I'm not sure about Fleetwood's diesel's, but when I tour'ed the Fleetwood factory back in late 2006 in Riverside California I watched them build the walls and roof for a Pace Arrow on the assembly line. Both walls and roof were made with aluminum square tubing and Styrofoam then bonded together with the outside fiberglass and the inside wood paneling. The aluminum tubing was spaced at least five to six feet apart. They said it was there for rigidity only. Although I didn't see the front driver/passenger area frame in it's skeleton form, I do believe it is caged in steel.

The only thing that was steel was the lower frame that supports the floor and the outside storage compartments.

That was useful.. Thanks.. I'd like to contact Fleetwood and ask them what the cage makeup percentage is.
