Your heat loss through the floor is probably not real bad, the biggest problem is that it is so darn cold when the temps are low.

I opted out of the spray foam option for a couple reasons, wanting to do work under the trailer, cost (though this was not a big deal), and I don't care for the looks. I have since found that just using a mat on the floor makes a world of difference.

What I do plan to do when I have the time (and who knows when that will ever be) is to adhere 2" rigid to the shell where it is open, leaving a bit of a gap around the edge and protrusions and fill this in with a good spray foam.

We live in Texas so most of our camping in done in the south and if we want cooler weather we go north in the summer months, so for us a well insulated trailer is probably not so much our first choice in trailers. Now I can see where those who camp in the north year around would be very interested in an all weather trailer and would probably be one of there first requirements in purchasing the correct trailer for them. We have a Casita at this time and are looking forward to a larger fiberglass trailer which we have on order at this time and set to pickup in July. One hint is that it is an all weather trailer, is it the Escape, Bigfoot, or the Oliver? Any of these trailers would work well for us as they would for most campers in all weather conditions, but since we could only pick one, we went with the _.
