All Composite Construction

Hi All! I am beginning my search for a TT (30' +/-) with all composite construction.

The only manufacturer I have found so far is EverGreen - all sides & top/bottom are 1-piece composite w/ aluminum studs/joists.

Does anyone know of any other manufacturers that use this method?

Thanks for reading - Steve

Evergreen Everlite, Coachmen Apex, Earthbound, Slingshot

We have a slingshot and really like it. I am finding that our storage space is a little limited but like the light wt. trailer. It also comes with a 2 year warranty and most do not.

The Camplite's all aluminum- no composites at all, let alone wood...

And my dream "next trailer"!

Really sad to read stuff like that. I'm at the local dealer quite a bit getting parts and shooting the breeze and Everytime I'm there he's telling me about problems they have or see with new ones, guess he is trying to make me feel better about fixing up my old one... Which is starting to make me realize is better than most new ones I guess. It was built before the economy was as bad as it is now. New ones are shiny but just like vehicles, the actual construction, durability and ruggedness is pathetic...

Holiday Rambler (motorhomes, dunno about trailers) are aluminum sided, aluminum studs/joists, and fiberglass tops. Floor is wood, as is some of the material under the fiberglass cap on top.
