Camel Suede Wall Covering

Has anyone found a source, other than Airstream, for the suede fabric wall coverings on the 2014 Interstates? I can order by the sq yard via dealer from AI at $41/sq yard. Looking for other sources for small quantity?

It's more like velvet (cloth), not suede (leather), so you might be able to pick up some at any crafts store. If you need a sample for comparison purposes, you may be able to snip off a small piece where there's excess on the back side of a panel around a window opening.

Have a look at this item on eBay.

Microsuede Faux Suede Fabric Upholstery 58" Wide by The Yard | eBay

The parchment color looks pretty close to the stuff on walls of my 2013. Price is very reasonable at $5.90/yard.

I've used 3M spray adhesive.

The Airstream method "appears" to be to stretch over the panels and attach on the back side. Not sure if they staple or glue on the back side.

Jo Ann fabrics might be another source.

I did not dream up the "sided" name, it is on my Airstream manufacturer sheet. Also, I was at JoAnn Fabrics and they have no idea about where to get the cloth. I was merely posting this question in "case" someone in the AI world has experienced this before and had a brand/model name of the material. I will find it or a close second myself. Thanks for comments.

Jo-Ann can be great - or not - depending on the experience of the people working in the individual stores.

I would go to an auto shop that specializes in car upholstery and headliners. My next choice would be a home furnishing upholsterer. Most are busy with big jobs and don't want the piddly minor stuff like yours, but they'll sell you the fabric and give you general hints on how to put it on.

I thought I typed "suede" and it must have autocorrected my type. Someone commented when I referred to my wall covering as suede, but that is what AI calls it, not me!

That was me, and it wasn't a criticism, merely a suggestion for possibly finding the material more easily. Airstream calls it "suede" but fabric stores would call it velvet.

Take a looksee here: Auto and Marine Fabric, Tops and Trim - Outdoor and Contract Fabric

I picked up a suede like material for a headliner replacement for my car last year for a very reasonable price (current looks about 18 per yard). It was a synthetic material and has held up well and was fairly easy to install. Its also foam backed so it has a cushioned feel to it and you can attach it with 3m headliner spray adhesive or attach it from the back and stretch it over the front.

I also intended no criticism. I was just confused as it sounded like you didn't like the replies, all of which were just trying to help.

I agree with AI -- it's artificial suede also know as Microsuede.

Cheers,
