We all know the pros and cons of wood trailer construction but I was wondering if they use heavier studs for Toy Haulers compared to a Travel Trailer? You would think so considering the cargo capacity of a Toy Hauler vs a Travel trailer.

My toy hauler has a quite heavy steel frame with a lot of gussets in the floor. I'm not sure any travel trailer is comparable. But you also wouldn't put 5500 pounds of stuff in any travel trailer.

They stiffen up the floor but I bet the walls are the same.
