I think both Wilsonart and Formica stock an Aluminum Laminate.

Formica Corp Aluminum Laminate

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Hey Love Shack ---
I think we'd all have clean aluminum walls (well, a good deal of us) if it was as easy as spraying fabric softener and peeling the vinyl covering off!!!

I typed "strip vinyl walls" in the SEARCH function of this forum and found tons of threads on such. You will probably find more if you type "polish interior walls" too. Here's a start for you but, as you've already seen, there are alternatives.

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f46/vinyl-covered-walls-18578.html

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f184...kin-31356.html

If you decide to paint your vinyl walls, you should use the SEARCH function again to find what products we have tried and the pros/cons of that route. There is sooo much info on this forum - almost any thought you have has been covered a few times! Totally awesome. I have planned every aspect of my trailer time and time again - though I haven't actually done it!

Oh, and just for fun, here's another inspiring thread for your viewing pleasure....

I used Wilsonart copper laminate in my kitchen in the house I built. Glue it on with contact and trim it like any other high pressure laminate:-)

Alsa Corp killer chrome...check them out online. Anyone willing to try it out on some stripped and prepped interior panels?

In this series of restoration videos is a segment on covering interior walls with brushed alu sheet metal, hope it helps.

Thank you, that looks pretty good to. I wonder if a less experienced person would have the same results though?

Love shack,

I don't know if you have come across this series of DIY stuff, but this particular episode is maybe something you could do to achieve the svelte look of metal inside, without breaking the bank.

YouTube - kenwinning's Channel

Have a look. There are lots of great ideas in the series, well worth a watch...
