exterior wall construction

We just brought home our new 315WP And it has what they cll FRP sideing on it as part of the Limited Option. It is smooth and slick,but I'm wondering whats behind the shiney exterior in that panel and how its attached!Nobody seems to know what it really is or how its made! FRP would sugest to me that its fiberglass reinforced plywood (a product widely used in the '80's to build horse trailer walls.) If so,which way do the joints in the plywood run and how thick is the plywood? How do they handle that big of a .
sheet of material w/o breaking it and how is it attached to the frameing? I have more Questions,but these will do for now!

Just says gel coated fiberglass. Doesnt look like its the new azdel coachmen or some others are using, so i guess theres a better chance of delamination. Check really good for leaks or caulking imperfections. I would say its prolly just glued to the standard wood wall studs then screwed on the ends. Just a guess!
