They are not scratches... think of them as "Patina"...
The Mona Lisa has "Patina", and nobody complains...

You know Paula, they say Diamond are forever...
But Aluminum, is for life!

Is that the same thing as a beauty mark?

Life sentence?

I thought a life sentence was something like "...beauty is in the eyes of the beholden..."(or maybe that was "...envy is...")...

Ha!! You guys just wish it was Formica.

Take a look at the top of the wall, above the clock, next to the AC. You can see the vinyl with the woodgrain peeling back on the wall in my Excella. Formica would be a vast improvement.



The white blobs are where the PO tried, unsuccessfully, to glue it back down.

Great looking motorhome, though! I look forward to your progress.

Vinyl huh? Oh. I see......your MH looks like the brochure....almost new....so what do you do about peeling vinyl? Ours is peeling near the sink on the piece beside the forward couch. Thanks, paula

Well, for one thing, it's an Excella 34' trailer, but the walls are the same.

It really doesn't look that new in person. And it's a lot more cluttered today than when the photo was taken.

Tip: Clean up real good, take photos, and then only show the photos to people.

I often dream of removing the vinyl and replacing with real wood veneer.

Actually, that one bulkhead wouldn't be too bad, only the dinette would have to come out. The one on the other side would require removing the entire galley to get it to match. Then the ones in the bedroom wouldn't match, so I'd have to strip out the bath and the closets. You see how these things domino.

I think I'll dream about replacement some more for now.

Good point. I've been inside a late model Airstream where the owners painted the same bulkheads as in my photo a very pale green. It really brightened up the inside and looked very nice.

The wood tone on the cabinets

I like the medium wood tone on the sink cabinet and the valances.....but the wood tone vinyl is a little harsh....it is peeling by the sink countertop.........think there are just 3 places if I remember correctly.....trying not to be too critical......but I am not anywhere close to changing that.....have too much mechanical to do first.......smog, smog, smog.....and more smog.....paula
