Clay or stucco walls

I'm restoring a 68 Safari and am thinking about doing clay or stucco walls (probably stucco). Does anyone have experience using either of these?

do you plan to travel with your AS, or will it stay still... cause, not that it was my job, but I learned stucco, tadelak... and there is almost no way to make those finish last in a travel trailer.
Way too much vibrations while in motion the finish will fall apart.

If your 're talking about masonary stucco, I wouldn't think it would work to well for a few reasons. First weight. 2nd it doesn't have a good adhesive property to stick to substrate, and 3rd too brittle resulting in cracks. You maybe thinking of more of a texture paint to achieve a rough surface, some times it might be called stucco, that might work.

I don't know - I'm thinking Clay AND Stucco . . . and maybe some wood trim around the windows . . .

There are synthetic replacements for both - dryvit is one they layer over foam board insulation on high rise buildings...

Ummmm no… Straight from the land of enchantment NM where almost every house has a stucco finish…. It will not stick, and even if it did it would crack in a million pieces the first bump you took. Hell I can’t even get it to stay on my 50 year old house!

ha ha! nmgt350h.... But he mentions wood trim around the windows...those old 'half round' cedar fence posts, make the most beautiful wood when stained. I have a wood box next to me that is made out of it. AND there is another slideshow on here somewhere - where the fellow did the whole interior of his with wood and did an amazing job too.
