I've considered spray foam insulation for the bottom of my scamp, but once it's sealed in, there's no getting in to do any maintenance on the underside of the rig.

I also expect it would be pretty expensive to get it sprayed. Once they mix up a batch of the stuff, it must be used.

We did use the Lizard skin product but have stopped for the points made above. At this time we are continuing to use 3M thinsulate that we used in the last units.

Air flows under a trailer too, so I would think that the other issue with using spray foam on the bottom of a trailer is that it would become an aerodynamic nightmare.

I can't imagine that coming into play at all. Heck, cars would get better mileage if they looked like a golf ball.

I think the bottom of most trailers (especially those with underfloor tanks and plumbing) already is an aerodynamic nightmare. Filling in some of the gaps with foam might even help! Just my impression...

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Looked into the Prodex product and have it on order to check it out. That might just be the winning ticket. Thanks for the information.

Robert, thank you for stopping by and checking in. We know Oliver builds stellar units and further know you're looking into the best insulation for those units.

It will be interesting to find out what the final decision is

BUT, I just need to ask... why did you stop (or look to stop) using LizardSkin?

Make your own aerogel

In my unending search, I ran across this material.
Industry can get it in sheets. This site is more of
a science project type place.

aerogel in five gallon bucket only runs around $300 @ lb.

Aerogel : United Nuclear , Scientific Equipment & Supplies

Hey Donna,
We stopped because it was more a barrier than an insulator. If you go to our Facebook page I have some new pictures using the Prodex product Carl found.
Thanks Carl!
