What is the velour wall covering called in my excella and should we put it back up?

Hey all! We are finishing up our renovation and have a question about the blue velour panels that were originally installed in the front and back sections.

We noticed that the new airstreams just have aluminum next to the bedding. What are your thoughts on this? Is it something we should fabricate to get fabric back in place or just leave it aluminum?

My 75 has the velour panels. We plan on putting them back in, the walls get C-O-L-D in the winter time.

....so many Airstreams....so little time...
Why are we in this basket...and where are we going

Look up "Hull Liner."

We made some 18 inch high insulation panels out of foam core poster board covered with a little more foam and then glued on 1/4 in. thick fabric that is used for liners in music instrument cases. It give better insulation when you roll up against it during the night. The funeral curtains cover most of the wall area in our 34 footer with twins. The vinyl covering in the other areas do not seem to radiate the cold that much.
