Under trailer insulation spray

Can anyone give me some insight on the optional insulation spray for under the trailer. Ordered new 5.0TA, and am unsure about that option. Has anyone had any problems with the durability of the spray, and does it also protect the frame from corrosion. Presently live in South Florida, but will be heading to the NW after retirement from Fire Department in 2 years. Camper completion in Oct. 2014. Thanks for any help.

I am also very interested in this option as I will be using the trailer in early spring and late fall. After you order, how much time do you have to change things?

I added the spray insulation to my 21, but only just took delivery so I can't comment on its durability or effectiveness yet.

We plan on camping sometimes when the nights drop to freezing so opted for all the available insulation. I cannot speak to it's longevity as we pick our trailer up next month.

As for changes, Escape notifies you 3 months before your completion date that you've got 2 weeks to submit your build sheet. Then about a month later you get a notice that your trailer will start production in 2 weeks. This is the last opportunity for changes. Once the trailer enters production, it may be too late to make changes, and if they are willing to make the changes, there will be an additional $200 change order fee every time a change is made to the options sheet.

Hope this helps.

We are planning to have insulation on our 17b due this Oct.

I've read various opinions on Forum threads so if u do some searches u should be able to find info. On top of extending the camping season and your camping range, I've read that the insulation also has soundproofing and then resale benefits.

Like all these options I suppose the anticipated end use and cost become the determining factors

I don't know exactly when the foam came on the scene, but I don't think it's been around long enough to know about it's longevity. On my stick trailer, the frame just started to show some surface rust on it last year, making it 7 years old at the time. I think the foams only been around for a few years. One would think it would keep water from getting to the frame. Of course with the foam in the way, you'd never see the rust anyway.

Thanks for all the help again. I did find a helpful thread on the subject and will probably have ETI spray the bottom. Can't hurt and will probably help, especially since I have never seen snow and we plan on doing all our camping In the great white north. I believe the pipes and tanks will greatly benefit when the cold creeps up out if the ground.

We have the spray insulation on our 17b, which is two years old in June. We haven't had any problems with it. We have been comfortable camping in temps as low as 20 F. Since we have never had a trailer without insulation, I can't compare. We will get insulation on our 21 to be picked up in Sept.

You might ask Tami about the spray insulation. It's the last thing they do to the trailer, it doesn't affect anything else, and so, I don't think there's an added fee for being late with the addition. We didn't get it, but were told by Tami that it can be added at any time, for the same cost as it would have been during the build. I also believe that the spray is only applied between the frame rails. If it covered the complete bottom, the drain holes would be covered. Someone who has the spray can verify weather or not this statement is true.

We had it added after factory roll out & before we picked it up.
I had decided against it on the initial build, but changed my mind after reading the Infrared Images thread - ( I need to stay away from here! )
