I believe it depends on the maker but nearly all I have seen are indeed structural in a big way. They connect the side walls to the floor structure which connects to the body to the frame. Additionally, the "fold" increases the tensile strength of the sidewalls in a way that no "flat" reinforcing will.

It's a 2001 Bluebird, and I believe it is just caulked to the rubber mat if I recall correctly. No plywood if that matters!

Still, pretty much anything you do to a bus, it will most likely be safer than an RV, right?

I'm actually surprised at how long some of them went before losing walls though
