My wife had been saying the same thing you were posting in here. The walls were to dark and she wanted to paint them. Once I put in the new vents and the sunlight shined in on the walls it did not look dark and dreary anymore. It made the whole interior jump with beauty and style. We put in a ligher laminate floor with wood grain marks that matched colors on the wall. This light floor and the solar vents for our old vents with upgraded lights made a world of difference.
I am am a big believer in making the coach your own but I feel for myself if I keep the interior as orginal as possible I can sell it easier if I need to.
I will post a picture for you to look at. This picture has all the curtains closed except the bathroom where the light is shining in and the vista windows. The rest of the light comes from the vents above.
One more step, to a "FINAL" finish.
Clean the walls so that they are chemiclly clean.
Apply 2 coats of Future Floor Acrylic.
More light, makes the walls and ceiling show their true texture, and the cost? About $10.00. Yep, $10.00.
Advantages? Far nicer looking walls, much more light, and "NO" maintainance is ever necessary, along with no smell after a couple of days.
Then have before and after photo's taken at one end of the trailer, and showing the the other end.
Takes maybe a weekend, to do it right, but then you have completed a job, that will never need any attention.
And I will bet that "MAMA" will even be happier.
