    Thanks. That was confusing me a bit. I didn't think to check their website. I think I am going to go with this.

    Has anyone tried using those popup gizmos, the high wind ones (with the bungee cord) and then rigged some reflectix under the bunk (outside liner, like) so it covers the underside of bunk end, leaving a flap against the ends of the camper? Does anyone understand? I'm trying to describe an image I have in my head, lol, not sure if I'm writing it correctly.

    How about Reflectix attached to the underside of the bunkends? Effective? Would it have the same moisture issues as sealing under your floor boards?

    Yes, it would cause the same problems. Moisture can't get through it so it would be trapped between the Reflectix and the wood. Not good.

    Removable with velcro and only have it attached when bunks are deployed? I assume it's a long term issue in regards to moisture in that location.

    You could try it and then when you take it off you will find out how much moisture is there.

    But from a completely practical point of view, why spend the money on the Reflectix for that application when you can spend a lot less on some Styrofoam board to slide under the mattress on the inside?

    I wasn't clear, I've already done the foam. I wanted to do both.

    My recommendation is to forget about the idea.

    Works great too. Indestructible.
