Anybody paint the inside of their coach?

Our older Chieftain had the ugliest vinyl type paper on the walls that had to go. We used a oil based primer to seal it off and painted with a nice color latex paint..The coach looks good so far as we have a ways to go yet.
Has anyone else done this? I didnt see any drawbacks even though the coach will experience temperature extremes when stored in between trips..

Yes. We did exactly what you did about three years ago. When we're home in the winter, the coach sits in cold storage (down to -40). There's absolutely no problem. With a little bit of paint, new curtains, vinyl flooring and some new furniture, we converted our coach into a very modern looking, pretty coach.

proper (indoor) paint, and amble airing out is important. Paint fumes are the worst.

We just gutted our '99, new furniture, all new flooring, re-finished all wood, re-upolstered booth, window trim and doghouse, some fabric and some leather, and yes, painted the walls!

I have wanted to do this for some time also. I'm glad to hear there is someone out there with 3 years history on the paint. The big temprature swings here in Pennsylvania was my concern as well.

My 5er had a vinyl covering on the walls. I was thinking about stripping it off and painting it with sealer and latex paint. When I sold it, I told the new owner to do that to the walls where the covering was coming off at the top and corners.
