While this may well be true of Boler's, Escape's, Casita's and Bigfoot's, not ALL
fiberglass trailers are made this way. Minimum wall thicknesses in an Oliver
are on the order of 3/8" to 1/2". High stress areas (like the roof and wheel wells to name a couple) are reinforced with strong but lightweight Nida-Core and measure from 1" to 2" thick.
And, in the spirit of full disclosure, I'll stipulate that Oliver's are heavy and expensive, but like the GEICO ad says "Everybody knows that..."
