2018 Thor Freedom Elite Doghouse

Morning everybody! I have the little 24' Freedom Elite with the Ford E350 Super Duty V10. Looking to insulate the doghouse (and most likely the floor too) with the Fat Mat 3/4" hood liner insulation. Figured the thicker the better, right. My question, purely out of laziness, is does anybody know approximately how much of this insulation I'll need just for the doghouse? It comes it 34"x54" pieces, would 2 of these be enough? Again, I'm asking simply I haven't taken the time to actually sit and measure the inside of the doghouse. Thanks for any help I can get, hope everybody's healthy and (fairly) happy!!

I insulated the doghouse on my E450 with the same size piece of Dynamat.

One sheet is plenty and I have about 30-40% left over.

The added insulation made a big difference.

Hey, did you tape the seams? What kind of tape if so?

I did not tape the seams but was able to butt the cut pieces right up against each other.
Cut a couple of small pieces to fill in a couple of gaps.
Pretty easy job.
