Questions re interior of FGRV

I have a 13' WISP FGRV and I don't think it has anything coating the FG on the inside. In fact, I can see daylight through some thin areas. This is my first trailer of any sort, but I plan to make it pretty and work through whatever issues arise. The trailer itself is only a hull - no built-ins of any type. There is molded storage over each wheel well and I think that's it. l

Anyway, my question is, "Do I need to coat the interior with something and, if so, what?" I think the answer is probably yes, because there is no insulation at all and I am in Central Texas where 100+ deg. days are normal in the summer. It has an air conditioner fitted into a board where the back window was. (Not sounding good, is it?) But, it is as cute as can be and seems to be in pretty good shape. A friend checked it out and packed the wheel bearings for me.

This will be the first of MANY questions, I'm sure. I have been reading the forums and realize that a lot of you are experts in all of this. Hope to learn something along the way. Thanks.

From what I recall a Wisp is something much like a Boler or a 13' Scamp, aka the "Egg" shape.
Most of the others use a fabric or carpet like covering on the inside but don't expect a lot of insulation value. You might post where you live in Texas and owners of other Eggs nearby can let you look at their interiors for some ideas.
Good Luckl

I would suggest you talk to Scamp Trailers. They use two layers of a reflex type of insulation against the fiberglass. That's covered with a marine head liner material. The provides great light blockage, noise insulation, and weather insulation. The fabric is kind of fuzzy and I think it has a nice feeling to it. Scamp can provide what you need including adhesive to glue to inside of the shell.
