Some people use the stuff road signs are made of which is a cellular plastic stuff with aluminum skin. It’s weatherproof and very light. Old signs are sometimes available. Iv’e seen a guy build a camper to be pulled by a motorcycle out of that stuff.

Alumalite is what it’s called. New 4×8 sheets are around $140, but I’ve seen used road signs for sale on Craige’s List much cheaper than that.
