I'm still trying to locate a source for the skins. I plan to use the standard RV type aluminum corrugated panels with the interlocking edges. There is a source near me just outside Atlanta and another on the west coast. I'm trying to figure the best price comparing shipping to picking it up myself. The metal skins will be on the sides and ends and I plan to use EPDM for the roof. I am currently paneling the inside and outside with the 5 mm Revolution plywood. I used that on the portable wall panels on my last project and it is some good stuff. It's primered on one side and very easy to work.


I don't know how current this article is, but it lists some sources for vintage RV aluminum siding. It also has a tutorial for DIY aluminum siding using coil stock:

Thanks, Tom. I'm researching three of the companies on that list. I want to keep the corrugated look similar to what came on the original pop-up and it gets a little complicated with the numerous sizes, patterns, and types of connectors. Their web sites aren't really clear on some of those features so I'm having to talk directly to their sales reps to figure it all out. I hope to order something soon since all my outside work depends on the sheet metal.
