where can i get this stuff?
i have been looking all over the net and having little to no luck in finding it.
i have found some 1/8" ensolite for use by audio installers, but i would assume the ensolite that belongs on the inside of one of these trailers would be thicker than that.
how thisck is the material that comes on the boler/elmac/whatever?

my egg was stripped of anything on the walls when i bought it so i have no point of reference.
here is a link to the ensolite i have found thus far.
ensolite for audio enthusiasts.

i am also interested in the adhesives those of you that have successfully installed this stuff have used.
i have heard not to use the 3m 77 or 99 sprays. what works??

I can vouch for its availability from IR Foams, mentioned in that link. At one point in time I was considering a trailer with carpet/fur on the walls, but knew I'd want to replace it with Ensolite, so did a little pre-shopping (didn't buy that trailer in the end).

IR foams not only has Ensolite, but they have a boggling selection of it! I had them send me three samples, all in a 3/8" thickness. They are three different densities (more spongey to more firm). BTW, the original Ensolite is ~3/16" but I had figured that I might go for more insulative value if I re-did walls.

The Ensolite is black but can be painted.

Check out this thread, wherein Jenny talks about buying Ensolite at IR Foam and installing it and painting it as part of a total Boler makeover (see post #5 for starters):


Hope this helps,
