How to do?

I need ideas on how to remove the adhesive from the inside of my 2000 Bambi. I have removed the carpet from the walls. Does anybody have any ideas or done this before?

thanks pg<><

Although I have not removed adhesive from an Airstream, I have from other stuff. I make and sell EVA grips for paddles and windsurfing booms. One of my customers said he tried gasket remover to get contact cement off of windsurfing boom arms. It's available from auto parts stores. He said it was fantastic at getting adhesives like contact cement off of surfaces, way way way better than lacquer thinner, etc. Might be worth a shot.

So Long!

Try 3M adhesive remover.
I also used Zylene, which is sold by the gallon (about $19) and may be more cost effective.

I use a product called Bestine and get it by the gallon at art supply stores. Works on most adhesives without any residual issues.
