Undercarraiage spray foam

Does the undercarriage spray give any more protection or heat or cool effect with trailier. Doing a build. Thanks

Insulation protects you from heat and cold and noise. In addition to those 3 items the foam insulation also protects the undercarriage components.

I've been able to sleep in my insulated, doublepaned, and foamed E21 until 11 or noon on 100F days without A/C when parked in direct sunlight with no shade other than the awning. i had all the windows blocked off with reflectix to keep it dark inside.

in my casita under the same conditions, I would have been sweating by 9am.

Quick answer is YES.

It absorbed the damage from a rogue 2x4 and a road gator. Chewed up the foam a bit.

Logic would say that it also holds in the heat in the winter and the cool in the summer. Without stepping from a trailer without to one with the foam I can't say for sure. I can tell you the floor is still cold when it's in the 20's or 30's, rugs take care of that.

I'll believe John that it keeps out the heat.
Happy Motoring
