Cold Feet no more....!

We often experience really cold feet and realised that our Compass Calypso has nothing in the way of insulation under the ply floor so I got some 50mm insultion froma builder friend.



Cut it up...



And fixed it to the underside using polytop nails and penny washers.



The floor looked like a Columbian drug barons driveway when I had finished...



Yes, we do have a big garage !!

I hope my wife appreciates the effort I have put in to ensure she has warm toes...

Smart job.

Is it fire-resistant?

is it waterproof, only time will tell, once you drive in the rain and water traps bettween the insulation and the floor of the van. we used to have a calypso and have been in -8 deg. and with the heater on no probs.

It doesnt hold water - I am aware that water 'might' be able to get trapped in the gap between the insulation and the timber...

It is easily removable and at three hours to fit it wouldnt matter if it was taken off each year.
