And the carelessly discarded chewing gum adds another layer of traction for the popcorn!
Oh yes, that's my all time favorite. Because I typically don't notice it until after I've walked across the carpeting at home I much prefer to use the ice for my drink rather than to get the chewing gum out of the carpet.

The non-Molded FG world doesn't use the term because they mostly aren't aware there's any other way to do it. In their experience, all trailers have studs in the walls.


If you check my posting carefully, you will see that there was no pejoritive in it. I just mentioned the way I think the term is frequently used. As a current owner of a "sticky" who will possibly swap it one of thesed days before long for a molded fiberglass one, I assure that at least one "sticky" owner is aware of them and interested in them!

Seems to me that the real issue is the gargantuan rolling palaces that swoosh past us on the road as they suck down all the oil reserves versus the "small is beautiful" crowd. On our camping trips, we run into many other folks who camp with Sun Finders, Cikira Cruisers, popups, etc, etc. But the mainstream trailering forums and publications generally ignore them---as well as the molded fiberglass ones.

So---no slights intended with my post, and if anyone took exception to it, please accept my apology.

Art, I was just pointing out why it's more of an in-house term for us than most RVer's. Thinking about it, pop-up folks might call them stickies also because they are Hinged-Tubies

I'm not bothered by Bulgemobiles much because I stay off the SuperSlabs, camp in rustic no-hook up CGs and camp near the tenters in the small spots.
