Re: But baby it's cold out side...

Spray foam can stick pretty well -- they use it on the outside of the space shuttle fuel tank. Oh... Never mind.

Seriously, it might work nicely under a bus, and spray bedliner material is good stuff too. But I agree with Demonknight about getting any kind of "undercoating" on the hardware that you may -- make that WILL -- need to work on later. It's hard enough working under the bus as it is.

So I would raise the roof, yes. Oh... I did. See The Millicent Chronicles under Projects.

Then insulate floor and ceiling to your heart's content.

Re: But baby it's cold out side...

I priced out spraying my bus while I worked at a dealership and it was going to be at least $1500 just for the foam. It's pricey stuff. And with all the items that need to be accessed it's a huge pain. Do you really need to insulate your floor? We left the wood and rubber floor, added a foam/vapour barrier combo then put down laminate and ours isn't too cold (morning kitchen floor temp.) and our bus is burried in 6 feet of snow right now.
