Furry walls

Any feelings about the wall covering in the scamp or casita versus the one in escape, or are they all about equivalent?
Thanks for your opinion!

I recently cleaned a couple of spots on my 16 year old Casita. I suspected they were aged glue/carpet adhesive, because they were near carpet seams and they were yellowish (maybe orange). To my surprise, they cleaned right up, with very little scrubbing. I used soap suds (minimize the amount of water put on the carpet fibers). Easy peasy. I probably should've vacuumed them first, but didn't.

Thanks, Alan! What does Ensolite look like? If it's not too much trouble, would you post a close-up of it?

For that matter, those of you following who wish to post photos of wall covering,I bet there are other newbies like me (trying to decide what to buy), who wonder about this.
(Although I bet there's a prior thread with photos which thoroughly explains this, if you old hands wanna point me to it!)
Thanks!��

Great, 16 years old rig, and you sound happy with your Casita's walls, Mary.
Thanks!��

Scamp has marine fabric over reflextix ,Casita has carpet, Escape has vinyl coated headliner material. While they are not equivalent they have each proven adequate.

As far as the tactile experience of each is concerned, the Scamp is the most pleasant to the touch.

Visual is more subjective but when combined with the cabinetry, the wall materials all come across as pleasing to the eye.

As far as hot/cold effectiveness they all work well for three season use.

The Scamp in my opinion holds a slight edge for sound deadening.

While every detail can affect the decision on which to buy, I don't think the wall covering bears enough weight on its own to be a deal breaker.
Here is a photo of the wall covering in my Scamp.

Escape uses a vinyl headliner material that has foam insulation bonded to the back side. Think it's R3 or 4 rated. Wipes off easily

I no longer have the trailer.... It is what many call elephant hide
Sort of a rubber/vinyl material
I'm sure someone will post a picture as it is very common

I'm probably going to see a local escape owner's rig next week.
You guys are sure right; liner's not a deal breaker in any case. Wife and I were just wondering about the wall rug, and hence the thread.

I'm thinking you meant "Floyd". If so, thank you for the kind words.

Yes, I've always found the Casita walls to be cozy and quiet. I'd much rather accidentally brush my hand against the wall than against the noisy mini-blinds... Some folks don't like the carpet, but we've cooked indoors with no residual odors (that we can tell); although we haven't cooked fish indoors.

I can't compare to Scamp or Escape, as I haven't experience with them.

To all who replied, many thanks! Your impressions were really helpful.

I saw a 2011 Escape 17B just last Sunday, and what a fine rig. On the issue of wall covering, the Escape's covering material is super-nice: a white, under-padded material (I believe it's called Ensolite) which looks very good, pleasant to touch, easy to clean. The owner is very happy with his trailer; camps happily with his wife in the back dinette/bed and two teenage kids in the front bunks. Each bunk is rated at 200#, which, I believe, beats the Casita's bunk ratings at 70# each.
