Does anything stick to ensolite?

Hi all, I'm really hoping someone can help. The original ensolite in my 1974 Eco is in bad shape. I've read plenty of forum posts advising against removing it and would like to avoid doing so, but we really want to add new/more insulation and cover the walls. We have a roll of what is essentially vinyl-backed reflectix that we want to put up over the existing ensolite. But .. we can't find an adhesive that works. I'd there anything that would get this to stay in place? Had anyone done anything similar?

This is a link to the product we are trying to put over the ensolite for reference:

SmartSHIELD -5mm 48"x50ft Reflective Foam Core Insulation roll, Cold and Heat Shield, Radiant Barrier, Thermal Insulation - Engineered FOIL / White Film

Any help would be very much appreciated!

It seems to me if I understand correctly, you want to adhere an insulation on top of the ensolite? What ever you find that would adhere well enough would destroy the ensolite trying to remove what was added.
For resale that [could] greatly lessen the resale value. I wouldn’t want a covering on the ensolite if I were buying. Just a thought

Call the manufacturer and see what they suggest. We re-did the interior of a Captain trailer, closed cell foam first, then boat hull liner on top of that. The foam manufacturer told us what spray glue to use (some glues would dissolve the foam).

He also said to just throw out the spray gun - not worth the cost of the solvent to clean it 😯
