X1" ones. There are several other brands which I am doing investigation on and will report here once I'm done.
