For it's thickness, Reflectix is actually pretty darned effective. And yes...more layers = more R factor. I used it on the out facing surfaces of all my interior body panels combined with two coats of HyTech beads in latex paint at 25%. Since I don't have a lot of room to stuff thick sheets, it was a reasonable alternative.

You can see where the cedar isn't finished and the paneling is covering the foam board and bubble foil.
At the paneling there is NO heat transfer to the touch

I found Reflectix at HD. Some stores stock it and others will ship to store free.

There is single white & double reflective available. I'm wondering if they could be interchangeable since the double has an R rating of 3.7 to 21 and the singles rating is 3.0 to 7.5.

The rating increases based on the application and since using on windows is not one of the applications referred, I wonder if we would only be looking at a difference of .7 between the two when placed over windows.

I got a 4'x25' roll at Lowes for $50. Although I seem to remember it saying an R-value of 1 to 3.

Today the DMV inspector came by. She stepped in, glanced at what we had, asked for the title, asked if we had receipts (but didn't even look at them), and gave us a piece of paper approving the retitle to a house car! We just have to take it to the DMV and get our new title and tags. Woohoo!

We don't even have any plumbing hooked up, tanks installed, or electricity other than a battery sitting on the floor hooked up to a 1100 watt inverter.

Today my dad helped us wire the thermostat controller to the chest freezer, so we'll see how much of a difference in power consumption it makes.
