For insulation: Reflectix glued to the ceiling (and the entire shell interior) under the marine carpeting on the walls

4 ft. x 25 ft. Double Reflective Insulation-BP48025 at The Home Depot

Tom,
I covered it with marine-grade carpeting. Flexible and moisture resistant. I'd do the seams differently if I had it to do-over, but here are pics of the interior --- just after putting in the reflectix, and then just after the wall covering. The rest was finished later.

Thx Tom! When we bought the Boler, it didn't have anything insulating it. Not that reflectix has a large insulation value - but seems to help keep it a bit cooler in the summer, and just a bit warmer in the late fall (no winter camping for us!) I'd recommend it.

Quieter too I bet. Every little bit of insulation helps with condensation too during cooler/colder camping.

Yes Donna, good point! The condensation factor seems to be the biggest positive impact in our case. Before, the old carpeting that was on the walls was always damp (midwest humidity) - now it's probably pooling on the floor after dripping down inside the reflectix?!?! Hmmm. That is an interesting question - I wonder where it DOES pool?!

Anybody?

If it doesn't evaporate, all liquid travels down... to the floor. A major reason for floor rot! No necessarily because of condensation, but vent/window leaks, etc. It's a maintenance issue.
