Just to set the record straight, if you are talking about bigfoot trailers, I have been into every nook and crannie of my 2002 21RB and it is plywood throughout. I have not found one bit of pressed board. I hate the stuff also. It does have panels with the fake wood grain on luan plywood. The cabinet doors though are real hardwood and the structure is all plywood.

I am curious if the new models have any pressed board in them or if Grant has stuck with the old way and kept the plywood in all the structure and drawers.

I just bought a 2019 BF 25RQ. No particle boards in sight yet. Some thick Plywood. All screws encountered so far are SS.

Lauan plywood (also known as Luan Plywood) is a commercial term used throughout the United States that typically refers to a 1/8" - 1/4" tropical hardwood plywood panel used for underlayment in flooring, lamination, paper overlay, furniture, and millwork applications.


It's not glued sawdust.

Thanks Glenn. Although I did not think Liam is particle board, I thought it a solid sheet of thin wood. Good info.

It's good stuff for RV environment. Was somebody complaining about it's use and a experienced wood worker and cabinet maker said it is excellent for the application because the photo finish doesn't absorb moisture so the plywood doesn't warp.

I wonder if Adzel might not be better than Luan in Rv's.

Beats me. I looked it up and have no idea what it is or how it compares. Probably more expensive or harder to work with.
