I was wondering if there was a special type of panneling needed in moble homes. I have a moble home that has the thin drywall covered with a thin plastic pattern .
I can not paint it because there are places where the staples have made holes in the plastic. I want to pannel it but some people think I need a special panneling. What do you think and if I do what should I look for.
thanks

I have never heard that you need a special paneling for a mobile home. I do know that they use a very thin wall product for the sole purpose of keeping the cost down.
The nail holes can be filled in with spackling compound and sanded when dry.
Before you paint the walls using a high quality paint,(no $10 a gallon paint,it will not hold up well ) wipe them down with a non oily cleaner.
Hope this was helpful
