Vinal wood walls
Does anybody know how to reglue vinyl walls?My vinyl over wood walls between the bath and bedroom is peeling. It was sitting for 17yrs when I bought it and everthing else was in good condition except for that and peeling under the upper cabinets.
The AS is a 1976 rear bath overlander. Any thoughts,I hate to have remove it!

tinman. if you're speaking of the vinyl wallpaper on the wood tub/shower wall, I don't know of any way to reglue it but maybe someone else will.
In a '60 Overlander with that peeling I formerly owned, I removed it, stained the wall and applied several coats of marine grade Varathane. It turned out very nice.

I suppose vinyl wallpaper adhesive would work, but I think I would try 3-M spray ahesive, or a similar product.

Clothes iron
I have not done what I am about to suggest to an Airstream wall, but it would have been in my early thoughts if I was in your situation:

How about a clothes iron on low to medium setting? Place a dish towel on the peeled area, and iron the towel with a circular motion. The dish towel will protect the vinyl from getting too much concentrated heat.

Hold the starch though...
