1977 Overlander Wall Partition Replacement

I'm stuck. The Airstream is a 27' rear bath with center wardrobe and one twin bed. I've removed the wall partitions between the range and bed and
between the bed and tub. They are in bad shape and not re-useable. What type of partition material is recommended. I've been to the Home improvement store many times but have not been able to come up with a satisfactory solution. The old partitions are retained for templates. Please
recommend.

The correct answer to any question like that is, "It depends..."

Are you replacing a shower wall? In that case, you need at least that one side to be waterproof.

The next question is, "What do you want it to end up looking like?"

Yes, the shower wall and the wall on the other side of the plumbing stack. The wall brackets are there. The removed shower wall side has a vinyl type covering. One of the problems is finding the right thickness of panel to fit in the brackets. The panel
bracket between the range and bed seems to be 5/8" or 3/4" and I would prefer a
finished edge. I am not going to reinstall the accordion slider or the pocket slider
leading into the bathroom.

Keep in mind that you can sandwich two panels together, for waterproof on one side and decorative on the other....

Where do you find this product? My shower wall vinyl is peeling off the board. I also have the plastic veneer is peeling off another end wall in front next to frog. Do I have to replace the boards or can I somehow redo the veneer in both the bathroom and the kitchen? The board it's self is fine.

Try Lowe's or Home Depot. Look for the stuff they use in bathrooms.

Will it be the whole board or just the contact paper stuff? The boards are in good shape just have decorative color peeling a but at top.

I would think it would be thin board, as opposed to contact paper...

The stuff pealing off looks like contact paper. Maybe thicker

That's a good reason to put something different on this time, eh?

I'm not meaning to be brusque, I'm just posting from my phone.

When I re did my 64 Avion, I used thin plywood and the pebbled white fiberglass that is used in commercial bathrooms. It is sold at most of the home stores. Glued them together with contact cement. Then sanded the plywood on the edges that fit into the wall track so they would fit into it. Worked great, and looked great.

What cutting edge did you use on the white pebble stuff. Do you think
3M Super 77 would suffice ?

I saw a you tube video where the guy cut aluminum sheet and adhered it to the ex hosting was in the shower. Seemed pretty easy. He didn't remove the wall to do it. Just made a template and glued. What do you think?
