1974 VW Camper
League City, TX
I purchased rubber flooring and underlay. One product was like an insulation and the other was like a more durable surface (I believe used on gym floors, etc.) Use of Product - I have a 1974 VW Camper. I have installed the durable floor surface on ALL of the interior floor space. I intend to glue the rubber insulation (color specs inside) to the side surfaces. A single roll of the durable surface rubber flooring is perfect for doing the entire flooring space (including back cushion/storage area) and is a market application not currently conceived. The rubber insulation isn’t really necessary, but I will put it to use. How I like it - The finished product will perform VERY well. You must understand I am 100% restoring this vehicle - it has already been de-rusted/repainted/engine rebuilt/etc. I used a product called “Lizzard Skin” made here in Houston. I first sprayed the interior metal with soundproofing (incredible results), then with a ceramic finish (hard surface). The net result is an interior surface that will NOT sweat is better than an Igloo and has studio sound system qualities. On top of that is your rubber flooring - making road noise from below a certain 0, providing quality resilient elastic support for the bamboo flooring I am installing over it. My intention is to build to last the rest of my life. Installation - Installation was reasonably simple, but took longer than expected. Cutting the material isn’t the easiest - I used a razor knife, but still (I found use of a long board underneath provided a better cutting surface to start and then allowed the cut seam to open and use the knife blade to slice the seam & after a couple of times, it was done. It took me +/- 10 hours, and I wish had made patterns before starting, but all worked out in the end as bamboo flooring will be over the top. In the driver area, carpet will be laid down over it. I believe you should consider its application to the RV industry. One roll is perfect for my small VW Camper. It provides: (i) noise reduction; (ii) thermal insulation; (iii) comfort underfoot. I don’t know what sweat issues might exist that can cause rusting underneath. I have avoided that as there is no exposed metal underneath.
