treated heavy duck canvas for interior walls

Unread postby RowanMoriarty on Mon Jun 01, 2015 9:03 am

I have a large roll of very nice tent canvas that I would like to use for the wall panels in my travco 270, I feel that it would be much easier cut and install than new wood panels and I know I need to remove them all as I have found some wet/rotted out spots.
Adding storage like pockets and pouches sewn directly to the wall and whatnot would be a breeze
knowing that the travco is fiberglass/steel framed, do the interior wood panels really add very much structural stability to the vehicle? they seem quite flimsy.

No structural stability at all. Cosmetic only. The steel frame, body and believe it or no the spray foam give it it's strength.

Post pics when your done. Be interesting to see.
