Default ultra touch denim insulation

Hello,
Has anyone used this stuff?

I'm looking at using this ultra touch denim insulation in addition to my stick on vapor barrier stuff that I put on the metal already.

I'm insulating my sprinter with it now. Easy to work with. No itching. Also using the sound deadening underlay material they sell. Has made a big difference in noise reduction.

I had a bunch left over after installing in a room remodel so I filled the fiberglass overcab area with it to cut down on heat from that severely sun-exposed area of the RV. Problem is it's 4" thick. Few places where you can take advantage of it. I put it behind the Microwave and now I am thinking I might be blocking airflow around it... It's also kind of dust making, the fabric dust is crazy, but only during install. And working with it is SO MUCH nicer than working with fiberglass...

If you look along the right margin of that page, you'll see other put-ups.
One is a 6-pack of 16 inch by 48 inch pieces for $36

Given the "case" of the first page, i happened to see the individual 8-packs at Lowe's this afternoon (before seeing this thread). So i'm sure you can get 8 *pieces* of the 24x93 batting (thus 16*8=128 sq ft) as a single purchaseable package.

Likewise, this is a single 48x75 inch piece foil-covered for $28: http://www.homedepot.com/p/UltraTouc...8752/202710039
... it's a water-heater blanket.

found a product here in Houston called Bonded Logic which is treated denim also. It works great as sound deadening as well. Used a little spray foam for filling in tight places. Used 1in foam board with foil on one side for roof to get a good radiant barrier. Van is really very comfortable.

Foil covered sounds like a nice bonus. The water heater blanket is also 2" thick, might that be a better thickness for van use?

I used it when insulating my van, awesome stuff to work with. I purchased it at Lowes locally.

I grabbed a piece at Lowes and submerged it in water and found it was like a sponge, made me very concerned about condensation issues.

I thinking that the water heater blankets would be best.
And possibly use foil tape on all exposed edges to seal the denim inside a full vapor barrier.
