Exclamation Ensolite and T-Molding available June 11, 2012

Tom from TrilliumRV has recently updated his website indicating that he will have replacements for the original Ensolite and T-moldings available to ship as of June 11, 2012.

Wall Covering / T-Molding | Trillium RV



He has included a picture of the old and new Ensolite along with the new T-molding so you can see what you are getting. He does not indicate what width the Ensolite replacement comes in.

This should make a lot of Trillium and boler owners happy for years to come!
Not to mention early Acorn, Scamp, Eco, Love Bug, Perris Pacer, Casita owners and the boler prodigy. I should mention Trillium offshoots as well, including Surfside and ???

Ensolite and T-molding

Is the T-molding to use with the ensolite, or is it the molding that is used around a table edge?

Some of the trailers with ensolite use the vinyl t-molding which fits into a clip type thing glued to the body.

Some people without the clips have used latex caulking to hold the molding in place. Most without the t-molding just use an adhesive foam tape like in their originals. Some just fill the seams with latex caulking and paint.

Hey Roy;

This is great news. I was going to go an alternative route to insulate my Boler. Thanks for posting it.

That may seem high to you, but if your trailer has a bad section of elephant hide, a $150 fix seems cheep to me. I wonder if it is as shape-able as the original stuff.

I have seen the rat fur. This stuff is what I want on my walls.

In my case have been considering removal of couch and building in bench seats with a small dinette table but I wanted to have a swing down dinette table like the main one. So I still have a bench seat/bed if desired.

That probably means replacing some hide when I tab in the wood to attach the table support hinges. Have been waiting for this to become available.

How much to do a whole trailer?? at 15 bucks a foot I might as well buy a vintage airstream

To ball park it. It works out to $3.16 a square foot. If you totally covered all 4 walls and ceiling of a 13' trailer you would need about 250 square feet. Take off your windows, cabinets, benches etc. You might be looking at 200 square feet.

My rough estimate would be $600 -$650 to do a whole trailer. How does that compare to prepping and painting the outside? I've got an idea what it costs to restore the gelcoat and it is may more times than that.

I'd have to check receipts, but I think I probably spent $100 on flooring. The price of doing a whole trailer in ensolite all of sudden does not look all that bad.

Oops forgot to add the T moulding if thats the way you want to do it. But you could go with just the seam tape like some of the original bolers.

Has anybody priced out the cost of doing a whole trailer in reflectix and rat fur?

I came across this headliner for marine and RV applications. Cheaper than ensolite and a variety of colors. Polyester laminated to 1/4 inch foam backing.

I just ordered some vinyl strips for my trailer from Tom and it installed beautifully. He also has the new female tracks if those are needed as well. I used some of that around the windows where I had replaced the wood. I ended up with 30 ft of extra material from my order that cost $108 so I guess I used 50 ft since it is sold as 80ft for the trailer. I guess I should have measured...oh well it looks great. If anyone wants my old stuff its all yours, I'm going to keep the left over new stuff for reserve. I live in vancouver. I also completely restored my 1976 Trillium from inside to out and used the sticker collection he has and it turned out great. I found him super easy to deal with. Hope this helps.

Hi I'm stripping my ensolite and wonder if the stuff from JT's Top Shop will be suitable for replacing the ensolite. Will it be good insulation?
