Sounds good. Under floor insulation is on my todo list.

Did get a lot done but the weather was a bit cold for crawling about under the caravan. But still did enjoyed it and a few beers in the club at tea time made it better.

Busy indeed.

Did you notice any difference to warmth and or comfort levels with the underfloor insulation fitted ?

I had to ask as if I didn't someone else would have.

Hi Firemansam,I can recommend Skipsea caravans as really honest people, I had them down to insulate our caravan , and it turned out that it had already been done ( blush) , but they were honest enough to say " you know we could of banged about for an hour and charged you" and I think that was great business strategy, as I will def be phoning them if I need anything else doing. Mind u I thought the caravan cold seeing as how it was insulated ??

Not noticed any difference yet as Iwas just it for 1 night but down for the w-end so hopefully then.It was already insullulated from the factory so the therma-wrap went on top.Pretty straight forward job really keep the vents clear used stainless steel staples.
