Campers are used for several months through the year then closed up for colder seasons, imagine leaving your home for the duration you leave your camper every year, it would be bound to face problems too wouldn’t it?

My first suggestion would be to go with stronger hardwood that is excellent for outdoor elements; campers have a tendency to face wet damp temperatures, or hot and humid ones.
