When I was looking for our new trailer. I noticed this slide sidewall material. It reminds me of the pebbled bathroom plastic like paneling.
I asked the salesman about this and he indicated that a lot of the "entry level" models had this type of material. He said it was strictly a cost savings measure. We have noticed it on several of the Forest River models at recent shows. The color was a close match on some. Saw a toy hauler (XLR) I think had grey sidewalls with black and red trim, the slide out walls were this pebbled material in black.
Our new Rockwood still has the matching slide sidewalls as the rest of the trailer.
I think this is just another cost saver that really is going to be a problem for owners.
