2006 Safari Bathroom Wallpaper Source?

I have a 2006 Safari Anniversary Edition 23ft Airstream. One wall (closest to shower) in my toilet area has peeling wallpaper. So, looking to redo just that wall.....but....I need wallpaper to match, otherwise I have to redo the whole bathroom. Anyone know of a place to find the wallpaper? I've messaged Airstream and they say they don't know.
Thanks in advance..!!

Is the existing wallpaper able to be re-glued down?

No....there was no way to re-glue. I actually just spent the last hour slowly peeling it all off. It's 17 year all wallpaper...and I live in the Nevada desert where it cooks all summer..!!!! So.....i now have bare ply wood, that looks beter than than the peeling wallpaper. Plus.....I now have the old sample piece to take with me to wallpaper shops..!!!!

The wall covering in my parents' '75 Argosy was Wall-Tex. It was also used to make roller shades for the bathroom and kitchen as well as the shower curtain. I suspect that it was a stock pattern.

I had a similar problem with paneling in a vintage trailer, no match available. A possible solution for you — which worked out great in our case — is to intentionally get a contrasting pattern that looks like an intentional design. Much better than something that looks like a mismatch.

I like the contrasting paper idea....time to get creative..! Or, I just may do both walls in the bathroom. The paper on the right is stuck hard and could be papered over easily. Obviously the left is where my problem is. (I kinda like the wood look...but...it doesn't go)
I'll also do some googling of WallTex..!
Thanks everyone...! Happy Airstreaming..!

Wall paper

Hey! We have a 2007 Safari SE. Our same wall was peeling and I was able to glue it back up. Ours was not peeling that bad. But, I like the looks of the wood. If I had to do it over again, I think Iíd stick with the wood look!
One option not mentioned, try to paint the wood to the same color as the wallpaper on the opposite side. Or as you stated, just wallpaper both sides with new wallpaper! Problem solved!?!
