Welcome to the CRVL forums Taximan! There are differing opinions on insulating. I would insulate - warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer but when a vehicle does get hot in the summer it takes longer for the heat to dissipate if it's insulated and vice-versa for the winter. Having a white vehicle is one of the most important factors in summer heat so you lucked out there.

To help you learn the ins and outs of these forums, this "Tips, Tricks and Rules" post lists some helpful information to get you started.

Most of our rules boil down to two simple over-riding principles: 1) What you post should provide good information (like your introductory post), and 2) Any response to someone else's post should make them feel glad they are part of this forum community.

We look forward to hearing more from you.

If it was me, I'd pull it out and insulate.

If you plan to cool or heat the rig, I would consider it mandatory.

I would take out the peg board too. is it metal pegboard or that pressed saw dust stuff(Masonite). if it's metal I might be interest in buying it off you. highdesertranger
