    That is the question for a Landy camper.

    Seen many DIY fit outs on line, should I use the flight case type aluminium profiles and board or the light weight ply and T type edge trims. I ponder, any recommendations on robustness, ease of assembly or supplier. Difficulty no real issue as ex-joiner so complex woodwork no issue.

    I would use Ali. Won't suffer any damp like wood. Plus Ali easier to clean

    Anything further on this project? I tried both and went for 12mm ply in the end, with aluminium boxes integrated to provide storage.
