Gelcoat 5th Wheels

So this past week I was up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan at a county park and saw another Gelcoat 5th wheel. In the 15 years we have had this 5th wheel we have never seen another 5th wheel similar to ours until last week. I was so excited to see one and hoped to talk to the owners but did not have a chance. So I am curious if anyone else has one on the forum.

I think they meant filon sided, instead of aluminum siding.

I think you are right. I never really knew what the sides were made of. They are smooth and not aluminum. I have just never seen any besides ours, a Wildwood 5th wheel With smooth filon sides, until last week.
