Replacing Paneling, Part Two
We work on our projects in little spurts, depending on warm weather and our availability. So today we finished the paneling project.
I needed to buy more insulation for the wall on the back side, because the insulation came off with the old paneling. So I headed to Lowe's to pick up what I thought would be a can of spray foam insulation. After talking to a Lowe's associate (who also has an RV and was very helpful), he suggested a sheet of R-value styrofoam insulation, in addition to a can of minimally expanding spray foam to seal the edges. So I took his advice. But one problem...
How in the world did I get all the way through the checkout line and out to the parking lot, forgetting that there was no way that was going to fit that in my car?! My mind must have been somewhere else entirely...
So, I called my mom, who graciously brought her minivan to the Lowe's parking lot to rescue me. Meanwhile, I got a lot of strange looks, leaning against my car with the doors and trunk open, with this huge-ass sheet of styrofoam on a cart next to me. A young Lowe's associate came over to me while he was collecting carts and asked if I needed help. I politely told him, no - I just forgot what vehicle I was driving and someone was coming with a van.
I'm sure he had a good laugh.
So my mom came to my rescue...
I worked till I ran out of daylight, which also took with it the warmth of the day.
So with that, I called it a day. Back to watching the forecast for the next warm day...

It always pays to think outside the square box when doing things and you shall be amazed at what you can come up with as far as alternatives go. I'm currently building my own 6x4 trailer camper with slide out sides so you have the entire trailer base as your floor space to move about on.
