It is both quality of construction materials and innovative engineering techniques that have set the Charleston apart from the competition. Charleston’s extraordinary amount of strong, tubular steel is integrated with the chassis to form the basis of our uni-body, “steel cage” construction. With this ultra-strength steel skeleton as a foundation, Charleston’s engineers have utilized superior vacuum-bond lamination processes that make our floor, sidewall and roof systems the strongest, most durable in the industry. By taking the time to integrate each structural component with both the chassis and each other, we are drastically improving the Charlestons’s ability to take the wear and tear of road travel. This means that each Charleston is built to stand the test of time – from the inside out! 18 VACUUM-BOND LAMINATED ROOF SYSTEM 1. One-Piece Molded Fiberglass Crowned Roof (Seamless) 2.
