Insulation Question

I just purchased 2019 FR 274WR Cherokee, How do I find out how much, if any insulation is in it? Looked on FR website could not find it anywhere in the online manuals they offer,

Ask the dealer to provide a "build sheet" for your rig. Every rig has one, shows what the factory did to build your rig.

insulation

I asked the salesman about the insulation, he said it had a lot? I'll get in touch with the dealer tomorrow and request a copy of the build sheet. thanks

At best, it's only a 3 season trailer.

Build tours sometimes show you what type and how much. Depends on the model and upgrades obviously but will give you an ideal often. Most use bat insulation in the roofs between the trusses and depending on if it's metal sided or fiberglass if they use bat or styrofoam in the walls. Floors are all over the board on types. Sometimes you can find "R" Values published but they are not to be counted on too heavily.

A build sheet shows what "supposed" to be in there, what's actually in there, is another story. I had to pull an outlet box in my TT while doing some work and looked inside the wall. Looked like they ran out of a full sheet of insulation and picked up scraps off the floor and tossed them in there.
