Insulation

I removed the couch in my 28' Grey Wolf. That leaves a cargo door showing from the inside. I am going to insulate it and put a piece of the paneling I took out over the door, just so it looks nice. My question: Normally in house construction the insulation paper goes up or inside so you can see the paper. Which way does it go in an RV?

And do I need a vapor barrier?

I do have a 30 amp circuit now, so the AC is humming. Yippee.

More often than not the cargo door is already insulated to some degree. See if there is a soft foil looking material on the inside of the door. You could further insulate either the door or the inside of the panel with some styrofoam. (Lowes or Building Supply store, various thicknesses available.)

There is nothing on the door except whatever it is made from. I think it is offset enough I can get 2" of the pink stuff in there and cover it with a panel. I didn't think of styrofoam. Good idea, thanks.
