Most RVers want a sturdy rig that uses the highest quality materials and will last for years. However, it’s a delicate balance for manufacturers to meet customer expectations and stay on budget.
Whether you’re unfamiliar with Azdel panels or considering a rig that has them, you may wonder if they’re worth the hype.
Azdel panels are a composite material with a wide range of possibilities. You’ll find them on the interior and exterior, especially on an RV’s sidewalls, ceilings, and roofs.
Some newer manufacturers are making a splash in the RV industry using Azdel panels in their rigs. One example is Alliance, which uses Azdel panels.
Lightweight Azdel panels weigh half the amount of a standard lauan wall. Manufacturers who use Azdel boards can save 270 to 500+ pounds when building a rig.
Standard RV walls can allow water and moisture into an RV. The water and humidity inside an RV can damage the rig from the inside out.
