[QUOTE=robynmacquarrie;612632 I am wanting to bringten up the inside of the Boler and I want it to match the surface in the "kitchen" section. Does this rat fur serve as insulation. I am thinking of covering the walls with marine vinyl. Should I not? Should I put the vinyl over rat fur to benefit from the insulating fuction of rat fur. Should I pull it all down and put some form of insulation between the fiberglass and marine vinyl.
I am with Jon on this one. I would learn to love the Rat Fur. Camp in awhile, it will not take long.
Can not tell you how many people there have been here over the years who have jumped in fast and removed the rat fur only to wish after they fact they had not - due to the cost and time it took to replace it. Not to mention more than a few have had issues with the new wall covering they installed staying up on the walls after a short time.
When I first purchased my Scamp
I also really disliked the Rat Fur. But once I added new curtains and cushion covers and kitchen accessories to brighten it up it became unnoticeable. At least to me. I also like the feel of it - particularly if your the party the ends up sleeping on the wall side of the trailer. If you ever camp in situations where you have a lot of condensation you will be happy you have rat fur on the walls vs vinyl. The headliners does not hold moisture.
As others suggest you can hang VERY light
items on the headliner using velcro and some have used really small curtain hooks with success but others have found that hanging items will sometimes lead to the wall liner pulling away from the wall with time.
At the end of the day I learned to love the rat fur in my Scamp so much when I purchased my current trailer I was not at all turned off by the fact it had a marine headline on its walls in the bed and dinning areas, rather than the flat surface walls the same manufacture also offers.
