Reflectix in portables

4 posts in this topic

I have a Clam 6800 an am wndering how you guys put up your reflectix insulation. I can put it up on the 2 poles in the middle but every time you teardown do you foldit up or how do you guys attach it. Just spend the time and is it worth the extra heat?

I have an otter so I just leave it up between the canvas and poles. With yours I would think that you would either have to take it down or use duct tape to keep it in place. Do you have velcro straps on the canvas to attach to your poles? If you did I would cut small slits where the velcro straps are and feed them through the reflectix to keep it in place. I used the 48" wide roll one strip down the middle of the roof of my house and I was in business.

Some guys use the foil tape to connect the sheets together.

And yes it is worth the time to put it in your house, most of the heat goes out through the roof of the house, no ice up or dripping since I did it to mine.

If you do put it in your shack take some pic's and post them so we can see how it worked.

I,ve used it before in my portable. I used 3M velcro srtips and hot melt glued them to the shack and the reflectic material. It worked great to help keep the heat in. Only disadvantage was if your out there all day it ices up between the two pretty bad. You can get it at any Menards Home Depot it looks like aluminum foil bubble wrap
