Since starting the repairs on the 1700 for the bathroom floor and all that that has entailed. I found some FRP panels at Loews for extremely cheap price including the trim. I decided to redo the shower as well while I am at it. The question is this, Has anyone ever worked with this material before? What is the best way to cut it? Dose it chip while cutting with a skill saw?

The entry door exterior and interior skins on your trailer is FRP as well.

I haven't found it to chip with a table saw, it cuts more like plastic despite the fiberglass in it. You can also use a router on it and route a straight line or flatten out an edge if you wanted.

Many car washes use the same panel on their interior walls, so it's a great product for wet environments. Just make sure to seal the corners sufficiently. Personally I'd put some sort of angle channel in on each corner before installing the plastic, then silicone the corners when you're done. That way, if water does seep into the corner, it would drain down the channel and in the shower pan lip.

Yes, as was said, it cuts well. No special tools needed. maybe a little less forgiving of bad saw technique, but easy to work with. Dulls tools fast.
