Fiberglass Siding

I'm building a 15' custom travel trailer but I can't find a source for fiberglass sing. Anyone had a source?? Thanks in advance.

sheet fiberglass

Well - if you can handle 4x8 sheets, you can pick up the stuff in home improvement stores. It's about 1/8" thick with a pebble finish and comes in various shades of white. It's very very tough stuff. You'll tend to find it covering the walls of public bathrooms and walk-in fridges. I used it to repair the closet in my Boler (sheathing the old closet in the stuff). It's easy to work with, and I thought at the time it would make a great material for the outer covering of a homebuilt trailer. I was thinking more along the lines of teardrops myself - but it might work for ya.

Fiberglass siding

Thanks for the tip, Mike. I'm in Home Depot every week but I never knew they carried Fiberglass sheets. 1/8 thick would be perfect for my project. I will guess that if it's pebbly on one side, it will be semi smooth on the other side, which is what I'm looking for. I'll check it out this weekend. Thanks again. D.G.

Here's an Idea

Have the trailer sprayed with Rino Lining

Rhino Lining

I know that with Rhino lining you'd have a trailerthat would never leak but I'm going for a smooth look. Now, if Rhino can be easily sanded smooth...........I'll have to see if my friend will let me take a sander to his newly sprayed RL truck bed. I'm guessing he won't.
