I ended up buying 17 sheets of 1/4" okume plywood for the walls. The plans call for 3/8" interior to suit.
I began thinking, this wood is very flexible, it bends real easily, is this not the best wood i can use for my trailer?
does anyone know if I can use okume plywood for the walls or has any informaiton on okume?

Chris,plywood seems very flexible(it is actually) but when used with framing or as a structure it is very strong.

If the B.O.M. calls for 3/8 though, 1/4 may not be strong enough
