This may help,there is a DIY airstream on YouTube and they are fully restoring a 70's airstream trailer. I think episode3-1 is painting the bathroom and 4-1 is painting the walls. It helped me out and he rolled the paint on. I hope this helps you.

Awesome stuff. I spent a little while going through your remodel pics. I'm doing the exact same thing to '76 27 ft Overlander. At about the same stage too. Great job- I'll be watching!

Hi Jennifer. I had a quick look at your blog. Looks like you are well on the way! The SW primer you used looks like a great product. I used their Corothane-mioaluminum as a primer, but it is an industrial product and not for the faint of heart! It worked great however. Glad to see there is a latex product now available.

I'm curious on the foil insulation you chose. Is it the double layer reflectix? I'm using that on a Wells Cargo trailer that I'm doing for a client, but not sure on R value for use in my current Airstream project. What product are you using, and what is its R value? I'll also second the question on the end caps... Did you use Larry B's technique? That's my plan...

mixter: Thanks!

redthies: We used one layer of reflective and one layer of recycle jean material.
The reflective is taped on the sides so there air pockets between it and the shell. Then we used 3m spray glue to attach the recycled jean to the reflective. Our R-Value is 13. Our trailer sits directly in the sun here in Georgia and with all the windows open we noticed that the trailer stays cool.

I am not sure who Larry B is here on the Airforum. However, I did read a lot of techniques posted here and pictures on google.

Larry's thread:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f46/...ed-102982.html

I will look into the denim. I've seen it before but never priced it out. R13 is very good given the space we have to work with. A standard 2x4 wall using fibreglass pink only sees R12.
