interior walls and ceiling- paint? carpet?

What do people suggest for interior walls and ceiling? My boler has recently been covered in a thin carpet-like material before I bought it. some areas are great but I think he was drunk doing other areas, so thinking about tearing it all out but have no idea what to put in its place? Should I just sand and paint it? Wallpaper? Suggestions?!?

I've heard people talk of ensolite? Please help as I want to pull out the carpet and start the interior asap.

You're in for a LOT of work. Ryan is modding/building/rebuilding a Trillium Sportsman. Below is a link to his thread. It's long, but you'll learn a lot. He posted where he bought the ensolite, what he did to prepare the walls, how he hung it and what it cost. YIKES!

Rebuild of a Trillium Sportsman

Best of luck!

Looks like Ryan did ensolite. Too difficult for me I think. I have a few calls in to some carpet places nearby to see if they would consider replacing the carpet on the walls/ceiling in mine... we will see how many $$ they want...

Remember, the trailer doesn't have to be perfect, it just needs to be perfect for you. I haven't seen pictures of the interior. But, once you open the door and stop outside.. that is your livingroom and you can't beat Mother Nature.

Maybe consider it a hardsided tent until you can get it the way you want it on the inside. I don't know too many people that spend hours sitting around in a tent...
