Ernie. Great work! I certainly couldn't see the seam for the slide. Love the way you did the wood into the tile. Looks excellent

Al, all the coaches I have done and all manufacturers none of them use marine grade.
Bluebird has 5/8 inch over steel
Newell has 1/2- but a vacubond which overall is 6+ inches thick.
Prevost- has 3/4 plywood
all the others either have OSB or- even Fleetwood and Winnebago uses plywood

The newer Lxis have thin piece of rubber that the walls sit on.
High end Monacos have that also
