Either way, the difference is trivial for most purposes and boils down to aesthetic preference rather than anything significantly substantive.
So there's no need to narrow your search based on this one feature.
Totally disagree with you on the strength of a double hull . Th e strength is not in there being a mirrored double shell but on how tha interior shell is formed with all the interior cabinetry ,trolley roof and opposite formed curves.carpet may be pleasant for some and a pain for others .Ive stepped in some carpeted trailers at some rally's with the lingering smell of cooking smoke cigarette smoke and animals and couldn't wait to get out. If I camp in my trillium near a campfire the ensolite will smell for weeks. If I camp in the HC1 near that same fire I will never smell it again. No comparison in my opinion.

I agree. I currently have a 1984 UHaul, which has the double hull and I LOVE it. If it wasn't for needing, yes needing AC, I would keep the UHaul and be a happy camper.

I could never have accomplished anything in my life if I felt like everyone had to agree with me for me to right!Heck, As you likely know by now, I seldom even rely on consensus!
Like yours, my utility trailer doesn't hold odors much either, but come to think of it neither does my Scamp13.
Needless to say, I totally disagree with both of your premises,(or is it three?)at any rate it really doesn't negate either (any) opinion.

Your point is well made! And clean is often even better than perfume.

However...Ensolite is not carpet, neither is the marine fabric hull liner. Neither one is prone to odor absorption. Virtually any enclosed space can have an unpleasant odor if it is dirty enough. Have you ever had to enter a septic tank to repair it? Some of them are fiberglass!
Some folks (not me) even claim that fresh fiberglass outgasses for years.

Does anybody make bacon scented air freshners? They must be better than those evergreen tree things.
Right here at my desk I have a box of "Uncle Oinker's savory Bacon Mints", they make people think you've had a good breakfast!
