Great Job! I just did the lower 1/2 of my 62 Shasta. I also taped all the seams where the wood framing meets the rigid insulation with Nashua waterproof tape on the inside and outside to be on the safe side with moisture infitration. The tape is about $8.00 per roll at Home Depot. Regards, Scott
Scott, I'm considering covering the rigid insulation with tyvek. I have talked to several sources and they can see no problems with it but I'm still a little conserned about condensation. Any thoughts?

Tyvek is designed to let moisture and air out but not in. After my trap leaked a couple of times I covered the top of my trailer with tyvek, never had another leak, at least not on the roof. Just make sure you install it with the writing facing out, use Tyvek tape to seal the seams. The other thing I would recommend is use the large 10' rolls, do the sides first and the the top. Lap the top over the sides and tape the seams.
