Wallpaper stick to fiberglass?

Hi all! Got my 1995 Burro, about to remodel. Will post pics. I'm wondering if anyone has tried wallpaper on the fiberglass interior? I'm just thinking a strip down the middle. Thanks!

I don't think the wall paper paste'd hold. Maybe a "sticker" like a strip of vehicle wrap would work better.

You could probably use a sizing (primer for wallcovering) and what is called border adhesive (or "vinyl to vinyl adhesive"). Condensation in the trailer would be the issue you would have to be careful of.

Something like a grasscloth, would also be nice, and it isn't affected like paper (which almost always is vinyl over paper) by moisture, as it doesn't have the paper backing.

I install wallcoverings for a living, but every situation is differnt (as is every paper!) so you never know!
