Question about insulation

Can someone tell me if the foil/foam/foil insulation in a 1977 excella is asbestos? Also what similar insulation is available to purchase. We need more at every opening. We are going to live in it and it is missing most of it. All the access doors are drafty.

This is not in the walls. It is pieces cut to go in the openings. It is foil/foam/rubber/foil about 1.5 inch thick. the foam is black, heavy.

Rivet No Idea

My under the bed doors have nothing like that. Rubber gaskets, but nothing like you are describing. The one behind the refrigerator doesn’t even have a gasket. It does have louvers to let air in for combustion. The fridge in my Excella is over the wheel well.

If you look at the photos of the inside of the refrigerator cabinet at http://www.airforums.com/forums/f425...aes-44474.html you can see the inside of the door. It is covered with plastic to keep the mosquitoes out, but you can see that there is nothing like what you are describing.

I will watch for the photos. It could be something a previous owner made. You have my curiosity peaked now.
