OK.. took the remaining 3 sheets of 1" back to home depot and got 7 sheets of half inch and a roll of rosin paper for the floor. One small step for woman..

Assuming you're talking about heat from the sun baking your metal roof and cooking those inside.

Many here have mixed some ceramic beads into their roof paint which cut way down on the heat transfer. Re-painting the roof is way easier than re-insulating the roof from the inside.

Easier to park in the shade

decks make good thermal breaks especially if there is 4 or 5 inches between roof and deck material for air movement

Yes, I will be painting the roof around the end of March.

And yes, shade is good. It's not like I live in Phx. *lol* but still. I think the bus is pretty well insulated regardless. And I'll have lots of windows to open with screens.

Shade is a little rare in NM! We are under one of the few really shady spots in the park! Downside are the lousy birds that get on the roof and run up and down the length of the bus. And one night, I swear I heard a chicken fall out of the tree, onto the roof then slide down to the ground. David says he didn't hear anything, but he's getting pretty deaf.

Re: Transmogrifie and Me

I rented a house once that the squirrels would run across the roof. A tree at one end and one at the other. Surprisingly annoying. Especially when they drop their nut or pine cone and it runs down the roof, pings against the gutter and into whatever else it ricochets onto.

Mmm....electric fence wire from side to side
Nevermind scratch that thought...
Birds running the 40 foot hurdle race might be louder
