I'm wondering, using the HSC-1000 ceramic, and the spray foam, any idea what kind of extra weight is involved? Loved the fact that you were inside of your trailer when outside temps were close to freezing, and one light bulb had inside temp (after ceramic I believe) close to 70. Being in Florida, keeping the heat out, as well as the cold is important, but weight is a big issue with my moho as well.
Thanks for any info you can provide, Derek

Darkspeed, if you ever get this, I really learned a ton from reading your thread.

Not sure what happened, I hope all is well.

I will admit when I first started reading this thread I thought you were going to really mess your trailer up, I must say it turned out looking really nice. Hope you are still working on it.

Anyone know what's happened to Darkspeed? He suddenly stopped posting and that makes me worry that something bad has happened.

Last I heard his sister had taken the airstream and Darkspeed had bought an aluminum bus to work on.

I blame each & every one of you for driving away Darkspeed before I could get my lascivious hands on any one of his slightly older male relatives.
Of course I'm an elitist. Look around you.

We did it for you 'kid. A 3,000 mile commute is too far for a truly lascivious relationship. Surely Oregon has more to offer than Tillamook cheese and Pendleton blankets.


The Airstream is sold; a 2016 Nash 24M replaced it.
