Foam Board Insulation Installation!

Almost done the installation of the foam board insulation. MUCH easier to work with that the original fiberglass insulation that came out.

Going to create a "moisture barrier" by taping all of the seams and wood with strong silver ducting tape - will post pictures of that soon!

That's the nice thing about the Amerigo and this Ventura - straight lines! It's made framing it out and doing things like this insulating easier than what I can imagine your traditional "egg" shape would be

I really wonder about using expanded polystyrene in a trailer. Owens Corning recommends Foamular primarily for exterior applications, the only interior applications are basement and crawlspace walls. For basement interior walls, to meet code requires a minimum 15 minute thermal barrier, usually gypsum board.

I bring this up because some foam insulations when burned give off toxic fumes.

It's best to check.
