Where can you buy R-Max?

I almost forgot about this: www.quietride.com
Quality heat shield is 3/8", "R" factor is 18.3. If you need something thin this is much better than the bubble wrap product. A roll of 4' x 48' is $149.95

.....I CAN'T FIND ANYTHING IN ASHRE HANDBOOK ABOUT "QUIETRIDE" ANY OTHER REFERENCES? THE STUFF SEEMS "OUZ-SOME"-LIKE THE ANSWER WITH A R-18+ x3/8"..... BUT WITHOUT ANY TESTING IT'S JUST HYPE.....I HAVE GOTTEN 1,000,000 DIFFERENT SALES PITCHES ON INSULATION IN THE LAST 30 YEARS AND WITHOUT ANY ASHRE TESTING IT'S JUST A SALES PLOY.....AND AT 78 CENTS A SQ FT-I WONDER WHY IT IS NOT USED IN HOUSING WORLD WIDE....THATS 1/3 THE COST OF HOME INSULATION ON A PER FOOT BASIS TODAY.....GEOF

I have used quietride on my pickup truck and its works very good. They claim it has an "R" factor is 18.3, not sure how they came up with this or what the "factor" is! Try some of the bubble wrap product under the hood of your car or truck and see how long it can last!


Where did you buy R-Max(Polyisocynate)???????????????????

....building supply dealers in your area or Home Depot or Lowe's maybe.....comes in several different brand names-Celotex is just one of producers...the name isn't the issue it's the foam itself....smap a strip open if it has some glass hairs in in it for strength-you got the right stuff......there used to be a product that just had a fiberglass skin[green] over the foam-it's not on the market anymore......R-Max is just a brand name for polyisocynate board....geof

Found some Dow Tuff-R polyisocyanurate, I am going to buy the some sheets that have one bad corner (very minor) at %40 off.

Not sure why Showhauler would use that bubble wrap product, from the photo's it looks like they do a good job on the steel frame. The double wall is good too, but it should be insulated with foam or at least fiberglass batts.
