I've looked high and low for the attached wallpaper - which I believe is (was) pretty standard stuff on many campers, 5th wheels. No one seems to carry it.

Does anyone know where I can purchase it, even if in the form of rolled up excess in your storage area?

The color is actually a biege, sand tone:  http://imgur.com/a/nJOvs

That is likely because it is not standard or true "wallpaper". The inside finish on most RV outside walls comes with the wall panels as part of the sandwich the walls are made of. (Layers of  "Fiberglass", luan plywood (thin), foam insulation, luan plywood (thin), plasticized "wallpaper" finish, all pressed and bonded together.) The walls may be made 'in house' by the bigger RV manufacturers or often bought from an outside supplier.

You may be able to wallpaper over it or paint it as you wish, but you will NOT likely find matching 'paper' anywhere.

Yes, I believe you are correct, although it can still obviously (in my case) peel back from its backing.

What is the technical name for the layered board you describe? If I did a search for it instead of "wall covering" I may have better luck.

I don't think there is one, it is part and parcel of the wall sandwich. (Yes they can still peel, especially if the luan board got wet.)

i found some thing that works better and it looks really good

i pulled off all my wallpaper and painted the wall  and then installed Formica / Laminate Sheets like you would see on counter tops

my RV looks really nice  i well see if i can add pics

there low cost like http://www.ebay.com/itm/Formica-6411-58-Cherry-Riftwood-4x8ft-Laminate-Sheets/152419254882?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D41668%26meid%3D992abdb269324820833c90642565b433%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D152419285164

could not find pics so here is a video of my RV  cut 8 mins in or so or 13 mins in  to see how the walls look
