Wallpaper failure in shower, what to do?

The wallpaper in the shower of my 91 25' excella 1000 is peeling (has peeled)from the top edges of the wall. Appreciate all your expert opinions re: how to repair/replace or what? Thanks

Been there

use trim pieces to secure the paper. shoe molding works well or quarter round. You can buy it in white or simulated wood at HD or Lowes, Cheap too!

I glued my peeling edge the best I could and then put a nice large bead of caulk on top of that using masking tape to make nice edges. Problem solved.

Glue is fine, but if you want more permanant fix, I saw real thin white fiberglass panels at HD they have a nice rasied finish on them.

If they were cut to fit and using liquid nails to hold it up and caulk around the edges it should last for ever.

About $30

I'm doing one wall in my shower with it soon.

Thanks for the suggestions. An additional observation: I didn't mention that the top edge has also "shrunk" and can't be forced back to the original edge to re-pin with moulding. As such, if I don't cover it with the Home Depot panels, I'l have to cut off the wrinkled section and leave a bare wall sticky glue surface. If that's the case, any other suggestions?

Yeah, I think wall paper in the shower IS the problem. I'll be interested to hear how the giberflask panels from Home Dopey work out. The entire bulkhead that hides the pocket door needs to be reinforced and/or redone.

I also want to get rid of all the horizontal molding in the shower running along the outside walls. Any idea on how to remove these and fill the holes? I'm assuming the interior skin is aluminum and if painted with something like POR gloss white would be a dandy shower stall.
