Insulating a MH that has "veneered walls"?
One of the walls is water damaged/warped, so I pulled it out planning to repair it. In doing so I made a discovery: It was not a wall. The "wood" was thinner than a sheet of paper. behind the super thin (appears to be veneering!) "wall" is the bare aluminum of the outside wall!
My MH walls are not only not insulated, they are not even walls! All it is, is the outer body aluminum with a wallpaper thin wood veneer glued to it. There is no interior walls here at all! No wonder the cold blows right through it!
I'm a "winter camper" so I was planning to add insulation anyways, but I was planing to pull the walls out and add foam board between the inner wall and outer wall, than reattach the inner wall over it. But now I see that there is no inner wall at all, only the outer wall with wooden "wall paper" glued to it. How the heck do I insulate that?
I'm thinking, I should just take out the cabinets/furniture and glue foam board insulation right on top of the veneering, than built new walls on top of the foam board.
Well, I can figure out how to do the insulation installation part, but what do I do about putting up interior walls over the insulation? As I've no interior walls to put back up, I have to buy/build brand new interior walls. What do I use for that?
Oh, it's a 1975 Class C, btw, which I guess explains the lack of both walls and insulation.
