Had you considered other treatments, or is this the standard for curvy fiberglass campers? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you. Your camper is turning out really nice. I'm getting some really nice ideas from your build.
Generally speaking, I'd avoid reflectix in favor of some sort of closed-cell foam. Probably EPDM or PVC based, since HDPE is a pain to stick to things. The RV makers like Scamp like to claim that it's R-6, but that's only when it's paired with a correctly-sized air gap on the "hot" side. Sandwiched between layers in a wall, it's maybe R-0.6.

Beautiful work Eric.
So many people would have written this trail off as too far gone. It is fantastic to see that you have saved it and made it into a gem!

the windows

Wow. Well done. Wondering about your windows and if you are replacing any window seals if using the original windows. I have searched the threads on the forums and only found 1 post about the seals. I have not been able to find most of them, even at vintage trailer. It would be great if you could let me know if you find any. There aren't as many 17' restorations so thanks in advance.

I got my seals from Pellandent. I ordered 60 feet of H009-344 - 1/8" glass glazing bead.
