Just adding what's working for me so far. I'm removing the vinyl too. I already removed the inner skin so I just lay it flat and brush on the Jasco. I brush on Goof Off gel on the glue residue but ran into domes problems here because just wiping with paper towel was pretty tedious because the it would dry out. I solved that by using a squeezee to wipe off the Goof Off. Before, I had to reapply the Goof Off up to three times, but the squeezee gets most of the glue and Goof Off slushee and I just need to wipe down once.

Almost done stripping mine. Jasco Paint & Epoxy Remover to take off the Vinyl, Goof Off to get the remaining glue and WD-40/Mineral Spirits to shine it up. It's cool weather here so we found using a small portable heater pointed at the Jasco for 20 minutes activated it to do it's job.

ID:	287663Ive been using this and the Jasco too. It actually works very well. If you have a hot day paint it on and leave it for 20 minutes, few hours or over night. It bubbles and peels right off. Jasco works too. I've been using the a combo of both because not all the areas are easy to get the vinyl off.

Squeege what a good idea. Way better than wasting paper towel.

We have a '76 31' airstream. The wallpaper/vinyl looks similar to the previous poster with the '75. This airstream was in really good condition, but some of the vinyl has come loose in places; not the outer walls, but some of the inside walls, and under the overhead cabinet above the refrigerator. I am wanting to paint the airstream, not going to stay with the gold and brown 1970s look. I am absolutely not wanting to remove all interior walls, and I would really like to just paint over the vinyl in as many places as possible. Several questions I have: What kind of paint would be best? I live in South Eastern USA, zone 8, so it will be warm and humid inside this camper for a good portion of the year. Should I remove the vinyl just in the areas where it is starting to come loose? Would it be better to try to reattach the vinyl? If so, what kind of adhesive would be best? The bottom line here is that I am trying to give my camper a face lift, not a complete re-do, not seeking perfection, just cuteness But I do want what I do to last for awhile, so I am willing to spend a little more time right now if the rest of the wall vinyl is going to be dropping off as soon as I paint it.
