Looking at a 2011 Zinger 19RDS....fiberglass exterior??

I'm looking at buying a nice used 2011 Zinger 19RDS......but unlike all of the other that I've seen.....this one has a fiberglass exterior, not metal like the others of that same year. Did Crossroads make that same model and year of Zinger in fiberglass exterior and metal exterior?

Here is what I'm looking at.....



Here is what every other one I've seen looks like.....

From looking at the Rv NADA book, it looks like the fiberglass walls were an option for that year.

Does anyone know how crossroads put the front of those zingers together? The more I look at that picture of the one im looking at, I have started to noticed some waves and bumps in the front. Did they bond the fiberglass to the wood sheeting, or just wrap it around the wood?

Is it delamination? ?

I agree, looks like delamination to me too.

Well I went out to take another hard look at the trailer. The standard Zinger 19RDS is metal sided...but apparently the owner paid extra for the option of having fiberglass sides......and running the rubber roof material all the way down to the front of the trailer in one solid piece.....the front is rubber, not fiberglass!

The guy show me in the manual where it says you might see some wrinkling of the rubber front material as the trailer heats up and cools down.

The entire front section of material doesn't even feel like its glued down...its like they just stretched it tight, and the attached it around the outside to the trailer. I got up under the bed in the front of the trailer....no smell, no staining, no signs of water at all. The inside wall was also night and hard and strong.

So far.....i think everything is fine. I see no signs of water anywhere on the trailer, no signs of bad caulking or seals, no delamination of the fiberglass sides at all.....nothing that would indicate a problem except the wrinkly looking front rubber material.

What am I missing?? Should I still run from this??

I would not worry about the way the rubber front is put together, rubber roofing is not glued down either. Fiberglas siding and the rubber front will be easier to clean and wax than aluminum siding and will hold up to hail better as well.
