Yes, in my older Argosy the wood grained vinyl had bubbled, become brittle and come off in places; took me a bit of research but there was honey colored luan--not bad looking. Using a hair dryer, the woodgrain vinyl can be removed relatively easily where ever necessary. It can be replaced with new, unfaded vinyl or painted over. I'm considering filling the pores to make it smooth, sanding, and coating with a varnish. Luan wood can be quite handsome finished--I've seen furniture made from luan, or Meranti, or Phillippine mahogany, as luan is sometimes called. Has anyone heard of stripping down to the luan in ASs? Alternatively, birch veneer plywood is available to replace the luan in the extruded aluminum cabinetry and walls. Birch wouldn't need the pores of the wood filled prior to paint or finish. Check out Lowe's/HD for birch sheets as a start, if interested.
