We just bought a replacement for our totaled 96 Bigfoot. Our new to us Bigfoot has peeling, seperating wallpaper. Anyone ever deal with this? What did you do? Did you replace it or put new wallpaper up? Pictures?
Thanks, Francine

Francine..

My trailer doesn't have wallpaper in it, so I can't comment on a fiberglass trailer, but my childhood friend's parents have a 1996 Jayco Motorhome that her father has replaced the dated wallpaper in there a couple times. Having done wallpaper in my own home on several occasions, I asked him about it - he claims to have installed it the same way as you put it up in a home, paste the wall, the paper, and he put it up. Looks great too!! He's a pretty handy guy....

I think you are asking IF you need to take the "old" wall paper down first.................That would be a yes. As for the second part of your question...yes you can wall paper in a camper and yes,you would do it the same way you would do it in the house.

Now some just might jump in here that knows more about wallpaper work than I do and be able to help you more. I have never done a camper,but we have done our house. My DSIL did her moter home,but she just did a boarder the same size she had already and it was on a new MH

Are you asking if Bigfoot owners tried to re-attach the existing wallpaper, as opposed to installing new wallpaper?

Hi, Francine.

I wallpapered a small area of our old Bigfoot. It was actually paneling with really dated "wallpaper" on it. We primed it and then installed the wallpaper. We didn't have any problem with the original wallpaper coming off. It was in fine shape, just ugly. I must admit that it was kind of a pain to do it, but I've never been all that good at wallpapering. It was much better anyway. Here's a link with some pictures from an earlier posting:

I hope this helps. Good luck!

Maureen

I think the existing wallpaper is too far gone, it would be harder to reattach then to redo it.
