For years the idea of wallpaper was a tacky way to decorate because the patterns available were not pleasing.
Well, that was then! Now, it’s become a great way to add texture, patterns, and character to any space.
Wallpaper has also come a long way with availability to patterns. Here is some ways you can add wallpaper in your camper to spruce up your campers interior.

Can you use Peel and Stick wallpaper in an RV?
We used a shiplap peel and stick wallpaper in our RV Bathroom.
Now, the wallpaper we used was white, so we decided to paint the wall ‘white’ before adding the wallpaper.
Just so you know, our walls were beige vinyl before painting them. I noticed when I tried to add the white shiplap wallpaper, the color of the wallpaper become faded. So by painting the wall first, allowing it to dry, then adding the wallpaper allowed the colors to be true.
Tip: Clean your walls before adding the peel and stick wallpaper to ensure the paper sticks and there is no dust.
Quick note: You can also use an extra spray adhesive for extra stick (if you don’t plan on removing it). Sometimes if you store your RV, the heat could cause the paper to peel. Although this has not happened to me, I have heard of it happening.
Can you wallpaper over the RV wallpaper?
This depends on if your wallpaper is a strip or covers the whole wall. If you have a wallpaper strip, it is best to remove that strip from the wall first. The reason being is so you don’t have any uneven lines in your new wallpaper.
Tip: Make sure your walls are smooth before application of new wallpaper

How to use Peel and Stick Wallpaper
I feel like using the peel and stick wallpaper is super easy. You just have to make sure you have the right tools in order to keep air bubbles from accumulating under the paper.
You’ll want to get a wallpaper tool kit to help you measure, cut, and smooth it out once you apply it to the walls.
I love using the peel and stick wallpaper because you don’t have to deal with the sticky and messy glue.
Applying the peel and stick wallpaper is easy!
- Measure the piece of wall
- Measure the paper
- Cut accordingly
- Peel off the backing
- Stick on the wall slowly while applying pressure from the smoothing tool to release the air bubbles.
