lol, those are opinions not facts, but that's you being you.


"The fact is that actual 3/4 inch plywood is heavier and stronger than some 1/2 inch cardboard sandwich."

If that is not a fact then you would not recognize one if you saw one.

Another example? "It is almost impossible to enlarge a small mind".

I know, how helpful is it to discuss the weight of thicker and thicker sizes of plywood? I am not sure what a cardboard sandwich is, but if it is light and has the required strength then is worth considering.

I have salvaged a lot of parts out of old RVs and do know how strong those sandwiches can be, very hard to break apart. Usually a good size hammer or pry bar does the trick.

Make the build light.

Always interesting to see people who are bored with a subject tell others to shut up. If one has been around a lot of travel trailers, like I have, they would know that some floors are much flimsier than others. If you don't care, you don't care. I have seen half inch dips on some of them. We were comparing cargo trailer features with travel trailer features. Some differences are big, some not. Your money, your choice. I don't tell anyone how to spend their money or to quit commenting. I have both kinds of trailers because each has features I like and some I don't.
