Wood Grain Vinyl Cabinet Wrap.

The wood vinyl wrap of my 2002 19' Bambi has started to peel off cabinets. I have attempted to procure replacement vinyl self adhesive materials to replace those that have detached but after two attempts have not found suitable wood grain vinyl which comes close to matching the original finish. Does anybody have the OEM product identification for this material and a source of supply or an alternate solution?

I know faux wood finishes are all the rage in RVs, but I never really liked faux anything as a matter of principle -- it always came across as tacky, literally, as you need tac spray to stick it to the OSB or whatever the core is made of.

One idea we used in my trailer: procure some inexpensive aluminum flashing (or copper plate) and use a combination of tac spray and some pop rivets to secure that to your cabinetry.

We think it looks cool, goes GREAT with the AS aesthetic, and brightens up the whole space. Because of it's reflective sheen, it goes with anything!

You could also use some formica with contact cement if you have a steady hand and trust yourself. Formica is available in about 2 million different finishes, I think.

Also: fabric to match or compliment upholstery or that faux white leather they used in the 1990s.

Also also: they make some fancy spray paint products that mimic stone or hammered metal -- that's easy for sure.

I stripped mine with a heat gun then applied wilsonart (formica) laminate to match a current model. For curved sections had to use vacuum bags to get a good seal. You can get everything u need from Lowe’s or Home Depot or an online. For bulkheads ordered vertical grade preglued.
