Added carpet and padding for winter

While everyone is winterizing their aframe for winter storage I am making my setup ready for winter :-)

Home depot happened to be selling a few boxes of 2x2 square carpet with thin padding and i bought a box. I also bought a roll of carpet padding.

Once installed I had 2 layers of padding and then the carpet squares. I had to cut a few of them but for the most part it was plug n play.

No more cold floor for me lol.

Hope so. Colorado mountains next month. Best part is if I ruin a square I pick it up and put a new one in. Spent $30 so far.

I put rigid foam under my A-frame. I used some small furring strips and construction adhesive. The foam is attached to the strips to leave a small air space. I didn't want water to get trapped up under there. I'll post some pics this weekend.

Anything that holds any moisture, even residual moisture I would think should not be recommended AT ALL.

Id be curious on the pics carlsbad. I was thinking the same thing. The floor warranty is a joke imo

Think of it this way....put a towel on a cold floor in the coldest ...smallest room in your house....live sleep..and possibly boil water in the 6x4 room.
Forget the osb flooring debates...is this even a logical idea....

This is what I did for floor insulation: Anti-fatigue mat on the roll from Lowes. 3 feet wide. Trimmed the edges to fit the various nooks and crannies.

I agree, I just use two throw rungs on the floors and cook something on the stove to heat the place up while boondocking. If hooked up I use the heat pump when I can. These trailers are just a glorified tent trailer with a little insulation and leak a lot of air.

Thatís why I put the furring strips and left a little room for moisture to escape. When I post the pics you will see what I did. I didnít have time today. I also have the gas line and some electrical lines up under the space.

Every trailer is different. My A-frame required a custom cut for each piece. I used polyurethane glue. Not a screw in the install.
