From other things I've seen, ensolite is not cheap. Here is a source my husband found that we might order from to replace our Boler interior:

Looks like the right thickness and a good replacement option. Not too bad of a price either!

Hope this helps others that are thinking of redoing their inside too.... I'll report back if we purchase it and how satisfied we are with it.

Can you paint it? If so, with what?

Yes, this is the only kind of ensolite that people have been able to find (not the vinyl coated kind). They report that you can prime and paint it with latex paint, no problems (it is a closed cell foam).

Great! We've been looking for this for a few months. I'm going to get a couple yards to use to patch some problem areas in my Trillium. I'll post my results.
