My 'new' '84 Scamp
13' has the 'elephant skin' ensolite interior (no 'rat fur'). While very 'grungy' with lots of mildew & assorted other minor stains, it is pretty well intact & seems to be firmly affixed to the shell. The seam tape is mostly all missing but that is replaceable. The roof vent/escape hatch had apparently broken & leaked so the PO replaced the dinette floor, sealed the vent, & it is pretty well weather proof now. I've searched & read all of the threads I can find about cleaning/replacing or painting
ensolite, sticky ensolite, etc., but not all my questions were defnitively answered.
I plan to temporarily remove all the inside cabinets, closet, seats, etc., clean the interior thoroughly, then paint
the ensolite before reinstallation of 'furniture'. Wanna do the ensolite in either a light
'sand' or possibly very light
gray color, perhaps even an 'off white' or ivory. Even if I'm able to successfully remove all the stains/mildew (doubtful??) I'll use a good primer/prep such as Kilz before painting
. Is the Kilz in spray cans compatible with the ensolite?
I have a low pressure, high volume compressor & spray 'gun' so I may be able to use liquid Kilz or another anti-fungial under coat rather than spray cans (oh my aching hands)? Can anyone recommend a good paint
that will cover the ensolite & stand up to RV use?
It's still winter here & I don't have an indoor, heated shop so most all work will hafta wait 'til spring but I figure I can start planning & acquiring supplies now, SonicScrubber, cleaning chemicals, etc.
Also have questions about repairing holes (drilled for screws'n such) in the fiberglass shell but I'll put those in another thread.
This is what a lot of the interior looks like now -
