Insulating e350 passenger van

Hi all,
After years of borrowing my dads SMB I finally bought a van of my own. Just started converting a 2006 e350 passanger van eb and have seen many different opinions about insulating between the double walls. Spray foam and fiberglass seem to be frowned upon for builds but I can't think of anything else to fit in the tight, hard to access, cavitiy.
I mainly plan on using the van mainly as a weekender but plan on spending time in the snow and would love to stay as warm as posdible without running heater all the time. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Why would you go and buy your own van if you have a SMB readily available to borrow? Like a boat and a swimming pool, the only better than owning a van is having a friend/relative you can mooch one off of! :-)

You may want to consider thinsulate. Easy to stuff in nooks and crannies.

I went with UltraTouch rolls from Home Depot or Lowes. Non-reflective pads trimmed from the roll for the spaces between door cavities and the walls right under the windows, those I sprayed 3M adhesive to stick and followed with Tyvek paper. For the interior roof I used the water heater blanket from UltraTouch, relective backing and 2" thick, went with 18"x 18" overlapped sections so it wouldn't sag, also 3M sprayed adhesive. The floor and external roof I used Chassis Saver as my first set of coats and Monstaliner as final; after that I also placed sound deadening material on the floor and wheelwells.
