The ensolite is not just a wall covering. It insulates the shell to minimize condensation. Replacing it is a major undertaking. I would clean it up and reattach where needed. Some folks have painted it. Lots of posts on ensolite. Search around. Raz

Just to second Raz, ensolite is very desirable and most people will do whatever they can to save it!

I don't recommend it. Have a look at my restoration thread to see what is possible with ensolite. You should not have to worry about the seam tape since the T molding is now available if you want to replace it.

'Ensolite'

IIn my 1980 Trillium Jubilee the inner walls are covered with an approximately 1/4" thick black rubber foam with a facing that I think is vinyl ( it's been painted ).

Is this the 'Ensolite' that I have seen referenced in some of the replies in this thread. If so, does any one know if it is still available and where ? I am renoing this trailer and need to patch the insulation in a few places.


Thanks for any help available ........ Peter

The black foam covered by vinyl is Ensolite. I have read that it was developed for use in air craft. A close facsimile is available from TrilliumRV at trilliumrv.com. The colour and texture do not seem to be a perfect match, but close.
