Hello I'm new and have wall covering questions

Hi all!
I am new to this forum and new to having a fiberglass trailer. Just picked up a Minit, have gutted the whole thing, fiberglassed all rivot holes and imperfections (thanks to this forum) and finished painting it Saturday. I've attached pictures for all to see. I LOVE it!
I definitely have questions regarding the interior walls.

I bought vinyl wall covering to go over the reflectix but I am nervous to start applying since the corners are rounded. Anyone have a good way to do this?

Also not sure it if would look best running vertically or horizontally on the walls and the upholstery store lady mentioned overlapping the seams about 1/2"? Thoughts?

Also do you apply the vinyl and then install the windows or is it best to install windows and bump vinyl up to the window seal?

Appreciate any info!!!

Hi Michelle,
Welcome to the forum! Your Minit looks great, what a fantastic job so far.
I replaced the interior in my Boler a couple of years ago. I was fortunate enough to be able to use the original material as a pattern when I installed the new headliner. The corner pieces in my trailer were cut into pie shapes to fit without buckling in the material. I am not sure how I would have managed this without the originals though. Hopefully, somebody else has a solution.
As for the windows. Since you just painted and they are out, I would install the interior first. That is what I did, for 2 reasons: first it allowed me to cut out the window holes after I installed the headliner on the wall (much easier to manage a solid piece than it is to move around a cut sheet); second, If the interior covering is behind the window frame it is a much cleaner, more finished look.
Best of luck on your project, have fun and post lots more pics!
