R factor 2016 z-1 211RD

I have looked every where I can think of on sites to see what the R factor is for this trailer. Can any one help me ? Is it 7 ?

Since we have the same model, I went out and looked. Owner's manual, decals, cabinet sticker, package of manuals. Nothing at all about R value. Just curious, why do you ask?

R values are pretty meaningless. First, there is only so much insulation that can be installed in a 2" thick wall and almost every manufacturer plays the trick of claiming the "best case calculated R value". Yet substantial areas of the RV are much worse. That combined with substantial air leaks in all trailers has a much bigger impact on interior comfort than the "best case" numbers.

Examples: 1) 25% of the floor area has much less insulation, the area between the frame rails and outside walls is just the thickness of the floor joist (about 3 inches) vs. the underbelly area between the frame rails. 2) the interior wall of the frig. cabinet have almost zero insulation even though the backside is exposed to the full range of outside temps in summer and winter. 3) slideout walls, roof and floor are thinner and have less insulation than the main body, surface area will be substantial with multiple slideouts. 4) everyone uses Reflectix foil insulation and claims the "equivalent" R value even when installed wrong and in places that are almost devoid of IR rays to reflect.

I could go on, but there are just so many weaknesses, too many to fully list.

Well I doubt there is very good (high R Factor) insulation in a TT. You can put high R Factor insulation in a 2" width but it would be way to expensive for TT.

My 211rd seems reasonable to me.
