Thanks everyone who chimed in. We bought a Grey wolf 26dbh with a small outside kitchen. We live in the mountains of PA and don't see hail all that often. And the price was right - under 20K.

Yes, although I keep my TT under a carport the front got hail damaged due to a driving wind. Just the front to repair is $3k

I've had both and fiberglass is a lot easier to clean and maintain. I won't go back to aluminum.

I had a 28 bh Greywolf with aluminum sides and now I have a 272 Vibe with fiberglass sides. I didn't have a problem with either but I like the better insulation and aluminum frame in the vibe. I enjoyed both.

It is interesting how the industry changes, when we ordered our 2013 Jayco Jayflight 26RKS that model only was available in the Aluminum and we were set on that model... we built a 30 x 36' RV garage for the TT and the Truck and both stay in there when in use... so, the TT still looks new. If I were to look for a new unit, I"d look at the Aluminum frame with smooth sides... they do look nice, but for the amount of time we get to use it I think this one will last us for quite a fw years and still look new when we eventually go to sell it... Saying that with Jayco being bought that is what I would have to look at .... what is changed with the Jayco units.. after about 2015 they seemed to keep getting more basic on features and lighter.... guess with so many folks towing with 1/2 ton PU's weight is a big factor... Either way.. enjoy your new unit ..... So many choices today you just have to find the one that fits your needs..
