i have begun the remodel of my boler, and am getting ready to insulate it.
i read the faq, and realize "ensolite" is the preferred method of insulating these things.

i have also been looking for other more available solutions, and perhaps less expensive options as well.
here are a couple of similar closed cell foams offered on the net, and i was wondering if anyone was familiar with them for this aplication.

there is the VolaraŽ foam which seems like an option.
there is also
Ethafoam
which seems to be on quite a sale at this place.

then there is this wholesaler. http://www.mcfoam.com/list.html but it seems he likes to sell huge quantaties of the stuff.
any input on this?

also, are there antguides on how to cut the foam (shapes) for the best fit inside the boler, or similar shaped trailer?
some detailed photos of stock interiors would be nice. http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/st...lt/biggrin.gif

Scamp uses an aluminumized bubble material (two thicknesses) covered with carpet. This works well with radient heating and isn't too bad down to the mid 20's based on our experience. I've monitored the heating of our Scamp during the morning... the remote in the Scamp and the receiver in my garage... the trailer is generally 5-10 degrees slower to warm.

Try "search" on insulation as we had quite a discussion a while back. The bubble foil seemed to be a reasonable possibility and it's readily available at Lowes or Home Depot.

Here's a really good discussion about Reflextix, carpet, etc. with some great pictures:
