Scamp and Casita frames are steel, which is of course heavier than aluminum, as is fiberglass. I would wager the floors are some sort of marine grade plywood, and of course there is no lack of woodwork in the finished interior.

By design they end up with fewer seams than a stick built trailer with an aluminum or fiberglass skin. So it is a matter of diligent inspection and maintenance of the caulking/sealant at those seams. Easier because fewer. But when it leaks - and it will, the interior would and presumable floor will take a hit.

We had a 17’ or 19’ fiberglass model in mind, but with no dealer network they really make it hard to be a buyer.

We saw the Camplites at an rv show, were sold on the all aluminum but especially the dual axles and slideout on the 14dbs. Were in not for Camplite, we would eventually have persevered and gone with the Scamp, probably.

There are a lot of good, previously owned, Livin’ Lite trailers out there in the market. Consider one of them. You won’t be disappointed!

  Sometimes the wiper seal doesn't pop out either.  Normal? 

Might be someone lubed the seals- I made that mistake once on a previous trailer- thought a light silicone spray would be useful.
The result was the seals would not do their flip to the proper orientation as the slide went in or out.
Note-it is near impossible to clean off silcone :P

They are going to an email only format.  That will pretty much lead to zero participation.

Is that like the old listserver system that predated the web? It was all based on emails, to and fro.

That's exactly what I was thinking of.  I can't see a lot of participation, which Yahoo may be counting on.

Looks like the LL Yahoo page is getting shut down by the end of the year.  I pointed folks in this direction.

From what I read ALL yahoo groups are getting shut down.   Always hated that PITA platform anyway. :P
