My goal is to use a product that satisfies the structural requirements of my trailer's construction and is superior in it's resistance the particular environment my trailer will live in. If I (we) lived in Arizona this would be different than it is here in Wisconsin. Of course the cost is a factor, but not on the top of the list.
