Vintage 1960’s Camper Redo

We bought this vintage camper in poor shape and gutted the whole thing. We basically started from scratch and moved forward. The only thing left was the kitchen cabinets. I will post inside pictures next.

    What type of material did you use to replace the rotted wood on the interior walls? I'm in the middle of the same type of vintage camper gut job and would like to add lightweight click lock laminate flooring to the walls. I am just unsure of what to put under it.

      Shelley, I am about to gut my very 1st trailer. It was suggested to me to use insulation boards and/or even some foam insulation with it behind the walls - no pink itchy stuff. Unfortunately it everywhere in mine. I have to replace both ends of the camper walls & hopefully that's it. Good luck!!
