Perry, you might consider white spray-on urethane bed liner for the inside of the outside aluminum skin. If you thin it down a bit before shooting it, it lays down pretty good, reducing the texture you normally see on spray-on truck bedliners. There's a place in Houston that sells the spray-on bedliner in white on Ebay. I bought it and shot my white Tundra's bed with it and it's holding up very well.

So may I ask a question then.. In redoing/fixing/upgrading from the factory, or old insulation, how much better does say a 34 ft international with 6 or 7 windows fare in light winder conditions?? ie: say 20's at night and then 40 - 70's+ days... As in parking it in high mountain camp grounds.. If you had to generically put a % number to it.. How much better is the new setup?? Meaning how much %% does the new insulate/work better then the factory/old..

Just trying to get a feel of what upgrades can do as I am totally new to AS.. I am a 50+ year old, Pacific crest trail type of thru hiker, that may gut a AS and make a simple cabin on wheels lol..

Look at the threads on winter living for an idea. It much of it also applies to high heat condtions. TT's are really shirt sleeve creatures. Above 80F and below 50F one has to start paying attention to energy through-puts, and how to ameliorate them. Best insulation is the [expensive] step.

You'll have to define top quality insulation. The best thing you can do is decide what materials you want to use and then price them locally (prices do vary from region to region). What somebody payed in one part of the country, a year ago, may have little resemblance to what you'd pay in your part of the world now.

Removing the complete interior, and then the inner skin. And, then, removing the shell from the frame . . . . materials are dirt cheap by comparison to labor.
