Alternative materials for skinning over windows?

I've seen a lot of people buying sheet metal to cover over their windows. I've also noticed a lot of commercially available Coaches, and RVs dont usually have metal siding at all.

Is there a cheaper, lighter material that can be used other than metal?

Preferably something that can be easily painted along with the metal parts so you cant notice, and hopfully providing insulating properties?

I started out with plywood and soon went with metal. Maybe something like polycarbonate would work but I doubt it. Metal is easy to work with and it's easy enough to add insulation behind it.
