How should I finish van walls?

Hi guys,

I'm new to van builds and am really curious as to how I could panel or upholster my van walls. I ripped out the old gross liner and put some Peel n Seal on the walls over some foam board insulation.

How can I give the sides a nice finish that's pretty easy? I'm thinking either auto felt + adhesive or plastic paneling from Home Depot.

thanks!!

Greetings...
There's as many ways to finish off walls as there are DIY builds on this forum : )

I went the soft-fabric route. 3M77 adhesive glue (make sure your dear S.O. is wearing a hair net) and "Hull Liner". Super simple and forgiving (can't really see the seams once done). 5 years after install and looks like day 1.

Whatever you do the biggest thing I've been preached is flammability. What accrete suggests looks like it is all pretty flame resistant, at least after the glue dries.

I didn't really take the flammability issue into account when I went the soft route. Since I had seen it used inside areas on boats that had open flame alcohol stoves and it was approved for use inside, it just hadn't crossed my mind?? Also, it is the same product (or similar) as to what we had in our Parkliner TT, even in the galley area.

YMMV,
Thom
