Insulating under caravan - is membrane needed?

Postby Perry123 » Wed Jan 06, 2021 6:53 pm


Looking for some guidance, I am going to insulate the underneath of my static caravan using fiberglass rolls and was planning to either use insulation support netting or a damp proof membrane sheet to keep the insulation in place.

I am just trying to find out which option would be best, the caravan is boarded round the bottom on all sides so no water can get to the underneath.

Will there be any issues using the netting as the insulation wouldn't be covered and open to the air under the caravan?

Thanks to any that can help :)

Hi perry123
Probably better to use netting so any condensation can evaporate.
