    I am sick and tired of seeing others have wood rot in their popups...

    How about coming up with aluminum walls and roof with Sunbrella bunkends.

    More like a 100-grand idea. If Airstream designed and made a popup it would not sell for less than that. :eek:[PU]$$$

    The closest I seen are the Quicksilver's but it doesn't have a roof( just canvas), but the rest is aluminum. Cost is a problem on that one. I would be terrified to see what it would cost if airstream made one.

    Quicksilver has the box covered. All aluminum and no wood, even in the cabinets. Somerset doesn't use any wood in their roof and uses Sunbrella canvas. So it only you could put a Somerset roof and canvas on a Quicksilver box...

    My '74 Apache popup had a metal box and cabinets. The "tent" was ABS plastic. The floor was wood though, but a pretty nice marine plywood.

    I miss it. :)

    X2 on Apaches having marine plywood. Mine was also a 1974. The floor and bunk ends were like new. I am sure the trailer had a leak or two in 40 years. It's sad that today's trailers often have a rotted floor in just a few years.
