Dow Safetouch insulation

Anyone out there use this product for their trailer? It is a formaldehyde free, itch free polyester "green" insulation that you can work with bare hands with. We have put reflectix against the outer shell and splitting the r-13 safetouch product to fill the rest of the space. It is on clearance right now at Lowe's due to poor sales but it appears to be an awesome product. It is now cheaper than the "pink" insulation (originally much more expensive) so we are taking the plunge and using it. Any thoughts out there?

Sounds interesting . . . don't have any experience with it, sorry.

I did just notice (from looking at your "blog") that our Tradewinds are only 8 digits apart. Ours is 240301T, so just a little older, and it has (or had) the Twin Layout. We had lots of hidden damage as well but thankfully our frame only had minor problems - not nearly like what you have found w/yours. Looks like Colin is doing excellent work, we applaud you for saving this one . . .

Good Luck.

stuff is fun..it is like working with the inside stuffing of a pillow... started with gloves but ended up using bare hands. I hope it works as well as the traditional insulation because it is great to work with! It is hard to split but I can not compare it to the pink stuff so I do not know if that is difficult as well.

Looks like good stuff! I used some Roxul in a few areas of my Ambassador. It is a treat to work with insulation and not be itchy!
