Without insulation condensation can become more of a problem. On a cool night moisture from you breathing or activities hits cool fiberglass and condensation forms on the inside walls. That said there have been some that just painted, have to do something otherwise your camper becomes a magic lantern show if lit from the inside at night.

I recall someone using those interlocking colored floor tiles used for children's play areas. Can not seem to locate that thread but it was something like these http://www.rubberflooringinc.com/interlocking-tile/foam/jumbo-soft-tile.html

Maybe someone will be able to recall enough about that thread to find it with a site search.

Welcome to FGRV Fay,
What part of NS are you from? We have some very knowledgeable members there.
Roger, I think it was AndrewGPSnut (sp?) that used the interlocking floor tiles.

Tom from TrilliumRV sells an ensolite replacement and T molding. I'd like to think you could get the clips from him as well.

I've got a tonneau cover that rolls up into a canister at the front of the box. It is made with aluminum slats that are covered with a sheet of foam backed vinyl. I'll have to check the brand, but I think it's this Retractable Tonneau Cover For Your Truck Bed
I'm not sure what they are using, but if it lasts a decade on the outside of my truck, it must surely hold up on the inside of a trailer. Only problem I see is that it is black, not sure if it can be found in other colours.

Thanks Roy
I'm from Marion bridge as the song goes out on the Mira on Cape Breton Island. I am still weighing all suggestions thus far no rush until spring. I appreciate all the advice. And look forward to ongoing conversations.

I'm not sure who is close to you Fay. I was initially thinking of Jim who is past Halifax from you. Check out the archives of the past NS rally and you might recognize someone close to you.
8TH ANNUAL MARITIME VINTAGE FIBERGLASS RALLY 07/19/ to 07/21/2013

I double checked the brand of my Tonneau. It was made by http://www.pace-edwards.com/

Keep in mind. In the early days of Boler production, condensation was apparently a problem.
If you have ever camped out in a trailer or a tent with condensation in it, that is not fun in my option.
Hence they chose to line the shell with Ensolite which helped stop that and gave a little protection from heat/cold transfer through the Fiberglass shall.
Mary picked up on the threads I was thinking of. There si still a similar product available like Ensolite.

And how is Roy in TO. We were thru there in 2011 on a cross Canada trip in our 17' Bigfoot. I haven't been on the forum for quite awhile.

2011 seems like such a long time ago. I have not been on the forum much over the last year or so. Life is looking OK at the moment. And you?

Ok now that I figured out how to post pics I will send as my renos progress. This was my boler when I purchased it. Looked great outside and inside was fine but being a little ADHD I have now stripped the inside completely and redid wiring, plumbing, and now making new doors for all cupboards.

Fay, I would definitely look into the idea of adding insulation and then covering the insulation as already mentioned here. It will vastly improve the quality of life inside the trailer!

until April.

Thank you for that I have spoken to some boat builders and they are going to help so it looks like I will be using insulation and hull liner. Again I would like to say how happy I am that I joined the information I have received and read is so informative and helpful. Thanks Again.
