I think it is important to verify exactly what insulation you are getting. My 2010 is the same as Techfan's 2013. There is no reflectex behind the foam in the raised part of the roof. And, surprisingly to me there is no insulation of any kind around the plastic bathroom/shower enclosure. There is reflectex in the storage compartments.

Maybe these areas are now treated differently, but it should be checked. I would definitely specify some insulation around the bathroom.

That being said, I don't have a complaint about the insulation quality of the basic living area (excluding the bathroom) and I think the thermopane windows are a good addition for insulation and noise reduction. The foam backed vinyl headliner is a quality job.

Is not the bathroom wall the bare outer fiberglass shell? If so I can see the issue, but I can't see a remedy.

The bathroom is a plastic module that is set into the camper in one piece. There is space between it and the fiberglass shell.

Actually, the bathroom module is two pieces. You can see where it's seamed in most bathroom pics. Somewhere here on the forums, is a group of pictures taken during production and it shows the two piece module sitting inside. Escape puts the module inside before they fiberglass the two halves of the trailer together because the bathroom module won't fit through the door.

As far as insulation, here's a picture during construction from paulw. There's lots of these kinds of pictures available here on the forums.

I remember having to tighten my a/c down and I had to remove the interior shroud, I could see wood shims and reflectix edges around the hole from inside. This was on a 2012 19'

I can also see it sticking out in mine where there is a gap inside the rear cabinet.

Jim - I thought that in 2010 I was told that the standard insulation is the foam backed vinyl and that relectix is applied everywhere possible as part of the extra package. Did they make a change and start putting reflecix in now where you describe as part of standard?

We may need to ask Escape to clear up our questions.
