Cargo Box -Rv type Cabin Tips- Vintage Ideas

Considering buying a shipping container to convert to a bedroom suite at a family property. We can't get our RV to the place. I'm doing some research and was wondering, those of you that restored RV's: what would be a cheap wall covering to use inside after insulating?

Going for a barn like, old Paris theme. Would like it to look vintage. Any thoughts on were to find vintage type wall or ceiling coverings?

Trying to figure out if it's a cost effective way to go. Place already has a bath house. So just need a bedroom, kitchenette area and closet.

Thx for any tips

Thx I checked those out. I think we might just go with a pared down Park Model camper instead, at some point.
