Trunk compartment question
On the 66 Safari, there are three small compartment doors on the back side of the trailer..(The opposite side of the entrance door). The middle trunk door opens up into the compartment under the couch-which opens up into a bed. Should this compartment be enclosed? When I lifted up the couch cusions I could see directly into this compartment & could see the back of the trunk door. Should this be enclosed to insulate better and keep critters/bugs out? Is the Airstream Insulated? 4season camper?:confused:

My mh has 1 5/8" between the walls with fiberglass insulation. There are people who live in them year round, but it takes a lot of propane.

If the gaskets on the compartment doors are good they are not really any different than the entrance door.

Mine is like that too, and I think it's kind of handy. I keep tools and flashlight in that compartment along with the other stuff that's permanently there, and I can access it just by pulling up a cushion.

One other thing, although my trailer was stored in a barn, I have been amazed at the lack of bugs and critters in it. I have spent the last couple weeks cleaning it, and have not found so much as a spider. I thought I heard a mouse the first day, but never found any evidence of one, so hopefully it left and went to live with the other mice in the shed! A tip from the previous owner said that when the trailer is hooked up and there are cords and hoses hanging down out of the utility compartment, stuff the remaining space in the access hole with steel wool, and the mice won't be able to get past it and invade.
