Insulating Casita Door

I have a 96 Casita Spirit. In this model, the door is curved which adds some challenges. A previous owner removed the carpet and put in cork, which obviously did not work well since it just soaked up the moisture. I am replacing it with a vinyl that has a 1/2 pad similar to Casita carpet but is a bit easier to install, cheaper and Iím hoping will be easier to clean and not absorb smells. But the door is the challenge. Because it is rounded and not a flat surface the vinyl will not go on it well, go around the handle or look right at the edges. Iím open to using a different material but am hoping someone has a suggestion on how to approach this. Iíve attached pics to show the door and the vinyl. Thank you in advance!

door insulation

I would use a good 1/2" foam
Insulation like they use under vinyl insulation on homes. It will conform to the door curvature. I would cut all of the places it needs to fit around, cover it on the side that faces out with a good washable vinyl(self adhesive or applied with a good adhesive), then glue it to the door with a good adhesive and add; some screws for added holding power if there is a place to do so.

I come from a marine background and we had a boat door that was curved and in Fl heat nothing stuck. Jump ahead 40 years they have a flooring foam that you stick down to the boat floor. Do a search for ď Boat Flooring EVA Foam Decking Sheet ď. Amazon. Has different ones BUT DONíT CHEEP OUT.
The glues donít stick (3-M tape best ) do a search online there are companies that will custom cut the materials to fit a pattern. Where are you located Iím in Fl and we have quite a few places that do this. Hereís a link to one just for info. They can give you a quote by making a pattern for them to copy. Most have a kit they send out for you to do. By any chance can you remove the door if so you could just bring it to them. They use these as coming panels on boats so I know they stick vertical.
Just some food for thought. Mrrobalo
