I looked at large fifth-wheel travel trailers almost a decade ago that had this type of foam insulation; however, it is still not common here and probably very uncommon in less northern areas.

I doubt the foam on an Escape would weigh 200 pounds, as it would need to be a foot thick... but I don't know the actual weight.


Could a moderator or administrator move this topic to a more suitable location in the forum?

I think when it was first offered, Reace guesstimated the spray foam insulation added 70 pounds or so... That might have included the heat pads.

Reading all of these posts just gives us a better excuse to head to Chilliwack this fall. Then if we mess up the order, there is no one to blame but ourselves.

Talking People always associate insulation with winter....

camping, but it is also incredibly effective in Hot Weather. For me , both insulation packages are on my working build sheet for a 19ft Escape. Also the thermal window/tint helps. Remember, your home away from home will quiet also.

One of my main concerns on the Escape trailer was how well the under trailer foam insulation would hold up to road debris, gravel, etc. We were at ETI and Reace took me out back to show me a trailer that had this option. I was happy to see that the insulation was much harder than I had anticipated. I don't see this being a problem or concern anymore. Loren

We're Californians too and have camped down to 26 or so at night in our 19. Wasn't a problem and I'm passing on this on our 21. No plans to do any serious cold weather camping, that's a good time to stay home and go to the beach!

Yes, a value of 200 pounds was given, but then it was explained why this would not be likely:

... and then the number from Reace was provided:

Is that close enough?

It seems similar to that Great Stuff crack filler you can buy in a can at Lowe's or Home Depot.

It would surprise me if the whole amount on our 21 weighs more than 20 pounds.
