Have you seen the junk construction quality of most RV's???? And you think they are gonna adopt something you can't even see to make them "better"?
I hate to tell ya Mex, but all is lost.

I noticed 2nd graders have the same issues. Curious.

The difference is that 2nd graders are given information they can use.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

The US has always had cheap energy. Some day we will insulate everything much better. Earth sheltered homes will be common place. we will be able to heat them with the occupants and a few light bulbs. A heat pump will be used to push air through underground chambers.

Someday, home insulation will drive the market for aerogels -- if there is a way to retrofit existing homes with blow-in aerogel (inside the walls and between the studs), that is a multi-billion dollar market.

The RV market will be a fraction of the bigger market.

Clothing, bedding, schools, refrigerators, coolers. Take a look at the cost of CRUA camping gear. I have a non vacuum insulated Thermos brand coffee mug which I wish held coffee twice as long.
If I was a liberal I'd mention children and pets in cars. But the scope is endless. Being a point of issue is OK but at the present time we have another crisis to fry.

Mex,

If you want the coffee to last twice as long, consumption has to be reduced by 50% LOL

This news is ancient history. Aerogel has been around for almost a century.
