I installed wallpaper in a 1993 Gulstream to spruce it up. I tried prepasted and non prepasted. I found that the prepasted didn't hold worth a da*n. I ended up re pasting all edges with the white wood glue. The wood glue seemed to hold the best. I did thy a de-greasing cleaner on the walls first.
New wallpaper made a great deal of difference in the appearance.

DW wants to do it over some paneling. I was figuring on using spackle to smooth nail holes and then rough the paneling up with sandpaper to help the prepasted stick. Just an idea, will know more after I try it.

Unless the nailholes are big they will not show once the wallpaper dries. I still think that the prepasted is not strong enough to hold. I found I still had to redo all the seams with white glue.
I have sold that MH but will look to see if I still have pics.

Plain goes on much better and easier than prepasted.

We just finished the kitchen back wall and belt line border thruout. We used textured vinyl paper for the stone walls and a prepasted vinyl border for the belt line. We were advised from the forum to use professional grade paste. We found this pro 880 paste at Lowes. This stuff is fast drying. No time for booking. Went straight to the wall after pasting. DW loves it. Getting rid of the black belt line was fantastic. IMHO. Click image for larger version

We applied the paper and border right over the existing vinyl. Cleaned it w/ alcohol first.

By "plain" I assume you mean unpasted. Even if it is prepasted, you can still use paste on it instead of the water soak method. And you are right, pasting yourself is much easier to work with and will stick better. One thing I have learned, as some others have mentioned, always thoroughly clean the wall surface before applying the new paper. Takes a little time but eliminates a lot of frustration.

One other piece of advice: buy a seam roller to make the seams and edges stick tight. It's just a small round cylinder with a handle that you roll over the edges of each panel to prevent the edge from lifting. After you hang each piece, use a very wet cloth to wipe it clean of paste before going on to the next one. Once the paste dries, it is nearly impossible to remove the residue. And rinse the cloth frequently.

Good luck.

Got it off eBay. There are very limited supplies here locally.
BTW even on the prepasted border I used the pro 880 paste.

Years ago I re-papered the motorhome we owned at the time. I was going over the existing vinyl paper with another vinyl paper so I used a paste made for this exact issue. For the remaining three years we owned that rig never had an issue with loose wall paper.

Good thread. I have a wallpaper strip that goes on top of the wallpaper that covers the whole wall - it is a decorative strip. It is peeling away in some places. Had anyone tried to get the strips off and replace them?
