Any wall/ceiling carpet mods? Cover over carpet?

Hi, Im sure this has been talked about but I'm wanting to cover the walls with thin flexible wood or thin fiberglass sheeting. Anyone out there have an ideas or pictures?

Thanks in advance

I replaced the ensolite with reflective alum bubble foil and car material headliner for interior and for bathroom I used bubble foil and vinyl paneling. Here is my link to caddy shack site. https://www.facebook.com/17869471268...9056220982965/

One of the best mods on the walls I have made on the 16' Scamp was bolsters or pads along the side of the bed(s). I used some quilted fabric with batting and several layers of Reflectex glued together for stiffening it up to provide extra insulation in the cold weather.

If I had it to do over I would make it taller and thicker

Thats the main reason why I'm doing this. I don't like breathing into the carpet when I'm laying down. Along the bed walls and bunk bed is my main concern. Thank you for sharing

Hmmm... I’ve never had my face close enough to the carpet-like marine headliner in my Scamp to feel like I was breathing into it. I usually sleep on the small lower front bunk of our Scamp.

One thing that does happen frequently is I brush against it with my hand or leg. Personally I’d rather brush against warm carpet than a cool, smooth surface.

I like the quilted look and feel. With the "Rat Fur" or carpet you could attach with velcro hook side.
I used spray on glue to hold mine.
I thought I would be higher, but the bosters go down to the bed base and the mattress is a WalMart 8" foam cut down to fit.
If I had it to do again I would go to the trouble to fit it around the windows to make it higher. My experience is when it is cold this helps with the Ensolite being pretty cold.
I have also found that from time to time the dark color shows if there is a leak from a window to find.
(Fixed the leaky window).
I used some cardboard to cut a template and added layers of Reflectex to build thickness and insulation and then covered with a quilted quilt cut to fit.
A worthwhile addition and the Wife agrees.
I would consider using thin foam instead of the Refletex as the product does not really provide a lot of insulating effect it it is in contact with another surface.
That is why I call BS on the insulation claims of the manufacturers.

Grass Cloth for interior covering

My 83 Scamp was beyond nasty so I gutted the entire interior. I glued Reflextics from Lowe’s on the inside of the shell and then glued Grass Cloth Wallpaper over that (I disliked the rat fur).
In the corners I cut it into small strips and radius it out. Not perfect by looks cool!

A cool slick surface will encourage condensation. If you like water dripping on your face, well to each their own.

I used 3M heavy duty spray adhesive first to glue the Reflextics everywhere and then the grasscloth on top of the Reflextics.
