I think you will find that most people in the world of travel trailers would suggest you are getting a little off track with the meaning of the term "sticky" in including any trailer with any wood in it
I believe Mike gave a pretty good definition of the term "sticky" when referring to trailers and one that most would agree with:
"But the concept of framing with 'sticks' of wood or 'channels' of aluminum is distinctly different from molding the entire body in two pieces and then bonding the halves together permanently."
If the IPod like the TADA is actually laminated fiberglass panels without any wood or aluminum channels? built into the walls then it is a bit of Hybrid but still not a moulded fiberglass trailer as most of the brands discussed here are.
And yes that is a full moulded fiberglass floor on the Escape (they are a number of moulded fiberglass trailer that is built that way - actually think its more common than not - Casita
, Surfsides, Bigfoot
to name just a few.). Like most of the others it does though have wood sub floor on top of the fiberglass bottom. Some manufactures put a second layer of fiberglass over the wood sub floor (trillium?) while others just put laminate flooring over it.
There are less than a handful of moulded fiberglass trailers that don't put a wood subfloor over the moulded fiberglass bottom.
