Have a 91 Coachmen with some delamination, and faded striping. Been thinking of DIY repaneling. Anybody tried this? Saw some websited that sell, but looking for the paneling that has the perforated holes spaced evenly on the sides. Looking to glue and screw down the sections.

Welcome ROHawkins to irv2 and the Vintage forum.
Not sure what your asking what kind of siding does your MH have now fiberglass or aluminum siding? I would replace with what ever you have now unless you want to strip it down to inside walls and rebuild completely. Most rebuilds you see in pics the siding was saved and walls rebuilt than reply the siding.
I'm sure someone will help you out just give us some more info so we can apply it.
Enjoy all the forums on irv2 and do post often.

Thanks for the warm reception. The siding is Filon, thought about painting, but was told that this is a major project for the DIYer. And costly if hired out. My next thought was residing, but the paneling would be too big for me too handle. So how about sections, vertical and easier for cut-outs, perforated holes for screw down and also glue down. One prepainted color, no stripes, but very functional, and yes might look good. Would have to paint the basement doors and front/back back I think it is do able. Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Randy

Well, I got some info from www.westsystem.com that addressed how to repair fiberglass sheets delaminating on a boat (similar to the fiberglass panels on an RV was on a project sheet included with info on the West System literature that I sent off for). But some kind soul indicated that those were boats and of course we were referring to RV's and therefore the delaminated fiberglass repair for boats would not apply to RV's. Decide for yourself. You will find an article on a major delamination renovation here. It also explains why delamination occurs (BTW,in an RV the core material is foam but it is still the same thing and the same repair).
