Peeling cabinets in minnie winnie

We have a 1995 Minnie Winnie and the cabinet doors are peeling. We need suggestions on repair. The cabinets are not wood--they're a faux-finish oak-colored lightweight material. They can't be painted or sanded or anything like that. It's like contact paper that's coming off from the AZ heat. We also have a strip that runs around the edge of the overhead area that is curling up. Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Most cabinets are made with a veneer covering - sounds like the adhesive has come loose. I am not a woodworking guy and if this happened to me I would find a local woodworking outfit like Rockler and ask them for advise - you might be able to re-glue the veneer or you may have to remove it and replace it with a new sheet of veneer.

Have the same issue on a '97 Gulfstream. Was going to replace all the cabinet doors with pine (helps to have a table saw, router, etc.) and stain, but we decided to brighten up the interior and paint the cabinet doors and frames white. It's a bit labor intensive, but ended up scraping off the loose veneer (doors are a wood product called MDF) with a wood chisel, sanding the exposed MDF and veneer that was still well attached to a smooth finish (100 grit sand paper). Used a white primer designed to adhere to plastic surfaces and wood, then painted over with a semi-gloss. So far happy with the results, but it is a bit of work.
