I would like to redo the cealing and the walls in my camp trailer. The walls are wood paneled but the dark brown surface is flaking off. I would like to sand them down and put some type of wall paper on them. The ceiling is not bad but while I am doing the walls I would also like to cover the cealing. Our Motor Home has a nice cealing cover that looks a lot like fuzzy felt and we would like to put it on the cealing of the camper. Anyone know anything about doing this? Will wall paper hold up in a camp trailer? Does anyone know of a source for wall covering and ceiling coveriing for RVs? Any "lessons Learned" from those who have done this before?
I used construction adheasive (liquid Nails) and paneling from Menards, a couple of years ago, on the sleeper above the cab after I had gutted it. On my current 1990 Class C, the paneling is tired and worn. I found paneling at Menards that is thin and hardboard based, that looks very RVish and only $16 for a 4X8. I'm planning on Liquid Nails directly to the old panel.
Todd I rely on liquid nails for everything ! While working on my 95 Dodge custom van I use liquid nails for every wood joint and then either use screws or nails. Later on down the road you can be assured that there will be no squeaks or rattles. Best thing the Good Lord invented since Eve!
Don't laugh, but I've seen an interior wall treatment for houses that uses a good quality fabric and sticks it to the walls using (get ready) heavy starch. The fabric stays up until you get tired of it, or it gets dirty--and then can be pealed off the wall and laundered or replaced. I don't know a soul who has tried it in an RV, but I'm going to put some up on the previously painted interior of my vintage camper and see how it works...
Interesting; it would be great to find a covering that could be laundered and even changed fromtime-to-time. Keep us posted.
Did you get a chance to try this out?
