It must be very good since I have called three different motorhome dealers and have yet to get a single return phone call. They must have all the money they need.

We spoke to the dealer that we bought our Endura from at the Boston show. They changed their brand and style make-up some. Last year was their strongest year in a while and this year was starting off with a bang. I'd say at least 50% of the units we looked at had serious buyers in them trying to make deals.

I was reading some negatives though. One comment was about a major company (not sure which) that was going back to Filon on luan for the siding after running a couple years selling rigs with Azdel siding. People need to watch for that, since a 2011/2012 model that may be delamination-resistant, might not have a 2013/2014 successor that is.


This is probably Evergreen RV in Middlebury, Indiana. Their Everlite models were supposed to be all composite but word is they are changing. Azdel must be a lot more expensive than luan products.

Skyline Koala trailers use Azdel. Hopefully they use it in the room and flooring and not just the walls.

I think some manufacturers are testing the waters. Even Coach only seems to use it in their Apex line of trailers. The promote Azdel on Apex part of the website but not on their other products.

If its as good as everyone states, lighter, not affected by water intrusion then why isn't the whole industry not using it. Probably because its a lot more expensive than luan.

Lets face it, for the majority of trailers out there we are still stuck with luan wood products.
