Now you know you will never be able to hold on to any trailer for 20 years!

Hello Everyone,

We would like to take a moment to clarify a couple of things regarding the Extra Insulation with Thermal Window Option.

If you order a trailer with the Standard Insulation Package it comes with the headliner material glued directly to the fiberglass shell. We will then cover any exposed or visible areas under the benches with the Reflectix Insulation.

If you add the Extra Insulation option, Reflectix Insulation then completely covers the interior of the trailer (except the floor). However, the 21' Escape and the NEW Escape 5.0 Tandem Axle Fifth Wheel, we do not line the ceiling with Reflectix, we use a honeycomb material in the fiberglass process which strengthens the roof and provides additional insulation.

During the last 5-6 months we have been changing the method of insulation throughout the trailer including:
- behind the bathroom
- wheel wells
- exterior door

This is why you are seeing the differences between your trailers. If you have ordered a trailer with the Extra Insulation but do not see it in your trailer, you may have to peel the headliner back slightly.

Thank you,

Reace

I think this is a significant advancement - using cored composite construction. Reace, can you tell us how thick the honeycomb core material is, and do you have an idea how much insulation value you are expecting from it?

Only Reace can provide his actual reason, but a guess would be that the greater width of these models means that too much fiberglass thickness would be required to get sufficient strength without the use of a core material.

Question: Does the foam insulation keep out the critters ?
