Default Wall bubbling?

I have a 2007 towlite 19 footer. It seems that our wallpaper is bubbling in several spots. It is getting worse and just isn't on one wall. I thought that maybe it was moisture but I'm not sure how that's possible. It was being stored inside.

Any idea on why this is and what it would cost to repair?

Thanks

Hi-Lo used some paneling that had a problem. Salt crystals form under the vinyl covering, only fix is to replace the paneling. My 2209 has some also.

I wonder how much that is going to cost!

There are some good photos here of panel replacement. Good match.

Default Wallpaper repair

I'm not an expert,but here are some things you can try.Slit the bubble with a zazor blade then get a tube of wallpaper repair paste and try to reglue. Inject the bubble with a glue syringe and then maybe a hair dryer will help the wallpaper to lay flat. Try low heat. I've had to slit wallpaper in my 90 25ft classic and use my fingers,q tip to reglue wallpaper. The wallpaper wrinkled up,glue dried out. Try conservative measures before total wall panel replacement. Hope this helps you.

Mine are in a place that is not easily seen, and they were there when I bought the 2209 trailer but didn't see till several days later, factory had just gone out of business, so I bought with no warranty, but there are hundreds of small bubbles.

Default wall bubles

What a nightmare!! One HiLo owner complained to his dealer about the wall bubbles/defective and the dealer refused to do anything about it. The co. went out of business so the owner was out of luck.
