I will agree that the front closet really gets quite excessively warm. I think that is because the factory uses fiberglass to cover the curved areas since they can't use the foam board like in the walls. I think they need to develope a spray foam process to get a higher R-factor over the nose of the 5th wheel.


I have wondered why an RV company doesn't use the spray foam. I have it in my house and love it.

I understand that"cost"is always an issue when manufacturing / building any product. But, at the price these coaches already cost, another small cost adder to improve customer satisfaction might be well worth it.

I AGREE! I would happily pay more for a better product. I have a 2 story 4 bathroom, 4 bedroom home that used to be hard to cool. This past winter I gutted the house and put the spray foam between the studs. Today it got up to 101 here and this house is freezing. The bugs wont even crawl on it and if mice eat it they die. I LOVE THIS STUFF! I'd LOVE to have a trailer with this same spray in the walls
