    Just got back from Home Depot in Durango.....all they had was polystyrene in 1 or 2". Had some of the pink stuff, but 3" thick, which is way too thick.

    We use 4” thick of the pink or blue for walkin coolers and freezers.

    anybody out there know the "r-value" of standard 1" and 1 1/2" white styrene? vs r-value of the pink board? pink was more spendy,but maybe I should return the "white" type back to home depot before I get very far?was thinking of glueing the 1" to the bottom of the trailer floor between the frame cross members,,not sure if that would retain them or if id need to install possibly a sheetmetal type of retainer from undernieth for the floor?

    expanded polystyrene is about R4, extruded polystyrene (blue, pink or green) is R5, ISO board is R6.5, 2 lb Spray foam is R7. That is all per 1 inch of thickness.

    Have you considered just not insulating it and throwing a cheap rug in there. We were all about insulating the bottom of the trailer until I saw a few builds where people just threw carpet down to keep some of the heat in. With a Mr buddy heater in the mornings and evenings it worked great. Just a thought.

    WOW! That is really great, but on this years elk hunt it was down to 5 at night and usually not above freezing during the day. Not sure I want to be taking an outside shower....LOL

    It is nice to have a shower especially during the hot, dusty early season hunts.
    When all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe, only then will you discover you cannot eat money.

    CC, you just gotta be quick about it !! Seriously though, it does have its limitations with extreme cold hunts.. I would worry about freezing and damaging the unit, it does have a drain plug though.
