Insulation - Reflectix for white Argosy??

Hey all,

Still pretty new here. Working on restoring our frame currently but thinking ahead to insulation.

We are in Canada (cold, cold, cold!)

Trying to find some information on how products likes Prodex and Reflectix would work with a white painted Argosy. In threads I've been reading, people are concerned about the heat transference from their shiny exterior aluminum but our interior walls don't seem to get to hot in the sun. All the science lingo with how these products work is going over my head.

I'm more concerned about staying warm then cold. Any suggestions for insulation?

I used Reflectex in my walls. It won't hold moisture or odors plus rodents don't care for it.
I cut the pieces to size then cut strips of 1/2" foam board and taped them with Tyvek taped to the Reflectex front and back.
This will allow airspace in the wall rather than shove the stuff up against the wall.
