This comes from things like the high tensile steel frame rails, and the flange-head bolts used on the chassis. There are no rivets to work loose, and the flange-heads give greater clamping effort. All exposed panels, including the floor, are double-sided, zinc-coated steel to resist corrosion and provide greater durability.
