I had an IH Savannah Tio, which was ok, but was not particularly well insulated for winter use.

Perhaps someone more knowledgable than me will come along and I am not able to state specifically what British PVC manufacturers use, but.......
I believe that the Rapido vans ( V55 ?) use a custom made pu (or similar) complete liner that fits properly, and would eliminate the cold spots that would occur by using loose fitting 3M type foil or Thinsulate liner that is often used. The Camperieve/ Dreamer vans use the same as they are a subsidiary of Rapido.
At the Paris show Cathargo were confident enough to exhibit a PVC body shell to show how well built their Malibu vans are.
This question has been discussed before and at that time that knowledge pillar of the forum 'Derek ' supplied the above link to Rapido. Another forum member 'Veletron' owns a Camperieve van and also commented at the time.
How many Continental or British manufacturers have upped their specs and methods to follow suit, I don't know.
Several years ago the claimed benefits of Foil type multiple layer insulating materials was questioned because it seems that an air gap of 25mm was required in order for the reflective factors of these materials to work.......that was in the building/ self build industry and some folk have never been convinced of their performance.
