This is great to know about Scamp's insulation! It's not like I'm going to live in the thing, all winter or anything, I just would like to be able to use it fairly comfortably a half dozen times or so, in Minnesota winters. Based on all the response here I believe I will keep my options open to single wall campers too and not just limit myself to a double wall/insulated camper. I have seen some examples here of people coping Scamps insulation technique and it is good to know I could in the same manner to whatever trailer I end up with, if needed.
Thank you everyone for all the great input. I really do appreciate it!
Was just cruising through older posts and found this slightly dated post of a subject that is exactly the one that caused us to make our decision when buying a new TT.
I guess that the frames and insulation were major factors in this decision process.
Here is a link to a photo album where a couple of different frame types may be compared. They are a commonly used steel frame type and an aluminum frame being used by Oliver
, made in Tennessee.
This link is to an online album of a Oliver
being made to one owners specifications. I find it particularly intresting that they will install a solar panel
for the new owner. Note the high tech "lizzard skin" insulation being used on both inner and outer shells. This link is also a pretty good look at how the Oliver is made, as it progresses along:
EDIT to add note: this second link has two pages of photos and shows the fiberglass molds that are being used, as well as the shells before and after the cut outs are made.
