There's a large group of persons who must practice "extreme mold avoidance" for health. They tend to live in the southwest and either don't use their indoor plumbing or modify cargo trailers as living quarters.
As for Steve and me, although we have an aluminum Camplite, I have benefitted tremendously from the expertise here!
Thank you, Julie
I assume you are one of those who can't have carpet in your house or drapes on your windows
In which case you are concerned about any trailer which uses fabric or carpet on the interior walls floors or windows
. That would of course include ratfur which has no greater attraction to allergens or mold than other materials commonly used in the RV industry in general or fiberglass trailers in particular.
Even those trailers with fiberglass double hulled construction can sustain mold when conditions are not controlled.Proper ventilation and storage are imperitives. A/C is a great deterrent to environmental irritants like mold or even pollen, dust etc. since it acts as a dehumidifier. Still ventilation is a key factor for chemical allergens and mold prevention.
All that being said there are several fiberglass trailers which are built with double hull construction which would perhaps make it easier to scrub and keep clear of those irritants which concern you.
In fact Fiberglass might be easier than any stickbuilt trailer since infiltration of the walls from outside sources is less likely and much easier to control.
Ventilation and A/C, even heat sourcing are critical tools in the battle in any confined space, especially in Fiberglass trailers.
, and Lil'Snoozy are examples of trailers which have fiberglass in and out.
If it is only indoor irritants which present a problem then there are fiberglass trailers with pop-up tops which ventilate wonderfully.
examples would be Hunter,TrailsWest,Compact, Cadet
. These do have various linings which could eliminate them for consideration though.
