there are some pictures about wall repair on this site, it may be of help-this fellow just used some sort of construction adhesive and bonded pieces of 'baltic' birch/Russian plywood right over the original interior covering

Water Leaks

Bought a project RV which turned out to be too many projects due to water leaks. On the minor leak/rot issues, used a non-shrink spackling compound to fill out the areas "dug out" (took a few build up applications), sanded, overlay and paint. The spackling bonded well with the wood. So far, three months, very happy with the results. Did this on 3 window leak areas.

Water Damage

Sounds very similar to my issues, three areas in all, all due to poorly sealed window frames. My interior plywood is really just a skin over foam (1/16"). Anyway, I did use a high adhesion primer prior to paint. It does help seal the repair area, no bleed through or coverage problems with the paint. So far after 1500 miles on some nasty rattle-bang roads the repairs show no sign of failure. Have fun, hope that works out for you.

Greg, Karen and the pups.
