Interior Wall Covering/skin

I just finished removing the interior furnishings of my 1979 Sovereign 31... dirty work indeed. I am planning a simple custom interior and need advice about the 'plastic' interior panels. I was hoping to paint and call it good, but it is fairly rough and I am now considering replacing the interior wall material. What are the best materials to consider? Is there anything that can be applied over the existing??? Any advice about installation will be most helpful also. Thank you silver bird flyers!

I too have stripped the interior walls out of my 1977 31' Sovereign and would like an alternate material for the walls. Would a vinyl wallboard work? I am leaving the curved endcaps and the center ceiling skin.

I have saved the aluminum skin that my son and I took out, but it's in rough shape and needs to be replaced, so we are looking for an alternate .

I finished my interior walls in the summer after I gutted the interior I scrubbed the walls 3 times and they came out looking brand new the vinyl covering was in real good shape. I then painted it with a exterior paint that adheres to vinyl ( Behr Marquis ) and it seems to be very durable so far during my reconstruction project.
