I have a 2019 4-star 2+1 GN with an additional 2' in the dressing room that I put there to install some creature comforts on my own. I elected to have the entire trailer (horse area and DR) lined and insulated from the factory, so it's all aluminum skin with insulation behind it except the GN and drop wall.

It feels a little sterile in the DR area, and I'd like to soften the look of the aluminum skin.

What would you suggest for the application? What kinds of paneling are in RVs/LQs? Can I just wallpaper over the aluminum? Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance, I appreciate it!

Consider there are likely rivet heads on the aluminum sheeting. Wallpapering over the heads will be painful. Perhaps a vinyl or thick fabric might be better.

You may be able to put furring and then attach a pretty wood panel.  I thought people usually put the wood on furring strips and then attached the vinyl to that wood rather than attaching the vinyl or fabric directly to the wall.  Perhaps since yours is already insulated, that isn't necessary.  There should be a lot of information on this site.

I thought about vinyl wrapping it, the way they do cars. Then I saw the price... yowza. That's a no-go.

Then I was looking at stick-on wall paper. Maybe I'll go grab a roll and screw around with it and see how it does over the rivet heads. That stuff isn't cheap either, though.

Do you think I could just paint over it? I'd be okay if the gloss finish was gone, really. That's what makes it feel really "sterile" in there.

I get the heebie jeebies doing anything that I can't return to stock, but I don't plan to sell the trailer anytime soon so I should just get over it, huh? :)

Jwalker1989 - I am in the printing/wrap business.  Yes, it does get expensive.  The wrap material is considered a cast vinyl which means it can be heated to form around rivets.  (also able to do complex curves, ie: fenders, etc).  I would suspect shelf paper to considered calendared (it trys to go back to its original shape and made for flat surfaces).  Also the wrap/cast material is made to come off clean, your shelf paper may leave a lot of residue when it comes time to remove.  (I am not an expert on shelf paper).  Just food for thought.

That was my first thought about the shelf paper - that it would not be easy to remove.  But then, I don't really like wallpaper in a house for the same reason.  My suggestion of the furring strips was to avoid some of those problems, and stick the covering of your choice on thin wood panels that could be removed or remodeled. 
There used to be a lot of pictures here on people's customization of their dressing rooms.  Some of the applications of vinyl were really attractive and perhaps you could investigate the type of adhesive that could make it easier to remove.  It's a very nice trailer and I'm sure you'll find the right solution.  I may run around the site a little - I was away from it for awhile and have to find things again myself.
