Didn't get everything I wanted done this weekend. I was able to do the floor and get it ready to fill in the seat holes and then for primer and stop rust. and 1 side of the walls AND was still able to verify my back was still there and not in the shape it use to be in. Anyway on the windows I was going to re seal them but what about the upper part? the windows have a window rubber foam type seal. Do you guys just replace while you are there or if it is still solid to bus (stuck too) and seams good shape (other than looking dried out) just leave it?

If you do remove it what helps to remove it. GOO GONE and razor blade any good or is there something diff that works better?

thanks

So I have only had a few hours here and there to work on the bus I don't have any pictures yet but I'll get there. Finally got all the side insulation out and got everything all cleaned up and ready for patch work and fill in any holes on the floor.
Have a question.
I called around my area on foam board insulation for pricing and availability. Options are slim really and not sure why.

3/4 blue board
1" blue board no foil
1" blue with foil on one side or
2" white board (the only kind available around in 2")
I don't know about the foil. Does that give it a better R value than reg blue board without it?
Thanks

I installed 1" double-faced rigid foam, R6. Single face would be R4.

You will want to place the foil side facing up on the floor and facing into the interior of the bus for the walls. However, up and away(silver part facing the ceiling) on the ceiling from all the posts i have read. I'm sure some one will correct me if i am wrong.

Is the foil (faced sid) the better option of the choices?

it depends on how you are building your floating floor,is it 2 inches deep or 1? are you going to live in it full time or not? Where you plan to travel in your schoolie. What are the R values for each item you have listed?

Is the foil (single face) a good option?

Like to travel as much as I can and if we were able to live in it full time we would probably relocate to warmer weather when needed. Not sure of the R value just read people talking about it. I just didn't know if the foil face is better or not.

to me it is a good option as it is a form of vapor barrier but still allows room to breathe. I will personally be doing a combination of foam board and the reflective. The best option if you are planning to live in the schooly full time and in cold climates is the highest r-value you can get for a reasonable price.

that's the whole thing though, its how you want your schoolie to turn out. I plan to be in cold weather states and high humidity as i travel. To me a vapor barrier and high R value matter. If you plan to stay in warm climates the entire time you live on your schoolie you probably wont need the same high R-value and vapor barrier i do.
