My Unimog campervan has a body built of 14mm GRP faced plywood with an 18mm plywood floor and an aluminium roof.
To reduce heat losses to acceptable levels I intend to insulate the walls and floor with 30mm of X-trem (foamed polyethylene sheet) and the roof with 60mm of X-trem.
The very approximate heat loss due to conduction (in Watts) for a 35°C temperature difference is given below.
This gives a total heat loss of about 1kW with an outside temperature of -15°C and an inside temperature of +20°C. As I have at least 2kW of heating available this should mean that my Mog will be suitable for use in Northern European winters.
Consider adding more insulation to the rear wall, say 60mm not 30mm.
