Specific descriptions of Arctic Insulation is available at Keystonerv.com
Click on brochures/ archives. Find a year and model and each one will describe what it is.

And don't believe that because they use the word "Arctic" that it means you'll be kept warm there.

They have all kinds of clever ways to add R-Value to their ratings. None of it really adds up in my opinion. It may help to have different matts and shieldings etc but actual insulation is what counts in my opinion. That is the big difference in my opinion when comparing our units against a DRV Mobile Suites or something similar that actually has a wide body with 3" walls.

"What exactly an arctic insulation package?" Sales gimmick consisting of a 1/4" thick piece of Reflectix the width of your fiver placed on top of your belly material and (I think) in late models above the roof insulation.

Yup, it's mostly just hype. Doesn't mean it's nothing, just not what the image conveys in your mind.
