1987 T1550 Interior Wall Paneling

Good morning,

Can anyone tell me where I can find replacement wall paneling and what color it is or should I say was?


Thanks,
Tommie

Good afternoon JohnnyBGood,

That may be the way I have to go. I think I found a couple of places that sells something really close but too expensive for me (about $210 for one 4' x 8' panel at one place).

Paneling years ago was very popular. Today it is hard to find.

I found this but it seems Menard's has not yet come south east enough
http://www.menards.com/main/paint/pa...inStoreId=3214

But it gave me a thought. If you can find something close at a good price on line at Lowes to Home Depot, they can ship it to the store for free pickup.

I found this at Lowes, not quite the right color but a start. https://www.lowes.com/pd/48-in-x-8-f...Panel/50106848

As an option, they do make bare wood bead board panels. I have seen some rebuilds use these. Then you stain to try and match. OR you can find them in pre-primed white. Wainscot also has been used. While the one I linked is like knotty pine, I have seen them with no knots, just bare wood in one of the lumber yards at the store. Then if you want to stain or paint, you can have without the knots.
https://www.lowes.com/pd/EverTrue-3-...-Panel/3056259

I did not look at all the HD or Lowes wall boards, there might be something there that may be able to be ordered and delivered to the store.

Thanks JohnB.

I can live with the one from Menards. I visited the manufacturer's website and according to the site, their products are also carried at Lowes and Home Depot. I will check at one of those to see if that one is available. In looking at the tasks ahead, I am thinking that I will need to attach the paneling to the replacement grids since I am not able to take out the cabinets. I can't get to some of the areas from the inside where the paneling needs to go.

Anyone have any other ideas?

Thanks,
Tommie

Wow, you backed into the mfg site. Cool!!! good digging. I'll have to remember that one for the future.

I agree, attach the new wall board to the new wood grids you are making. That is a good idea. The wall board will help make the whole camper stiffer.

As for the walls, you could always do what I did in 2002 with my 1976 Shasta. I didn't like the dark panel so I went to my Benjamin Moore paint store in town and picked up this commercial grade wall paper. It cost me less than 100 bucks to do the whole camper.

I would also go around the cabinets. You may have to add some scab wood to the existing right around the edges of the cabinets so you have something to nail to.

Thanks Sep,

I had considered wallpaper with a woodgrain pattern. I like the look of the wood. Call me old fashioned. I didn't think to check at any of the paint dealers. Thanks for the info.

Steve,

The commercial grade wall paper, do you mean the 4 foot wide very thick wall paper? This is about 4 times a thick as normal home paper.

I saw this at our work a few years ago when they remodeled. They where taking it off the walls. I was super impressed with the quality and durability of it. And it comes in many styles.

Question, the glue, did they make some kind of outdoor glue? The camper lives in below zero freezing to over 100F in the summer cooking in the sun. And in conditions of high moisture at times. For sure have to use the right glue. What did you use?

I may do something like this in mine some day as an overhaul.

Thanks

John

We had to replace some in our 85 and I found this at Home Depot. The color is pretty close but it has lines in it. You can't even notice the difference with the dinette put back and the curtains in.

Hello JTurner,

I think I did see that one on Home Depot's website, at least it looks like it. The Home Depot here does not have it. The closest one that has it in stock is about an hour away. It may be worth the trip to have what I want. I'll have to decide really soon. Thank you so much for the info. The picture helps a lot to see how it would look.

Tommie

JTurner,

Do you happen to remember the name of the pattern for the paneling you have?

Thanks,
Tommie

No, sorry I don't remember the name. It was two summers ago I think.

Did you look under the upper bunks? Our 1550 has the two upper bunks and there are two sheets of matching plywood under the mattresses as supports. They were just laid loose in there. We considered using them but they were not large enough for our wall, my husband wanted to use one piece.
