Replacement Wallpaper?

I own a 40' 2006 Fleetwood Revolution LE. We had some water problems and had to remove a portion of the wall above the slide, about 6'X7". This area has wallpaper on it or should I say had wallpaper on it. I would like to replace this small section but have been unable to find the replacement wallpaper. I called Fleetwood and they no longer carry the wallpaper that I need. Does anyone out there know where I can order replacement wallpaper?

Possibly FW could tell you who their supplier was. They might have some.

Thanks a bunch, I called Fleetwood back and they gave me the name of Patrick Industries, which told me when they discontinue a line they get rid of the stock. They were no help at all. I asked for a third party name and they did not have that either.

My wife says take a piece of the original wallpaper to a wallpaper shop. They should be able to match it or come up with a suitable replacement. Good luck.

At this point, perhaps go with a solid color that matches one of the primary colors in the original paper?

X2. My experience has been you're pretty much on your own when it comes to matching. It's always been an exercise in futility. If the wallpaper is off and can't be glued/reused, I would suggest you try to match the texture with something close without regard to the color, then paint it a solid color (along with whatever else is necessary to balance/make it look right) that will work with the rest of the coach.

Done right, you'll be the only one that will ever notice anything's been done!

You could possibly look at doing something in the way of a feature wall in a complimenting paper or a wood border matching the coach woodwork.

It would be beneficial if you could post an overall photo of the problematic area so more suggestions could be brought forth.

Agreed, the wallpaper business is constantly coming out with new designs and getting rid of old ones.

You MIGHT be able to find the original paper on ebay, from someone selling New Old Stock.

Otherwise, I would agree with using a complementary color or pattern on this damaged section- not only will nobody notice, but done well, it will look better than the original.

Don't be afraid to be your own decorator.

Go into one of your lockers and carefully remove a section of paper.

if it were me, I'd remove the rest of the wallpaper on this wall and either get another wallpaper to complement the existing paper on the other walls, or I'd just paint the wall to match your color scheme.

We had the same problem with our 2003 Excursion. Literally spent hours searching and searching. Finally went with complimentary paint. When the coach was sold no one noticed. Good luck.:

On my Revolution, the spec sheet posted in the bedroom closet lists the names/colors of the wallpapers, carpets and fabrics. If you can get the name or number you might be able to find it on the net. Seems like you can buy any obscure and out of production thing on that auction site. Sooner or later someone will be cleaing out their basement and find a couple of rolls and put it up for sale.

I do like the paint idea, though. Sounds easier.

I had the same problem with my 2002 revolution. I found a company called Great Wall I think they are in Michigan. It was not cheap around 300 dollar setup fee plus the price of the paper . They can duplicate your paper if you can send them a good piece to scan. I'm very happy with the results. It's better than wallpapering the whole coach
