Guys:
What are your thoughts on going to Lowes or Home Depot and buying normal insulation fill the gap in the under belly?

If you use "normal" by my definition, it mean fiberglass matt insulation. that will get wet and mold rather quickly, becoming a huge mess.


If you are going to do it yourself, i would use closed cell foam board insulation, bonded together and cut into blocks cut to fit the areas you want to insulate. then i would also add a sheathing of some sort, maybe corrugated plastic sheeting, also sealed from moister ingress, and cover the entire underbelly and insulation blocks. being sure to seal any areas that moisture could enter the insulated area, for example around drains, water hook ups, wiring, and plumbing.


I know, and understand the desire to use spray on foam....its easy, does a good job, and is relatively inexpensive

Good point. Never thought of moisture and mold. Any idea what it would cost to get someone to blow spray foam. Is there a diy spray foam available?

The insulation FR uses is Air Tight. a certified installer was handling the application.


the web site should be...

Spray Foam Insulation

I didn't see anything on the Airtight website about using their product in a transportation application. There is a huge difference in a product designed for stationary vs mobile use.

There is, but that is what FR uses. I would have to believe that the engineers at FR did there research, and chose a product that works in this application.

Read thru this page on the air tight website....it may clear things up a bit.

AirTight Closed Cell Spray Foam



They are using the closed cell version, which will not absorb water unless the cell surface is breached. AirTights closed cell foam meets requirements for a class 2 vapor retarder at 2" of thickness. it's not plastic sheating, but its better than craft faced batts insulation at repelling moisture, and allowing the interior to breath and dry out.

Our '15 30WRS had a standard interior height of 84" We had it raised the additional 6" (interior height = 90"). Without it, I was unable to walk under the rear electric queen without ducking. The cabinets are mounted in the original position and they extended them to the roof. The cabinet guys did a very nice job of this. The front cap had 6" added to the bottom, which is nice because I can put a tool box on the generator rack and still be able to open it. The ramp is also 6" taller, which lessens the angle going into the garage. The awning also gets raised 6". I think the extra ceiling height is one of the better options you can get on a Work and Play especially when you consider the amount of work they do versus the price of the option. Its too bad they don't advertise it as an option. We had a very helpful dealer and factory rep that answered any question we had prior to ordering

Speaking of options that aren't listed
You can also get a 30wrs, and other models with an extended garage. Our dealer had one with a 14' garage. Overall the trailer was 40' long.
Electric stabilizers is another option they don't advertise but we had added to ours.

There should be a Work and Play thread with all the unadvertised options you can get on these trailers. They are very customizable but most people don't know it. I just learned by reading this thread I can get a screen door for the garage slider.

You are correct, I was mistaken on them being mounted higher. They are just taller cabinet's. I was lucky when I ordered mine that the rep was on site at the dealer when I ordered and was able to take benefit from the customizable stand point.

for 2015 i was told the added 6" was standard. so I didnt order the additional 6.....but after looking at pictures....im not so sure i have as tall a unit as yours JC....its going to be a bad day for the dealer if our unit doesn't have the 90" interior....
