Check my latest post:
-AMERIQUE Laminate Flooring Underlayment Padding with Tape & Vapor Barrier 3-in-1 Heavy Foam 3 mm Thick, 200SQFT per Roll $37
- Marine waterproof carpet 200 sqft from Lowes - $150
-uxcell Car Sound Deadener Application Rolling Wheel Roller 5cm x 3.5cm $9
-3m 90 industrial spray adhesive $13/can 8 cans
I went with the underlayment padding because it is closed foam, provides the camper with a strong moisture/vapor barrier, mold and moisture protection, non allergenic, sound absorption, the bright blue look gives me some additional opacity to prevent light
from penetrating, it has anti-crush technology for excellent performance and long life. It is perfect for fiberglass adhesion, 3mm closed foam technology for sound reduction, and a tiny bit of insulation. I don't see winter camping very often so it wasn't a concern for me.
TIP: I found that you must apply a coat of adhesive on both the wall and the foam and then the foam and the carpet for the adhesion to be strong enough.
