Siding Repair

My Parents own a 5th wheel, not sure what brand. The smooth siding is starting to delaminate. Ive told my Dad what a great bunch of helpful and informative people are on this site, so he wanted me to ask you all a ?. Where can he purchase the needed supplies (new siding) to make the repairs to his camper?

Thanks for your help and time!

I'm not sure where you could buy filon sheets. Filon sided Sunlines were built by simply hanging the sheets of filon on the studs and gluing them on. Many manufacturers, especially in more recent years, vacuum bond the walls together on a table- basically they take aluminum framing, fill it with foam insulation, put gobs of glue on the back side of both the inside luan panel and the filon sheet, and then suck it all together with the vacuum table.

While the filon siding does delam, more often I think it does it from water getting behind, which can mean even bigger problems.
