Most people associate insulation with heat and keeping warm, but by installing insulation inside your vehicle it will also protect you from extreme heat and cool down the interior.
What type of insulation is good?
This all depends on how efficient you want the insulation to be, how much you want to keep niggling noises from the outside world at bay and, as always, how much you want to spend when insulating your vehicle (it's that money thing again!).
Below are some of the more popular insulating materials used:
· Rigid insulation panels such as Polystyrene sheets, Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) and Styrofoam.
· Flexible synthetic wool (such as that used to insulate a loft).
· Thinsulate insulation from 3M which is polyester and polypropylene micro-fibre that won't absorb water.
· Semi-flexible insulating panels which is often used to insulate cavities in brickwork.
· Foam or other similar products.
· Ready to stick foils.
Most of the above insulation materials should be available from most builder’s merchants and DIY stores and there’s also plenty of Web sites and suppliers online. Build a Wild, Festival Camper in just a Few Days!
