fabric on the walls?

i am curious to see if anyone has tried adhering fabric to the interior walls? yes, i know this may make some of you cringe... but have you seen the airstream on ??? it's amazing but i cannot figure out how they were able to get the fabric and metal ceiling tiles to stick to the fiberglass walls... any suggestions? any advice? much appreciated!

Not sure about the king of "glue or cement" that is used but we saw a 2007 75th Anniversary Edition that had carpeted walls and we know that the interior walls are still aluminum.
Hope that someone else jumps in with more practical solutions...
Good luck

3M has spray adhesive 77 which does well sticking fabric to the walls and ceiling. You need to carefully stretch the fabric to the curved 3d walls to prevent having folds. The domes would be particularly difficult with some non-stretchy fabrics.

Someone put hull liner on the interior of my 56 Cloud. Not that I like it, but it is stuck on there extremely well.....with what I don't know. It seems to provide insulation and definitely sound deadening.
