I'm not talking about the entire cabinet - just the stiles (face frames) and doors. Almost all use hardwood doors, and better units use hardwood stiles. The rest of the cabinet is plywood or luan - and yes, necessary for lightweight.
Montana, Riverstone, Bighorn, Landmark, Jayco Pinnacle, Redwood, etc. all use hardwood stiles.
