Cork wall lining?

Has anyone every used cork as a wall lining material in Boler trailers? I have a large roll of 4' wide cork that i was thinking about using inside my trailer. The walls have been stripped of all insolite. I was thinking of using contact cement as an adhesive. Perhaps a coat of Varnish over the cork after it has been applied. Any thoughts?

Thanks

Dan

If you're talking about cork board cork... I'd think it would get "crumbly" pretty quickly. I know cork boards don't take abuse well. Easily scratched and gouged. For the amount of work you're going to need to do, I'd find something that is going to last.... IMHO

I used a cork underlay on my linoleum floor. It had a plastic backing and seemed very durable. The floor is soft, warm and easy to clean. If you have similar stuff my worry would be if it was flexible enough to fit in the corners of the trailer. Definitely test the varnish idea out first. Curious to see if it works out for you.

Cheers,
Mark

I have made a number of cork /bulletin boards over the years-often attaching 1/4 cork to a soft substrate and have been impressed with how durable roll cork really is. With some finish on it would be even more durable. Personally I think it would look pretty cool too. Fitting rounded corners without the cork cracking could be the deal breaker-try it and see. If it works- post pics.

The various curves will make it difficult. TrilliumRV will have an Ensolite replacement available to ship on June 11, 2012:

I was also thinking about cork.

This Trillium news is great though!

I don't know if Tom from Trillium is coming up to the ON bolerama this year in July. If he is it could save you big time on shipping.
