Camper ceiling
« on: October 14, 2020, 09:49:47 PM »
I have read tons about preparing and painting camper walls...but what about the ceiling?  Does it need sanded and primed first like the walls?  Wasn't sure if it's all the same kind of surface material?

Welcome to the forum.

Are you talking about the exterior of the camper or the inside walls and ceiling?

If it was me, and I was priming the walls, I'd certainly prime the ceiling as well.  Prior cooking odor and smoke can reduce common paint from sticking.  I'd also use quality material simply because RV interiors can be prone to excessive temperature and humidity extremes especially during storage.
