How do I repair peeling wall covering?

we just purchased a 1980 excella, and there are a few small areas where the covering has seperated from the wall panel. is there some way to repair this without replacing the panel, or the covering?

the panels are woodgrain, and it was posted for sale, here, but youcan't really see it. i looked at all the pics, but no luck. it looks like woodgrain shelfpaper that has come loose

If it is just a small amount that has come loose around the edges then you might get a heat gun and pull it back into place and glue it(just at the edge). If you use some type of glue, and glue it all, it will look real bad, like water loged. Then there is always, doing something that covers it up. Like a greese splash guard if it is over the stove. I saw someone who only had it coming off in one place pulled it off then cleaned the glue off and painted it. It looked pretty good.

We are having the same isse and are just going to peel it off and paint it a cream/soft white color. I figure it will also lighten up the trailer as well.

i think that is what we are going to do, but it has been so long since we've been camping, we're going to wait a while
