Question enclosed utility trailor repair

I want to completely redo a home-made enclosed utility trailor
my questions are:
#1 Do i use sheet metal ?
or
#2 Should i go for fibergass panels ?
which is better
Where can i get either one in sheets that are large enough without breaking the bank ?
ANY suggestions/help will be greatly appreciated

I prefer metal, but I might be kinda biased. If something slams in to fiber glass and breaks it you are pretty much stuck, but with metal you can bend it back or weld in a patch panel. I would not buy cheap material either. Go to your local metal supply store and buy quality stock, you will be happier in the long run.

I agree with Weldgod and vote for metal.

One suggestion for locating sheetmetal suppliers in your area is to use The Blue Book or by going to http://www.thebluebook.com and entering your state and sheetmetal into the search. I'm sure they'll have listings close to where you live.
