Been working on my 99 Nomad TT since March and finally put the last new piece of wood in. Major wood rot in the corner that spread very far from leaky window.
Anyway, all I have left is putting in the tongue and groove flooring, (had to special order it..small town) and, the insulation and foam board in.
I have a few questions..
1#The trailer has 1/4 inch Styrofoam board covered in paper and then the insulation behind this. I can not find 1/4" piece anywhere in this small town, I checked Lowes and Home depot and ask at another hardware store. All that is offered is 1/4" board that is "fanfolded". Its almost 50.00 and is about 50' in length...but I only need about 12ft of this stuff. :( Should I buy this or just go with the silver backed 1' board they also offer? I know there will be a difference, but I am fulltime and won't use that much.
#2 Insulation..again, I need very little, but these rolls are 30 ft in length and come in various R rated degrees. Which one should I choose? they are all covered in paper, but the insulation in my trailer is not. Doesn't it have to breath?
3# Should I buy a water proof sealer and paint on the boards,(joists and wall 2x2's to help extend the life and if so, what type?
I have asked these questions on various FB pages, but no one seems to ever answer.
I need advice Please!! I am so close to being done and am tired of of this little (big, ugly) project and need to wrap it up.
I am sure I will have more questions when I start putting it all back together, but don't want to overwhelm anyone. LOL
