Seamless ceiling coating

I am intrigued by some of the beautiful and seamless interior shots posted by "Boler" owners. One of the links mentioned using a roll-on wallpaper-like covering (with the caveat that it was not great in damp situations. Great as long as my wife, the dogs and I don't breathe in the Bolder) another link was to a spray-on sound and insulating coating. I've had to pull off all the loose tape and spend hours using Silicone-B-Gone removing the caulking that was used to fill the spots where the tape had gone previously. I need to put a more appealing finish on the inside of my mobile treasure. Looking for tried and true suggestions.

Well, Nicolas, I have seen some - but not many that have put up a marine head liner. The vast majority of other Bolers I have seen (run fiberglass meets here in BC which Boler is the most popular trailer) normally use a caulking to fill all the seams and holes in the wall covering and then they use a oil based paint or a kitchen and bath type paint with a semi gloss finish that stands up to wear and can be washed.

Done properly the latex caulking and seam tape followed by paint looks good and holds up good.

Hi Nicolas, to FiberglassRV.

Some of those seamless interiors that you're talking about may have been where the seams have been filled with paintable caulk. The owners may have taken a dampened paper town and "textured" the seams to match the ensolite... then painted the entire enterior. I've seen trailers done like this and you're right... nearly invisible and seamless.
