Aluminum or wood framing

Are the Wildwood X-Lite TT made with Aluminum or wood framing?

Think Aluminum, that's how they made it lite. I haven't seen wood framing in years now. But I could be wrong but I really doubt it. Your walls really do not have any studs in them at all, It's all composite now. But really I have been wrong before but I know I have no wooden studs any where.

Probably aluminum. My puma has 2x3 wood 16" on center and it's heavy.

Our 2014 Wildwood X-lite 195BH has wood studs. We were able to mount a TV on the wall.

Outside walls are aluminum framework and inner walls like the bathroom and halls are wood.

that's why trailers like the Wildwood, are called "stick and tin", because of the "tin" siding and wood frame.
i don't know of any aluminum-sided trailers that are not wood framed.
there might be some but the majority are wood framed.
