Roger, what is the construction of the Scamp? Do you think it has better insulation, or just because it's fiberglass, or because it's white (or all three together) that make the big difference?

I think a couple of things are coming into play here, one being the small size of the Scamp IIRC the largest they make is 19'. The other being the fiberglass construction..not a particularly good conductor of heat. FWIW my "vintage" Armstrong AC will keep my unit tolerable at 95 degrees in direct sunlight...when and if it finally dies it will get replaced with a higher btu and more efficient the meantime, I seek out camping spaces in the shade.

Aluminum is a great heat conductor. The ribs, formers or whatever they are called conduct the heat to the inner skins of the trailer. Feel around these areas and you will notice a drastic temperature change on the inner skin. I'm searching for a suitable insulating tape before reskinning the interior of one of our trailers. Any suggestions?
