Rockwood Mini Lite Construction

Today, went to install a new lock. Pretty neat, has 2 key fobs, key pad and keys. Anyway, during removal, noticed the door has a foam insert. Made me wonder so looked around the walls are about an inch thick and filled with foam in between the outer and inner surfaces. The cieling is filled with foam and the AC ducts carved in the foam. The floor, seems to be the same way. The compartment doors are thick with insulation.

Can anybody comfirm or shed some light on some construction details details?

Go to Forest River website, then to travel trailers, then to Mini Lite, then to specifications, then to brochure. It will show how walls, floors & ceilings are constructed.

Not sure, but will still show the construction.
When I bought mine, dealer had wall, floor & ceiling samples.

I had a brochure but as detailed as that one. What got me thinking is, that we went to the TT about a month a go. To store some new cookware and few other things Was cold, around low 40 degrees. The heater was not on and was not really a need to turn the furnace on; was ok; you can sit around inside with a sweater. I was wondering how was constructed that seems to be decently insulated. Keeping that in mind, today went back as I said before and started to look around.

I am so tempted to see if I can camp out in the winter. Might try the next coming winter. Before I go head first, will try a bit at the time, dry camp for a day or so to see if is bearable.
