I note the Displayshade version uses "lighter" 26 gauge steel, but weighs 68# while the commercial grade version uses heavier 20 gauge steel, but weighs only 64#. The heavier steel costs an extra $100, but weighs less. Am I missing something? That doe

Our Answer:

That is correct. The commercial grade steel is slightly lighter and much more sturdy. It has to do with the manufacturing process. The Caravan Aluma is commercial grade aluminum and weights only 49 pounds.
