I added some insulation in a few places on both of my RVs.

This video shows foam board, spray foam and a few other forms of insulation on my truck camper.

Here's a video showing foam board in the pass through storage bay on the under side of the bed platform.

Most heat loss is through the ceiling.

Not on my rigs. The ceiling is much thicker than the walls.

DB, great project -- thanks for posting! I never would have thought about insulating the pass-through, but that makes a lot of sense.
