Doing lots of plumbing changes here as we set up our trailer on our new 'homestead'--curious - does anyone know what the R value of the insulation in the underbelly is? When working in a part of the underbelly where the pipes aren't close to vents - when I get it all put back together I want to make sure to have it right. Thanks in advance for any and all help - you are the best!!!:-D

Check the cover for your circuit breakers, there should be a HUD spec. sheet that gives R values, roof load rating, and other design specs. Greg

The amount of insulation in the floor is limited to the size of the floor joists. Most homes will have 2x6 floor joist and have R-19 batt insulation. There is also a high density batt insulation for use in 2x6 voids which is R-21
