Sure hope he comes back and can answer your question. I think it's one of the neatest insulation solutions I've seen for flat sided all molded towables.

Product evaluation review

I'd be very interested to know how the adhesive has held out over time and get some detailed pictures of the complex curves of corners in the ceiling.

Busy, busy, busy.

To put it in few words: If I was to do it again, I'd do it the same way - the tiles stud well to the test of time.
To put it in more words: The only issue I had was caused by the adhesive I used. In hot weather. middle portion of some of the tiles was sagging a bit. I'm guessing that the adhesive closer to the edges dried up faster than in the middle so, in scorching sun it was getting playable again. The tiles were no coming off but on some of them it was visible that they fully don't stick. A gentle push towards the wall and all was good again.
After first season or maybe into the middle of the second one, no more problems.
If you are going to do it, find a good adhesive.
In any case; we are very happy with the thermal and sound insulation we got by using these tiles. The colours did not fade so, it's always a real eye opener for everybody who takes a peek inside. After all, how many people can say about their 14 footer that they have green bedroom, red guest room and yellow kitchen?
I wasn't a hippie but somehow "Peace brother" comes to mind.

We installed these tiles in our boler floor in 2013 and it has been used a ton since.
We just cleaned the floor today and they still look great!

I've been looking into these for the floor in my 13' Scamp. They are now available in a wood look as well. I have a little old doggie who has a problem with incontinence. I'm thinking these would be easy to clean as well as give us all a soft surface on which to stand. Plus, the insulating factor would be great.

Wife put the same thing down as Fred and while winter camping in our Boler, only covered 100% of floor and cubby's too, it made a big differance and after camping trips just take out and sweep or let dry and be ready for next week.
