Spray on insulation for horse trailer roof
[Return to Topics]

I was wondering if someone had an idea of what I could use to insulate the roof in the dressing room part of my trailer.
I saw a trailer on the net that had something sprayed on-it wasn't Rhino was just over 1/4 inch. Called the rhino lining guy and he said it doesn't insulate.
The horse compartments are double walled and do not suffer the condensation that the people part does.
Appreciate any ideas.

Yes, add a roof vent - available from any camper/RV shop and then for the insulation, you can buy sheets of 1 inch thick stiff sheets of insulating board at lumber places. This can be applied with caulking gun glue. Be sure to read glue directions carefully to get the correct kind.

If you don't want to use a roof vent, you can add vents on the sides also.

You need to determine where the"moisture" is coming from and reduce/eliminate it.Water vapor enters with the air and condenses on the cool metal.Simply adding insulation will cause the vapor to saturate the insulation setting you up for mold/mildew problems.Sounds like what your primary need is,would be ventilation,such as a roof vent or exhaust fan more than insulation.

I would think it would work.I saw a show the other night bored terrible otherwise wouldnt have anyway.This man in Virginia is building these metal domes.To live in.In the section between the domnes he calls breezeway he used spray insulation, the foam.It was a yellow color.He said you can get other colors.He used it because he said it reminded him of a cave and it worked great.
