Forest River Construction

Can someone direct me to a link that will provide construction materials used (Aluminum studs) in the construction of specifically, Wildwood Lite and the Palomino series?

Thank you!

Didn't think so. Aluminum studs are a must for me.

Check out the Cedar Creek models they are all AL. Here is a statement from the Cedar Creek features that they publish. And I quote "Cedar Creek’s famous ALL aluminum super-structure on 16″ centers or less – no welds, hand bolted and screwed" end quote.

Here is their link to the Cedar Creek site.

Thank you!
I do not know of any FR ulta lights that are not Aluminum studs, and they are few and far in between. Mostly around the slides and windows and doors only... But most 5er caps have wood only.

As far as I know, any aluminum sided trailer, like Wildwood, is wood framed. Known as "stick and tin".
As far as Palomino, depends on which of their brands you're asking about.
Filon sided should be aluminum frame.
Aluminum siding should be wood frame.

Thanks all. Thanks bikendan. All makes sense. I thought I had seen a video or brochure of how they are manufactured. Im in TX and the unit I'm interested in is in Fl. I'll contact dealer tomorrow. Thanks again.

try Youtube.com, they hae alot ov videos or RV's being made and you can visually see what materials are used. Some of the videos will scare you too on how fast they work....I thought product output at Mcdonalds was quick.
