Looked like a drowned rat going from the shop to the camper. I now have the (Pergo) flooring all installed!
You won't need luan - just use posterboard. To get enough length you'll probably need to join sections of posterboard together. Just overlap them about one inch and hot glue them together. After you've got the backing made, you can either install snaps through the posterboard (add a small square of duct tape, or adhere a scrap of material to the posterboard to make the snap installation more sturdy, and add polyester fiberfill and material to the front folding it over the edges of the posterboard. Glue it to the back of the posterboard with a hot glue gun.
You could also install the snaps through all layers if you want them to be visible.
They are standard "large" snaps and you can get them at any fabric store. To get them lined up correctly take an old lipstick (ask your wife which one she wants to sacrifice!) and daub each snap on the wall, then carefully align the posterboard backing and thump each snap. It will show you exactly where to install the snaps.
If you want to be fancy you could cord the edges, but that's another sewing lesson.
PS: Oh, and with a CCD one does worry about cold aluminum, warm flesh! The salesman who took my order tried so hard to talk me into a pillow topper mattress... but I didn't want my butt to be raised so high that I could inadvertantly give the campground a "pressed ham under glass MOON".
Cold aluminum isn't the only hazard is it?
