Insulating the Benches

Bought a roll of reflectix insulation and a can of spray adhesive at the Depot and decided to put insulation on the fiberglass shell that didn't have any liner or insulation under all the benches in the trailer.

    

 

Cost:

16"x25' roll of Reflectix Insulation: $17

Can of 3M spray adhesive: $4

Project Hours: 1

Smile on 30 degree nights: Priceless

 

This is an easy project to do with minimal investment in time or labor.  I'll report back after Quartzsite gathering if it made a noticeable difference.

Reflectix

Reflectix is great stuff. I need to make some for the windows to keep summer heat out....... I just make it about 1/4" bigger all around and just wedge it in place. had it on my last trailer and liked it as it really helped the air conditioner in the summer.

   Does your escape have double pane windows?

Insulation Update

After two trips and some fairly cold nights in the Egg, this is one of the best bang for the buck mods that one can do.  Very noticeable difference in the draftiness and cold emanating from under the bunks.
