I have access to a thermal camera from work, so I figured I would take some shots of the camper being heated on a cool evening.  The results are startling.  The thermal imager is going to be my stud finder of choice from now on.  It was probably 50 out at night with 70 degrees or so in the camper and I was seeing 8 degrees or more surface temperature difference on the inside wherever there was a "stud."  

The camper is going to need some more insulation.  Unfortunately some of parts I have already insulated a bunch didn't show much improvement over other ones.  

 What is really noticable is how much the reflectix in the windows helped.  The front windows have reflectix under the shade and the slide out and dinette windows do not.  The difference is night and day.
