A few more pics for the record. Somehow I missed all the food and social photos - probably too busy stuffing my face.
First pic showing the Round top roof frame on the 2017 and newer Arctic Fox campers.
I think only the end sections of the camper are aluminum framed - the roof trusses are wood framed as far as can be seen in the photos.

Almost aircraft aluminum grade metal is used for the frame (The tour guide explained that the aluminum grade is one step lower than aircraft grade) They use this aluminum because it can hold a weld bead.
Wood is used inside the aluminum frame to provide solid backing for screws to bite into:

That's it - the real deal - evidence of some of the 500,000 people that rode and walked to Oregon - the "trail":
Lastly but not least, one of the interpretive centers many displays;
