These are some of the pieces of Styrofoam insulation that came out of the inside of the camper.




I re-fit them back into the camper.




The Styrofoam that they used is only 1 inch thick and the camper framework is 1-1/2 inch thick.
This leaves a gap of 1/2 inch between the foam and the interior paneling.
I filled this space with 1/2 inch thick foil backed Styrofoam.




I use the level as a saw guide for cutting the paneling.

It makes a nice even and straight cut this way.




Some of the interior panels are fastened in place.
The finish on the panels is Bamboo.




The front window opening and roof vent openings have been cut out.




The panels are fastened on the sides and the window openings cut out.

Here's how they look from the outside.






And with the windows open.






I'm fixing the front window up with a frosted glass so the light can show thru but you can't see thru it.
This way we don't have to constantly be opening and closing a curtain way up there.
