Thanks very much for your comments and ideas. While I was thinking of addressing the walls/ceiling, I think you are correct, Donna, that the floor should be a higher priority.
I did address the windows
last year. Our Scamp
is an older one with jalousy windows
, a wonderful idea for summer, but not for cold, winter use, since there is no way to adequately and effectively seal the individual glass slats. It is also a pre-rat fur model with the thin ensolite wall/ceiling treatment.
We bought a roll of Refletive bubble material with the foil on its surface from Home Depot and cut panels to fit each window. It does make the trailer kinda' dark inside but it made a major difference on those cold, winter nights.
Back to the wall/ceiling insulation -- I noted some discussion about adhesives, but nothing definitive. I had planned on using a contact cement. I have tried the water based, non-smelly type on another project and was quite disappointed with its performance.
To deal with the contact cement vapors I'm plannng to remove both front and rear windows
, place a couple of 20 inch box fans in one end blowing out. Once I'm ready to fit a section of foam, I'll don a mask that auto body men use when painting
cars and turn on the fans. Then I'll use a paint
roller to 'paint' the contact cement on the section of wall/ceiling.
Does this sound like a reasonable strategy?
