We bought a 1995 16' Scamp
"shell" in November 2014. The only thing in it was the front fiberglass closet by the door and the start of a bed platform made by the previous owner.
We took it to a private shop over the winter to have wiring and lights
done, and enough of a structure (ultimately for cabinets) built in order to run the wires and put in lights/outlets.
Before we go any further, we need to figure out something for wall covering. Some folks have recommended marine grade headliner instead of rat fur, but I haven't priced either, to see which would work best for us, financially.
Approximately how many yards of fabric would we need to cover the ceiling and walls? We've talked about putting in more of a "back splash" in the future "kitchen" area instead of fabric. Has anyone done this? If so, what material did you use?
I'm going to call a local auto (and everything) upholstery shop this week just to see what they would charge to install it. Is there anything, in particular, that I should ask when I call?
We feel we can do the rest of the carpentry and other work ourselves (reinforcing and extending the bed platform; building a small space towards the front for a porta-potty; and building benches for a front dinette) but I'm just not sure we can tackle the wall covering.
Open to any and all suggestions! Thanks!
