RV de-lamination

In searching Internet and reading an article about Fiberglass TT compared to Sticky TT, one site (probably that sells Stickys) warned about RV de-lamination for Fiber Glass TT. Is this really something to be concerned about?

Thanks for info.

No, not a concern. There's nothing to de-laminate since these trailers are built like fiberglass boats, not a sandwich.

This is my trailer coming out of the mold

The delamination occurs on the stick built RV's that have a sheet of fiberglass attached to the inner core. Moisture can get between them from roof leaks, and then temperature changes can cause the delamination.
Not a problem with our molded fiberglass campers.
