Hi schweetcruisers, I saw your web site on your astrodome conversion to an airflyte. I was wondering what shellac you used and the process on new birch plywood. I like the way the finish turned out. What did it cost to foam your trailer? I bought a 59 shasta airflyte and I am doing a complete tear down. I am just getting started. I look forward to bringing it back to life. Thank You.
I am sure our admin and the purist hate me over the spray foam, here's the deal, I would never ever, ever, ever, spray the foam on the the aluminum skin, the way I did it IMHO makes it easier to repair anything that may come up needing service or if it gets damaged.
Feel free to pm me if you have any other questions!

Sorry Cowcharge I'm going have to disagree with you, On the fact you stat that foam board has 50% more r-value than spray foam. Closed cell spray foam has a r-value of 6 per inch. Where as foam board varies between r-4 and r-8 per inch, the white stuff with the foil has the least r-value and the blue and pink stuff has the most. Plus you lose efficiency when foam board is not cut perfectly tight and there are gaps between the framing and foam.
Oops, I did it again. Tuff-R is 9.8 per 1 1/2", not per inch. 6.5/inch. I keep doing that, lousy memory, lol.
I cut my pieces so they're a very tight fit (usually have to thump them into place), and tape over every piece of frame with aluminum tape to make it airtight. Canned spray foam around the AC wires and behind outlets and such. Floor's insulated with 1 1/2". And there's more than three inches of it in the center three feet of the ceiling where the rafters are the thickest, tapering down to 1 1/2" at the edges. Kept it in the 70s in there Christmas Eve when it was 14 out
