In the NV200, it is easy to insulate the roof and floor The sides and back, however, are a different story to me. There are already material panels on the lower back doors (no glass) and lower panels on the sides. What I am trying to decide is: do I keep the factory installed lower insulation and add something similar to the top panels or do something more substantial by replacing lower panels with something. If anyone has pictures or suggestions, I appreciate your time and advice.

I had factory fit windows, so the NS rear door is full of wash/wipe motors and the like - NO room at all for insulation! But the OS door had some, and I used the wool type (non absorbing) insulation. On both I then covered with a vapour barrier (3mm bubble insulation and silver foil tape) and then fixed ply with 4mm lining carpet.
Be careful of door mechansims as they do leak water (by design) so ensure the water has an escape channel.

I read that one way to insulate odd shapes is to insert a contractor/trash compacter bag into the openning and stuff fiberglass insulation into the bag. When complete, fold the ends of the bag over and seal with reflectix tape. this way you have the fiberglass completely sealed form vapor. Anyone hear of this before or try this before?.

Sounds like this could be worth a trip to the workshop, if just to ask them for ideas and see what you can manage on your own. I should think that you'd be able to discuss with them your ideas and see what the rates are like for their work and if they are willing to collaborate with you to get it down properly at the end of the day.
