New to forum

Hi there I'm new to the forum and new owner of a new to me travel trailer. I have a general question and I hope I can find some help. I just bought a 1999 Wildwood lite 19' travel trailer made by forest river and I'm wondering if the studs inside this trailer are aluminum or wood. The weight of the trailer say 2960 empty which is fantastic but just curious if its aluminum or wood framing. Once I get it home I'll have to post some pictures of it.

Yes it is the aluminum slide together siding. Probably wood then. Thank you. Just wasn't sure.

Yep, wood frame.

It's called stick and tin construction.

Filon-sided(fiberglass) RVs have aluminum frames.
