Wildwood FSX 190RT

Hello all. Looking to be a small toy hauler owner before long. We are looking atthe Wildwood FSX 190RT, as the open layout fits the bill for the wife and I and our two dogs. We are trying to decide between the aluminum or fiberglass sided. I know the aluminum sided has a wooden frame. Does anyone happen to know if the fiberglass sided has an aluminum frame?
Also, by your experiences what would be the best siding to have for durability, longevity, etc?
Any information on the questions are greatly appreciated.
Our last camper was a 32ft Skyline Nomad, which puts me completely out of touch with today's products. Lol

Yes, filon-sided RVs have aluminum frames.

We just signed papers for this same model..
We were told both the aluminum and fiberglass sided models (including the platinum package) are wooden frames..

I just bought a 260rtx platinum, you can read my thread I have going here as well. I got the fiberglass Platinum model because I prefer the look. That being said, this trailer uses HUNG Fiberglass over a wood frame. These are not vacuum bonded like traditional fiberglass units.

Here's a reference sheet I was given by FRClick image for larger version
