Question What is the best type framing wood for RV siding?

I am needing to know the best type of wood to use for the framework assembly used to support RV siding. The aluminum siding is, as I understand it, stapled to a wood framework. I suppose that standard 2x4 pine ripped to the proper size would be suitable. I imagine that 1 1/2 inch by 3/4 inch framing would be sufficient. Has anyone replaced this woodframework in a trailer or RV? Please advise me as I not sure of how much strength I need to support RV siding. Thanks, RV Dave

can you find pine , unless it rought sawed , it is hard to find in that size

i'm thinking they may use popular wood for frameing on rv , maybe wrong on this , but you might check it out , most demission lumber in that size is fur , and hard to keep straight

I would open it up and take out an existing bord bring it to your local lumber yard and see if thay can match it there is usuly at least 1 person in those places that is good at telling what kind it may be
