Proper Airstream Walls

Hey guys! I recently purchased a 1981 Excella II. Shes a beauty! Til you look in the bathroom... It was in the middle of a remodel and never got finished. Its just some studs and thats it. My question is: what would be the proper wall to put here? I dont figure drywall is the best choice. Would a thin piece of plywood be ok? Thanks guys!

Are you referring to a partition wall, skin, or a location that was perhaps covered with an enclosure of some kind? A photo or two of the condition you're needing help with would be helpful.

Most of the walls are out of 1/4 or 3/8 plywood. They can be rebuilt out of furniture grade plywood from any of you box stores. I will be rebuilding my bath area, walls, closets, and cabinets, and have been kicking around the idea of using 1/2" plywood instead of the 1/4". Added weight VS strength.. I have not come up with a decision yet.. Once you get it Pics would be great. Is this your first Airstream?
