What do you mean? Does it not have wall covering already (rat fur or elephant hide)? Are you rebuilding it? Or are you just talking about decorating.. in which case I suggest putting nothing on the wall.

I would sure go with the same thing that all current day Scamps have.. Reflectix® type insulation and marine headliner. Both can be sourced from Scamp (Evelands) or elsewhere.

I would also read up a lot about how to go about it from people who have done it - apparently its hard to get the cuts right. I do recall that if you are removing it, it was suggested to save the old pieces as a template. I guess it would be too late for you now.

I will be using the Reflectix just not sure what to use over that. I did not have a pattern. Sure wish I did, the rounded corners are what Im worried about. what ever I use will have to have some stretch in it to make it look right, at least thats what i'm thinking.

Sound reducing, highly mold and mildew resistant, soft to the touch, fairly easy to cut. What else could you want? Headliner

But elastic it is not.

Have you called Scamp and see if they would sell you the pieces to fit your 13 footer? They have always been accommodating when they can.
Good luck!
John

Yes they will (shipping might be a bit much).. the word "Headliner" in my prior post is a link to the rat fur in the Scamp store.

There are marine headliner products with less “fuzz” and different colors (mostly shades of beige and grey neutrals) online or through a local marine upholstery shop. I’d personally go with something a bit smoother.

I camp with three females, and the rat fur tends to collect hair. A minor issue, really. Overall I’m very happy with the performance of the factory lining. But if I were redoing the interior lining...

I’d use foam to insulate your trailer and dampen sounds as well.

Closed cell foam is a good lining, but without a topping of some kind, it is soft and easily damaged. Ensolite (no longer made) had a bonded top layer of textured vinyl that made an extremely durable shell lining.

Escape is using a similar product with a smooth vinyl top layer, but I’ve never heard where they get it, possibly a marine supplier.

Closed cell foam is trickier to install than the foil bubble/headliner sandwich used by Scamp and others, but the end result is effective, durable, and easy to clean.

Actually Ensolite is still being made. You can get it faced or not faced. You just can't get the version with the "elephant skin" facing.

It's not cheap though:

Interesting. I knew a similar product was still being made, but I didn't know it carried the trademark Ensolite name. I assume it's now being made by other companies under license.

Unfortunately, it is faced in black vinyl. Looks like that's the only choice.
