If it squeaks, then you have something loose or not installed tight enough. Craft paper in between insulation and plywood helps (course if the conversion is done-SOL). One of the reasons my conversion took so long to do was I have the ability to easily take virtually everything apart since it is screwed together. If something squeaks on my bus, it is taken care of immediately-it drives me crazy. But-as previously stated-the spray foam isn't one of the things that squeaks. My main squeaker is the toaster oven-we put a clean rag in to cushion the shelves. Good Luck, TomC

One other comment I have would be to plastic/paper everything. What happens if you want to re skin your bus? Since Star Junk skinned ours, we have been talking about redoing it. Problem is, we have spray foam in there. How are we going to pull it off?

Next bus (there won't be another one, I can tell you) we will plastic or paper between the foam and the skin.
