Interior Wall brackets

So...am renovating an '85 sovereign, center bath, needed to replace an interior curved wall that goes in front of the black pipe that goes from below the floor to the roof (from the backwater tank I assume). The old wall looked like crap, and the original bracket that held it up was all beat up.

So I ordered one of those "bendable" wall brackets from Vintage Trailer Supply, but I can't for the life of me get it to perfectly bend to the wall without gaps between where I screw/rivet it to the wall...it actually buckled a little in one spot where it bends the most.

Any better ideas on a better bracket? Or can I cover up the gaps between this bracket and the wall with some kind of caulk or something?

Thanks!

I think the gaps are common in all trailers, even mobile home trailers. This is usually addressed with a gasket on the edge of the interior wall. I can see light from the bedroom coming through the gap in the wall by the bathroom sink. I once lived in a house trailer where I could see the light from the laundry room shining through the gap in the wall in the bedroom. If it's just a fraction of an inch let it ride.
