Replacing Walls On A Scamp RV Camper Trailer & One Thing I'd Do Different

Replacing Walls On A Scamp RV Camper Trailer & One Thing I'd Do Different

When I purchased this 1984, 13' Scamp trailer, It was supposed to be a Light.. DIY Remodel.  I had NO IDEA it would turn into an entire gut job!

But, I discovered moldy smells that made it hard to breathe!

The mold was in the carpeting on the walls! Uggh

When I began pulling the carpeting off the walls, there was a type of pink bubble wrap behind the carpet, acting like an insulation barrier.  I left that up.  The carpeting actually pulled off fairly easy.  I had to use this tool in a few places to cut it out.

Below is a picture after the carpeting was removed from the door.

Before I began, I sprayed all the walls with this to kill any lingering mold.  The grey part is where I sprayed.

You can see from this picture I tried replacing the walls in the same pattern and HUGE pieces that came down. Here's what I used for the walls.

It was not easy dealing with these HUGE pieces!

When I got to the ceiling.. that's when I began a new process!  Cutting the material into wide, long strips! Brilliant!!!!

I used a ton of this and lots of straight pins to hold it up until it was dry.

I continued this process around the horse trough bathtub area and the door.
