Many folks stopped by to see what I was doing outside on the picnic table. I explained that I was adding insulation even though my trailer was insulated better than any I knew of that were being built. Most looked at me like I had three or four heads on my shoulders. The insulation that I add to my Rvs has contributed a lot to the comfort level in the trailer by eliminating hot or cold spots. Additionally when I lived in brix and stix houses I ran numerous analyses that showed that insulation at twice what is in my trailer was cost justifiable in less than 2 years.
I do not know what the payout is on my trailer, but the total cost is under $50 to add r7 to every where that does not cause a loss of storage. By finish of tomorrows effort I will have three 4x8 sheets of 3/4" insulation added to the trailer. It is 10 pm at night now and I can already tell that a cold spot near the bed is gone. This will help a lot when I get back out into the desert later this spring.
Tomorrow should finish out the adding of insulation. It would be nice to be a contortionist when doing this kind of work. The next step is touching up the paint to make the interior of the cabinets nice to view when the doors are opened.
An item I am still thinking about is putting shade screens of white painted plywood mounted about 2 or 3 inches above the roof like a solar panel to help fight off the hot sun during the summer months of the year. Since I do not plan to be in the snow country again for any large amount of time, a little extra shade may be good. Any suggestions???? All this work is getting in the way of having tooooo much fun.
