    The locker over the cab that I use for all my clothes etc (mrs ips got the back ones and mini me ips got the side ones) must have buitl in AC cos its chuffing freezing in there. I need to line the thing any ideas as to what product and were from, thinking on the lines of some sort of "roof liner" used in boats etc. but open to any ideas.

    Many thanks in advance - ips

    Bubble wraps a good heat insulator or foam rubber.

    There is a product that is used to line walls behind domestic radiators.

    It has a thin sheet of polystyrene gflued to a sheet of reflective foil.

    Its easy to handle and cut to shape.
    I've actually used some to line the underneath of the wall cupboards above the cooker and kitchen area to prevent heat damage from the hob and toaster!

    Ips,

    I like spacerunner's suggestion.

    We used a sleeping bag mat, to enclose the hab. side of a gas locker, secured with PVA adhesive, it worked very well, but the foil will be easier to handle.

    We use the thin stuff for all sorts including wrapping the demijons woman makes wine in..
    Also used it in a sandwich config between sheets of cardboard ( 3 of cardboard 2 of the styrene.. it is about a 1/16th of an inch thick ) to line a storage unit some time ago

    Van was very cold at weekend doing the other job but I can report that the overcab locker job worked a treat definately nowere near as cold in there since I fitted the liner. So I reccomend this to anyone with a similar problem.
