What year trailers have mouse fur?

I'm wondering in what year trailers (what models?) mouse fur was used. It's difficult to tell from photos. Anybody know?

I don't know all the trailers/models/years that have it, but I know the Classics of from late 90's on have it on the walls. There are probably many more that I am not aware of.

As it was explained to me, it's the textured wall covering on some models of AS, instead of the aluminum interior. I have it and the ceiling is kind of a padded vinyl. Both are supposed to be good insulators.

Mouse fur is the common description for the stuff, but it is also known as "Ozite" and you can search on that name in Air Forums and find quite a few threads.

Our 2002 19' Bambi has mouse fur on the walls and ceiling. Much to the disgust of many, we like the stuff because of its insulating qualities when temperatures outside are below freezing.

In the late model Classics, it's basically carpet that is glued to the walls.

When we had our '75 23', my wife complained about the wall being cold (she slept on inside of the goucho bed), so I glued some carpet on that wall as insulation, and she quit complaining.

I believe it started in late 1993 when the body style changed.
We once owned both a 1981 and 1989 trailer with the vinyl coated walls. It was easy to clean, low maintenance but a bit more noisy.
Our 1994 model has the carpeted walls and headliner on the ceiling. It is much more quiet and seems to insulate a bit better. I like it better but I will hate it when it starts to fall.
Though not 100% successful I have done some cleaning of the walls with a spray bottle of Oxyclean and a shop vac.

My 81 has some mouse fur ascents along the walls and on the valences. I am gradually replacing the stuff. The walls are the vinyl stuff.

Our '04 has the furry walls. We appreciate them. Personally I would find it difficult to sleep with twin beds against a cold aluminum wall.

Yes, our '08 22' Safari Sport has it and yes it has insulating qualities including sound.

I recently saw a vinyl ceiling with vinyl covered buttons to keep the ceiling from coming down. Looks great! The owner said a guy that heads the Georgia AS unit puts the buttons in. Thinking about looking into to getting that done.
