I believe you actually could mistake aluminum for wood.
Perhaps my confusion comes from the fact that you talk about framing and then say you're talking about replacing plywood and then you're back to wood framing after telling me it's all aluminum?

Just trying to point out that altho DRVs have an all-aluminum 'superstructure' this does not preclude that there aren't some wooden sections. And, you're right, never heard of plywood used for 'framing' but lots used for covering framing. Was being a little facetious in talking about the 'frame' of my shower skylight, but it in fact has left-to-right aluminum truss components, and front-to-rear wooden components, and to 're-frame' the skylight necessitated the use of 'wood.'

They use wood for backing. Our RV being built. You can see the wood backing up high for the awning mounts.
