new interior wall fabric for our 13' Boler

I'm getting ready to order the new covering for my Boler walls. I'm sure somebody has posted the calculations for how many sq feet or yards to cover, but I can't find it. Any help?

Also, I'll use reflectix as my insulation layer... do you put this inside the closet/under the seats, etc as well? The PO had taken out all of the ensolite, so I can't really tell what would have been standard. Or, what is recommended, for that matter!

Luke,

I recently received my Casita '90 after a complete re-do. Check it out. The 1990 Casita Re-do, February 13-16th, 2011. The business that insulated the interior put reflectix on the interior walls, and on the outside of the bath wall , which faces the interior of the rv. The front closet was the only area where the carpet was retained as the interior. They did a very good job. Lots of photos on this website. Mona

Luke, The Ensolite is not behind the benches or the lower cabinet, it is behind the upper cabinet and I think it's in the closet too.

The more insulation, the easier to heat and cool. I also added plastic-wrapped fiberglass insulation in the bench seats against the outside walls.

I agree with Darnelle. Sleeping on a cold bed isn't much fun in the Spring/Fall. Besides, you wouldn't want your canned food to freeze would you.... or boil-in-the-can

okay! so in short, insulate all outside surfaces!

and a follow-up - anybody have an idea of how many yards of fabric it took for a 13 footer?

If the existing rat fur wall covering is not sagging, can I glue on Reflectix over it and than a vinyl headliner material to the reflectix?

Simple question: Do I need to remove the original Rat Fur if it is holding fine?

Our later model Boler has a type of carpeting on the walls. It's warm in cool weather, doesn't sweat and insulates reasonably in hot temperatures. We use a shop vac to clean it once a year and a carpet spot remover takes care of small stains. Just another option to think about.

When I went to the Scamp factory, they said it takes 25 yards of rat fur to cover the inside of a 13 footer

any idea who makes this or where it can be purchased? and does it have an insulated backing of some sort, as a part of it? it looks a little less fuzzy, than the scamp rat furr!

It was used in Bolers manufactured at the Midhurst factory from about '81 until about '87. It doesn't have a foam backing but is more like a heavy upholstry fabric.

Check out car headliner material. You can get it for marine applications and it's mold resistant, comes in a dearth of colors too! You'd still want some sort of insulation, whether the old ensolite or reflex-type.
