Interior walls

Hello to the house,
We are looking for suggestions to redo and insulate the interior wall of our play pac. Suggestions and pics would be awesome.
Thanks so much,
Heather and Ernie

Congratulations on your new PlayPac. I see you have had 45 views of this post but no answers as yet! So I guess I will be the first.

I don't have a Play Pac but I have seen where others have renovated them. I just did a google search for you and these two threads came up.

Take a look here and here

I would love to see your progress as I really like the PlayPac's and I think they would be pretty easy to renovate compared to the curved walls of a Boler or the like.

Keep us posted!

I saw in another thread someone used those foam puzzle piece tiles and glued them to the walls for insulation. They make them in colors or grey. I used them to line my bed area, partially for some bed base and partially to insulate the outer wall from the foam to prevent condensation from getting into the foam.

Thanks CliveAlive! There certainly are more options than I suspected.

You can always get authentic Rat Fur from Scamp too.
I really liked it when I had one.

Panoz77, I saw that too, but I would like to paint it and that doesnt seem to paint well. I am looking into something called Lizardskin that another owner talked about!

The foam tiles come in a multitude of colors. I think they would provide a great deal of insulation factor if that is your main concern, if you just want a wall covering then your options are far larger.

I am leaning towards the reflectix and then something over the top, maybe the lizardskin, since it can be painted.

I understand but it is not really Carpet,it is a Marine Headliner material.
Having had both Scamp and Casita I prefer the Scamp Rat Fur to the Casita plain old carpet by far.

It is worth trying to see somewhere if you can?

All of the no wall covering units I have been in just don't feel as Cozy to me.

Lizardskin will cost you about $1,000 and requires special spray equipment to apply. Oliver used it between the hulls and it is a VERY good, if expensive insulation. You wouldn't need the reflex however. Lizardskin IS the insulation.

Here's a link to the colorful foam tiles James mentioned: Guess what I'm using for insulation!

I make a product clone of Lizardskin that coats WAY less than the "genuine article". I use it in cars as an accoustic/temperature insulation - highly effective!

AND - it applies with a roller or brush. very thick consistency, not difficult to apply, but physically tiring
