Binkers, your unit is not made of Alclad. What is offered currently will match perfectly.
If alclad is stretched, it will tear.
All segments are a softer material than the side sheets.
I really don't know what material it is, but it is softer, lending itself to being stretched.
Good example is when a coach receives hail damage.
The side sheets, since they are alclad, which is tempered stress relieved, recover from moderate hail damage simply by being exposed to the sun.
On the other hand, hail dents never disappear from any segments, since they are a different material.
I went through that thousands of times when I was with Caravanner insurance company.
