I was thinking of putting hooks up and just hang thick quilts like a tent then bring them down when I travel .
 
Im putting in a wood stove in my short 4 window school bus for clean ( DRY ) heat where im at the store has generic wax logs for 99 cents each and im at the North west coast lots of drift wood every where .
Moving blankets are cheap
I like the idea of thick quilts for sound and insulation and and and...

Please be careful with the presto style logs. MOST if not All are not designed for use in any kind of stove.

I burn a lot of them when camping in addition to wood because ether easy . Please read the package
thanks Il be careful
I used blankets hung on the walls in my tent during winter. it works great. however the idea about burning the wax logs is a no, no. they will cause all kinds of problems in a wood stove. I know I tried. hardwood is best for a wood stove. highdesertranger
On my van, we were unable to put insulation in the sliding door. But my puppy's crate was right next to it and she has no fat at all. She would get very cold. When the temp was in the 20s and 30s, not only did I wrap her crate in down throws ($20 from Costco), I hung the throws, attached to the inside of the siding door with neodymium magnets. Worked quite well.

I spent part of one winter in az it was a very cold winter that year. my wife came up with ideal to hang blankets on the wall and it made a huge difference. Next year I bought harbor fright moving blankets and hung them and tucked them under my mattress makes a huge difference. Ionly did three sides but if it is relly cold I hang one on the front also.
We used quilts and tapestry rugs on all the castle walls. They work well enough.
