Welcome to iRV2.

Personally prefer the flat fiberglass side walls , easier to clean and polish.

BTW. It took me about 2 weeks to get comfortable here in the forums . For questions about trailer or 5ers. Go to the " RV Forums " drop box , just under the iRV2 logo at the top of the page, hover with cursor and a drop box will open and you can access the type of RV you want to ask about.

Hi Ken! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Fiberglass would be my choice also, especially one with GelCoat finish!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Fiberglass looks stronger. I think it would keep the weather out better and longer. I am looking at 5th wheels. The GelCoat is something I thought would be part of the fiberglass, thanks for the insight.
