I can't speak for every trailer, but I have not seen one yet that had extra insulation behind the underbelly cover.

Probably not, the insul is in the floor, floorboard, foam and outer luan sandwiched together. Bored a 6" hole in mine, its a total of 51/2" thick about 80% styrofoam. The pan will serve as a dead space, retarding outside air from reaching the cabin. Ever sit in a underway vehicle and touch the floor and tranny tunnel. It can get quite warm at high sustained speed, all due to friction and turbulence. The mfg. didn't install the pan for free, Engineering, fab and install costs money, yours, why throw it away?
Just wondering....

"It kind of bugs the H#$l out of me thinking about gas lines or water lines or wires or connections or tanks or nuts or bolts or brackets that are loose or leaking or getting chaffed or worn or missing parts or..."
If this tank leaked or failed I could replace it myself w/o the hassle of having an unknown amount of sewage laying on the skin. Same with gray water problems. Also, the moisture is being held in against the frame and the floor materials. Why would I want my floor to be soaked in urine or ...?
If my brakes are acting up I could easily check for many simple problems or fixes.
Same with lights.

ok, thanks. I will have to look and see if I have any under my Surveyor 305. Wonder how much this spry in Foam installation weights? Spray Foam Insulation | Home Insulation | RetroFoam™

Later,

John
