Cedar Creek: Insulation in Slides

The only construction cut-aways I can find for the Cedar Creek do not show nor explain how the slides are insulated. I presume the walls of the slide are the 2" block foam, but I wonder about the floor and ceiling.

Yesterday I was checking out the Dutchmen Infinity out of curiosity (love that front kitchen, but the LR sucks), and I noticed that the slides were rated at R-8 or 9. Surely they don't mean the entire slide all the way around.

I own a 2011 Salem Grand Villa. It was purchased with the Arctic Package. Like you, I could not find nor did I receive any literature on just what material is installed. I did however see a demo on the aftermarket Arctic package install. Walls are rated r13 foam board, Ceiling and floor are r35min. spray foam w/ a bug and rodent arrester, I notice the difference in the outside noise level as well as the temps. My 2000 Wildwood had a comfortable room but cool slides. The Grand Villa is cozy in all corners as well as the slides and the furnace runs half the amount that it did in the older camper. Also have noticed that the floor stays much warmer due to being insulated. I do not believe the Wildwood had much of anything in the floor by way of insulation.

Thanks for your reply, Hotshott. Interesting, I wonder why they don't do the spray foam in regular RVs. The R-values are great, and I love the idea of a rodent resistance. Where did you find this demo on the insulation installation, if I may ask?

On my 2010 SATS, the slide rooms are definetely colder than the main coach. I don't have an arctic pckg so that prolly makes all the difference.

Thank you for your reply, rattleNsmoke. According to my research, your 2010 CC would have come standard with R-38 insulation in the floor and roof. Hmmm....the slide insulation must be significantly different than the rest of the coach.
