Insulation in 1963 Airstream

I was wondering what type of insulation to use in walls? Colin Hyde told me about some, which I would like to use, but forgot!

Most people seem to be using Reflectix ( found at HD or Lowes) or Prodex which is online, sign up for notifications and half off sales are fairly frequent.

How many feet of Prodex did you buy Hihoagrv, and what width? Did you do the floor as well? Thanks for the help, as I do not want to buy more then I need.

I used one 4' wide roll and a small roll of reflectix from a Big Box Store. This was enough to do a double layer in the walls/ceiling. I used sheet foam under the floor. Almost every scrap was used.
