Why do we need this insulation and cover under trailer

I have a 2010 bunkhouse and i am chasing some kind of water leak. Either way why in the world do we have the under cover and insulation????? I will not use it in the winter. I do in the summer. Can i just cut that out so i can get it to dry under there?????

Yes you can cut everywhere you want and clean the surface with thinner where you tape off with Gorilla Tape.

Keep in mind if you remove it and don’t reinstall it, it WILL affect your resale/trade in value down the line.

It also provides a level of protection for tanks, plumbing and wiring from road debris while towing. I've read somewhere it also makes the trailer more aerodynamic by reducing drag.

I got into the floor tonight and i would not remove the material. It would expose the underside of the trailer that is all unprotected wood. One trip down the road in the rain. Forget about. Just a thought.
