When did RPOD switch from fiberglass to aluminum

I am shopping for an RPOD and was told that they used to be made with gel-coated fiberglass siding, and are now stamped aluminum. When did this change? The one I am looking at is a 2015 and has the tann-ish siding with the frog on the lilly "pod", rather than the new green colors. Is that a fiberglass version?

All Pods are gel-coated fiberglass. No change to them.

thanks I must be misinformed. It seems they switched colors mid year for the 2015 models. anyone know what other differences there are besides interior/exterior colors?

They will pretty much be the same.. model years and option changes don't go hand in hand with TTs like they do cars and trucks.

And Travis is correct, all pods are a fiberglass construction, even the roof, which goes on in one piece, and except for the openings for vents and a/c, is completely solid, no seams.
