Need to find a source for "wall cloth"

I am in the process of repairing the damaged interior on a recently acquired 1998 25' Safari. The original interior walls are covered with a glued down white fuzzy wallpaper that looks to be nylon or other plastic type material. My restoration guy refers to it as "wall cloth" but I can't find a source on the web.

Four questions:

1. does anyone know the proper name and manufacturer?
2. Is it easily replaceable?
3. Can it be spray dyed or painted? (wife would like to change bedroom)
4. If we were to consider removing and replacing, what material do most AS folks use?

I've checked the forums and haven't found answers to above

Thanks

pjm

Hi,

It's likely vinyl. You can paint it. Scuff it with rough sandpaper. Prime it with OIL BASED primer and then paint it. Or, you could try peeling it off and replacing it with something like this. Good luck with your project.

Thanks Gary:

It feels like it makes better sense to recover with a material as you suggest. Any idea how difficult stripping/pulling off the existing vynil might be?

Can you use the pre-pasted wallcovering that you referred me to "as is" of do you need to use any special paste?

BTW.. do you know the proper name or manufacturer of the stuff that I have?

Don't know the proper name but call the Mother Ship in Jackson Center Ohio and they can likely tell you what it was. Also, may give you some tips on removing it. I'd still "size" the wall even though it's not porous with Jasco wall/floor sizing/sealer (end of the floor tile aisle at Lowes). It will make it easier to take off.

If I was doing it I'd go with unpasted and use the clear paste that Sherwin Williams has. That's what I did 15 years ago in the hall and stairway of the house to hide prevent kids marks and bumps. it still looks good and has stayed in place. With that said, pasted would probable be OK also.

Taking the old off depends on what Jackson Center tells you it was put on with.

PJM. Here's what it's called...

It's OZITE Rib fabric, aka Hull Liner. Do a Google for OZITE (you'll see a few websites that sell it and you'll see my posts here on this fabric). You can buy it in several colors. I used it in my 1972 Sovereign. Looks great.
