Good point Roy - its hard to say why for sure - it may well have been that the company that Scamp was getting their Ensolite from stopped making it but if I am not mistaken other companies have continue to make it & still do today (it continued to be used in some boats) so it may be hard to say without asking Scamp why they stopped using the brand of Ensolite that they were when they switched to Rat Fur. It may have been a short supply or a cost factor (other manufacturers more costly?) or they may have decided the Rat Fur was a better product for insulation - which I think those who have been in an older Scamp that had only ensolite and not rat fur would agree

I would like to know who continues to make "Ensolite" with the black closed cell foam and outer vinyl layer that many of us are familiar with. My understanding is that many have been hunting down the material for a number of years. I have had an opportunity to see and touch Trillium RV's replacement and noticed that it is a light colour foam and did not see the outer "white vinyl" layer.

I think it might match closely when painted.

I apologize for taking this thread off topic.

Have no idea Roy who makes what they are using in boats but a check search turned this up which may be a good start if you are looking for some. Or these guys might be worth asking.

Both good finds Carol. I've been here about 6 years and you are the first to find anything like this that looks this positive. Well worthy of sending a sample to to see if they have something like the original.

LOL You might want to send them an email asking for more details first.
I know that not so long ago in marine catalogs such as Defender they had a closed cell headliner in them.... cant see it now only a thin 1/4" foam backed liner

Well, of course it is! Don't worry, I'm laughing WITH you, not at you, truly. Just so you know, we call Ensolite... Elephant skin

Something else to consider is a "Fantastic Fan". Other, larger rvs have em & they are in the ceiling & pull out the moisture, continually. U can really feel the difference when its running as opposed to when its not.

do not remove unless its to replace. first off,,,it prevents condensation. you haven't lived till you get rained on at 2 am inside a camper.

second , underneath is a foil backed bubble, isulation material that hellps you saty cool in hot weather and warm in cold.

third,,,, thats our beloved rat fur your playing with. it is sacred road rodent hide that can only be sacrificed by a fgrv goddess such as donna, in a sacred ritual known to few but performed over a flaming marshmallow on a stick.

it comes from the sacred road rodent of roadeshia. and must be preserved threw the carefull application of bacon grease. massaged in by the nimble fingers of a resis monkey. very hard to train them to do this.
