Rockwood Fifth Wheel Roof Construction

Not really in the market for a Rockwood, but we never quit shopping for RV's of all sorts. We were just up in Indiana, but didn't have time to go tour the Rockwood plant, so figured I'd ask here since some of you might have. The brochure doesn't elaborate on the roof construction any besides the fact it's laminated with foam and plywood. Not too much that isn't now a days.

So, what type of structure is in with all the foam and wood? Stamped steel trusses, aluminum trusses, spaced on ??" centers, none at all? Just curious. If we ever go back to a fifth wheel, this was one to be considered for price and size.

Only other thing I'm curious on is putting a Mor/Ryde or trail air pin box on it. I read in another post where it wasn't possible to get one to fit at this time. This would be a deal breaker for me, so hopefully reese or somebody comes up with something. If I wanted a bumpy ride, I'd stay in a motorhome. Got spoiled to the Mor/Rydes on previous fifth wheel.

Thanks for any input.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

Man, nobody knows? No factory reps on this side like on the class c side? I did finally read somewhere on the web where the roof does have aluminum framing, but there wasn't much description of how much. Still looking for input.
