Aluminum Frame Truck Camper Manufacturers
« on: January 29, 2012, 01:41:40 PM »
I am looking for a truck camper with aluminum wall framing.  The outside sking can be either aluminum or Fiberglass.

1.  What year did Lance start using aluminum wall framing?

2.  I know Artic Fox started using aluminum wall studs in 2005

3.  What other campers have aluminum wall framing?

Am considering Bigfoot and Northern lite as well.

AlpenLite had some.  Lance was late switching over, I used to ask and was told wood was superior, then they switched. 

I have has a Sunline where I learned why wood was not superior, a Coachmen that solidified that outlook, an Arctic Fox and the AlpenLite.  The AlpenLite was the best by far.  Arctic Fox a close second, but mine was a year or two before they went to alum. 

Hold out for the alum, while wood is good, if there is any poisture, and there will be, it gets bad.
