Question oak applique

My motorhome has a lot of paper fake oak veneer or applique on the cabinetry. This applique has some unsightly areas and I was wondering if anyone knows how to purchase that stuff so I can repair (cover over) the bad spots.

I think you'll find it's real oak, made in a thin adhesive-backed applique. It used to be called "Woodtape" and was manufactured in Everett, WA. I used to drive past their plant on the way to work at Boeing.

It's been almost 15 years since I retired and I don't know whether the company is still in business. My Georgetown (an '02) also has a lot of the stuff, but it's still in reasonable shape.

Have you tried contacting the manufacturer of your MH?

You can buy adhesive wood veneer for re-doing cabinets in many places. Google it online, or try a local woodworking supply place if there is one near you (larger cities have then). Lowes sells it in their kitchen design area as a special order item - last I knew they used a supplier called Quality Doors, who makes doors and drawers and sells veneers to match, all for remodeling kitchens.

As good as the fake wood wraps are...I'd assume either it is a heat shrink type material or it is been vacuum applied. The seem to do a great job making that material follow contours and such in the cabinet doors and faces. They can sure spruce up the appearance of particle board with that product..sorry I have no clue where it can be bought

Just Google adhesive oak veneer and you will find plenty of sources.

I know what you are looking for - and it's an oak appearing photo paper material and applied similar to contact paper. It is called Thermofoil. I've looked at various veneers and have found them too thick or unwieldy to apply on anything but a smooth and straight surface. Stop in any Home Depot and look at their selections of paneling - mostly same 'stuff'

Transwall - Surface Materials | Thermofoil

or

Sterling Tree Studio - Surface Materials - Thermofoil

Many others sell it as well
