Garage floor insulation in Voltage Epic 3990

Does anyone know if there is any insulation under the garage floor on a Voltage Epic 3990? If so what is the R-value? If not has anyone added insulation and if added how much of a problem was it to do so?

I have been on the website but can't seem to find any info at all about garage floor insulation.

My 2014 has zero floor insulation! Crawl under there you can see the tanks and a gap between them and the choroplast.

I spoke with 2 different dealers today and they claim that the 2018 units have some insulation under the garage floor. Not as much as the rest of the unit and they did not know what the R-Value was.

Mine has zero insulation under the floor of the garage. It doesn't even have the underbelly that covers the rest of the underneath of the camper.

Dealers=Salesman=BIG FAT LIARS!
Yes, I would go check if you are expecting it, and I would be very surprised if there was. Please keep us posted. Somewhere I read they couldn't due to fuel fumes need to release and vent or something like that. I could be wrong , I doubt it.

Yeah, I've never seen ANY toy hauler with insulation under the garage. Not saying there aren't any.. just that I've never seen any.

The Grand Design Momentum does but there are some potential plumbing issues with them that give me a little concern. Also, the Jayco Seismic does but the electric leveling system instead of hydraulic concerns me there.

Our 2003 Victory Lane had fibreglass insulation. Nice and thick to hold the water that got under the floor up against the plywood -> replace big section of floor totally rotten.

I was under my garage to install a motorcycle chock and there is no insulation, only two fuel tanks. Walk in there on a very cold morning and you quickly feel the lack of insulation.
