I'm using Prodex as pictured in #8 of this thread. There was a thread by Zep (I don't know how to post previous threads like some people can) and he showed how he was doing it. If you use the search feature & put in "Prodex" a lot of information on it comes up. I have to remember that this is a trailer & not a life that I'm working on. If it doesn't last for 30 years, oh well, I'll be dead by then!

Kevin,If there is no insulation under the floor doesn't it negate the expense and R factor of Prodex on the skin and ceiling? Anyone ever try to drape Prodex or Refletix over the frame rails like they did with the pink stuff?

The foam would crush readily under the fasteners torque and cause the floor to have small dished dimples around the fasteners that would increase over time. IF someone would double or triple the number of fasteners and torque them all perfectly it might stop the deformation but its a live and vibrating environment where you want the floor locked down tighter than that.
