first of all - welcome and congratulations fellow Play Pac(er)!
there aren't many of us ... and to have someone else show up helps our little group since your Play Pac may help reveal new secrets!
unfortunately, i cant address your particular question regarding original wall coverings as ours had some serious renovation. however, i can tell you a little about what ours went through. the previous, previous owners did some crazy stuff in ours, so the previous owner covered the interior (minus windows
and the bathroom) with 1 1/2" think polyfoam insulation. they then covered the entire insulated surface with craft paper dipped in glue - paper mache so to speak. they covered that with a few coats of nice paint
and viola - we have an amazingly cozy interior that is relatively easy to maintain. we slept on Sonoma Beach recently next to a big brand new 22' stickie travel trailer - and they had it completely buttoned up with the heater on - we had our front window and vent open all night and slept like babies! i cant say enough how important good insulation is. we plan to add some trim work to tie it all together but thats our Play Pac in a nutshell.
i understand original Play Pacs came with ensolite and i can see a peek of it in our kitchen cabinet. but i cant offer any advice. i do know Meghan and Jim (two other active Play Pac owners here) have done some great work to restore their Play Pacs which are largely all original. perhaps they will chime at some point?
equally as important, there is a wealth of experience and creativity here among the good folks on this forum. since we are so 'lucky' to be in the dozen or so club ... we are also limited to Play Pac-centric repair and renovation info. fiberglass rigs for the most part, all share so many characteristics so do not be put off by the lack of specific info. things like electric, solar
, glass repair, towing, leaks
, etc ... everyone here deals with it and you may find the tip that helps you from a Scamp
or Compact owner - so be sure to check out what everyone else is doing.
also, i would go the home page, click on Play Pac in the list of fiberglass eggs, and then systematically go through each thread that shows up below. i was able to learn a lot about these before ever posting a single question.
finally, please post some photos - everyone loves photos and some of the seasoned pros here might see something in your rig and be able to help out or save you a lot of time. welcome aboard!
