    Hi guys this is my first post after introducing myself so here goes.I've just started to convert my minibus into a motorhome, most of the furniture and fitting are coming from an old tourer. I have been looking high and low forthe cladding boards that caravans/motorhomes are fitted out with inside without much success does anyone have any ideas on where i can get this stuff or should I just board out with hardboard/mdf/ply and wallpaper? Any advise would be most appreciated.:thumb:

    I have converted two now. I used 3mm ply wood in the current one and then used trunk liner. It doesn't look as professional as a flimsy but it has a warmer feel and sounds less like a box inside.

    hi. these days the manufacturers use vohringer boards but its very expensive.
    having used hardboard years ago its much better to use 3mm ply . i wallpapered mine 11yrs ago .its getting ready to be done again. in recent years when doing truck campers have used my mates duraflake system. its a resin based covering . that as coloured flakes blown on .you can also have a glitter mix. its water tight we use it in the shower rooms and even as a wet room. you see it in hotels rooms or recreation centers . my mate seems to be the only one doing it round here .he tells me others do it around the country. have thought about doing mine in it but so far havent made my mind up. some of you may know purple bob with the purple daf 45 his was the first one we did in it still looks nice 5 yrs later.
