Aluminum would be a poor choice. You would have to insulate the two metals from contact, which is difficult at the fasteners. I supoose if you have the metal already at no cost it might be worth it if you don't plan on keeping it for a long time. I would try and get electrogalv sheet steel. Its usually got a green hue to it.
Failing that, regular galvanized steel, followed by regular sheet steel. I'd aim for somewhere in the 16 to 20 gauge thickness. I personally have found that 20ga was thick enough.

I have a question though, in closing off the Windows we popped all we wanted out but what is the recommendation for paneling it off aluminum or steel sheeting to screw on the exterior?
Also, what are the recommendations on a/c units in the bus? I.e. Window mount or roof mount?
Thanks for the input!
